The Arctic Blast Snowmobile Rally is an opportunity to ride the trails with current and former Minnesota Vikings players, coaches and cheerleaders. Vikings team executives and Viktor the Viking also have been known to make appearances at this annual snowmobiling event to support the Vikings Children's Fund.
2016 will mark the 21st year of the Arctic Blast as thousands of snowmobile entusiasts ride sleds to raise money for upper Midwest childern the Viking's Children's Fund supports. Through the Arctic Blast event, support is also generated for several environmental organizations in the Lake Mille Lacs Area.
Multiple designated Blastpoints are located along the approximately 100-mile route of well-groomed snowmobile trails around the Lake Mille Lacs area. With paid registration, riders receive a prize ticket when they check-in to a minimum of three Blast Points. Prize tickets may be turned in for a chance to win the thousands of dollars in prizes that are awarded at the Prize Party held on Sunday, wrapping up the Artic Blast event.
In addition to being your gateway for prize tickets, each Blastpoint also serves as an opportunity to get autographs from and photographs with Vikings players, alumni, coaches, Viktor the Viking, and the Vikings Cheerleaders. Throughout the event, participants can also enjoy a number of giveaways and games.
Participants can pre-register or register day of event at any of the Blast Points.
