The idea started back in 2010 when Chris Brewer (CEO SSA) and Steve Whittington (Flaman Trailers) were talking at the end of Saskatoon's snowmobile trade show about how the two groups could work together. Flaman's first online photo contest, Stuck in the Muck, was in its first year and was getting a media swarm as voting had just begun. Chris and Steve thought they could do something together next winter for sledding along the lines of Stuck in the Muck.
The 2010/2011 sledding year came and went. The snow melted, spring came and Steve and Chris of course started talking about sledding again.
In June of this year, Flaman Trailers presented the idea of Sled'N Snap to the Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association, and Chris and his band of directors loved it - as they should; Chris helped come up with the idea. With Saskatchewan on board, Chris and Steve then knew they had to share the idea with the bordering provinces, as sledders travel for snow and different terrain. Ken Lucko in Manitoba was contacted and Chris Brookes in Alberta, and by the end of the summer a partnership between all four organizations was formed with the idea to promote the great sledding contest across Western Canada.
Now the story of Sled'N Snap will unfold as you, the contestant and sledder, tell it through pictures and comments. We hope you have fun sharing photos and stories from across Western Canada.
