Best Pitstops?

Postby JohnPrusak » October 25th, 2017, 3:35 pm

We're putting together our Best 101 Trailside Pitstops story again, and seeing if any of you folks who still ride have any places of note... If you have a place you'd like to nominate, send an email to our new Managing Editor Nick Longworth at nlongworth@snowgoer.com namechecking the place, it's location, and then one sentence or blurb on what makes it special (something special on the menu? supports local clubs? snowmobiling decor? etc.)

Here's a brief description of what we're seeking:
What makes a great (or at least really good) snowmobiling pitstop, from our perspective?
• It must have food, not just drinks. And, if it has something that it’s known for (best burgers? Some unusual appetizer? Fish fry? A certain sandwich or entre?) that’s even better.
• It should have a location that a snowmobiler can ride right to.
• It should have a snowmobiler-friendly atmosphere and attitude – the sort of place that welcomes us in, maybe has a place to hang gear, a parking area just for sleds, etc.
• When you pull up to it on the first Saturday of February (for example) it’ll have a bunch of sleds parked outside.
• This isn’t about lodging establishments – certain, a pitstop can have lodging, but this is about being a good trailside place to stop for lunch or dinner; lodging shouldn’t be a factor, pro or con.

If youse ever find yourself in Argonne WI , make sure to stop at Ed's Main Street.
Lot's of good food and if you like mushrooms , get an order of deep fried portabellas.
