In addition to hosting a Race for the Cure event, the MN/ND/SD ALS Association organizes the annual Black Woods Blizzard Tour. The 2016 event, which is the organization’s 17th Black Woods Blizzard Tour, occurs on February 3-6. Experienced snowmobilers begin in Proctor, MN, move on to Lake Vermillion, and then loop back to Proctor. Speeds average 40 mph during the ride, and riders average around 150 miles during the first two days. To participate, riders must raise at least $1,500. However, the organization provides fuel, lodging, and food during the event.
