Shine up that vintage sled for a classic family-friendly poker ride, Dirty Dangles style!

Riders purchase ‘hands’ at the trailhead and proceed in style to checkpoints where they receive ‘numbers’. Best hand at the finish line wins. Only riders on vintage sleds will have the chance to win an award. With that being said, all sleds are welcome to buy poker hands and join in on all the fun.

NB: All details subject to change! Please see the FSA website for full details. 

Post-ride: Silent Auction, Chili and a Bun for $5, trophies for Hard Luck, Little Ripper, Best Vintage, Best Dressed, and Dangler’s Choice!

All riders must have valid FSA membership or purchase $25 trail day use fee. Poker hands: $20 for one or $40 for three.
