The local BRP retailer Koneliike Korteniemi and their racing team Koneliike Korteniemi Racing eagerly joined in to support the event, which was quickly set up to the beginning of the best riding season in January. The event took place in Proboost Arctic Center in Rovaniemi, which provided an ideal setting for safe learning with its closed riding area and varied tracks.
Once the registration day came, the event quickly filled with eager participants willing to learn what snowmobiling was all about. With snowmobiles provided by BRP Finland, thirty women were offered the opportunity to spend the day getting acquainted with the sport. Riding gear was also provided for those in need. Starting a new hobby can hardly be made any easier, which many of the participants later gratefully praised.
The event day dawned crisp and clear, but the cold conditions didn’t bother the eager new snowmobilers, who gathered at the venue buzzing with excitement. The participants learned the basics of snowmobiling on a short lesson, then bravely climbed on snowmobiles, ready to tame the machines most had no previous experience with. They practiced riding first on an easy, even track, but after a while, many moved to challenge themselves on a snowcross-type track with bumps and tight turns. The day's schedule was kept relaxed and laid-back: the participants had open access to various types of snowmobiles and were able to test and try out different sleds, practice their riding skills and ask for advice if needed.
