The attractive new sign and sled parking area in
front of the museum was necessary as there was
 a re-route of the main trail along Hy 70 West

The Board of Directors of the SNOWMOBLE HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM is happy to announce that we have moved into our new expanded facility. The new Warning Gallery has added 5,000 feet to our exhibit space. All SHOF operations are now located in one location for the first time since our establishment in 1983. 

The facilities are located at the beautiful twenty acre HALL OF FAME campus nestled in the tall pines on St. Germain's west side. When traveling down Hwy 70 from east or west, you will know you have arrived when you get to the "s" curves ("S" as in Sleds!)

Stop in and see historic race sleds, trophies, clothing and the Ramstad Photo Collection. View racing videos in our theater. Visit our well stocked gift shop... great ideas for the race and recreational snowmobile enthusiast!

Championship sleds on display include oval, enduro, hill-climb, cross country, water-cross, snow-cross & drag sleds raced by championship drivers such as Karpik, Wicht, Musselman, Coltom, Hayes, Elsner, Solem, Bernat, Frandsen, Nelson, Bender, Maki, Hibbert, Morgan and Vincent.




The SHOF does not have a sno-cam but these are just down the road here in
St. Germain.

We want to thank everyone who brought their beautiful sleds for many to us admire over this beautiful
weekend. The old iron was in abundance and a beautiful site to see. We hope that everyone found a
great deal and what you were looking for in the swap area. Just think only 364 more days until next
year! That gives us time to restore a great sled or find that rare sled that we only have to shine and load
up. Good luck to everyone on their projects and we look forward to seeing you next year!

Friday morning at the Snowmobile Hall of Fame in St. Germain, Wisconsin opened up with a beautiful sunny day and snow filled trails. Everyone arrived around 9:00am for a trial/poker run put together by Fuzzy Zeller. After riding approximately 40-50 miles with 5 stops to draw cards, the winner of the poker hand received 50% of the money while the SHOF receives the other 50%. After the ride, everyone returned to the SHOF for an Open House, including a bonfire and cook-out.

Saturday morning began with beautiful crisp blue skies along with a breakfast buffet and followed by the introduction of all the celebrity riders that were in attendance.




After breakfast, it was time for the 140 riders to head to the trails for the 31st Annual "Ride with the Champs". There were six different rides, going in six different directions and all leaving from St. Germain. The rides consisted of 2 modern sled rides and 3 vintage sled rides; including a short vintage ride traveling approximately 30 miles; the "Swamp Challenge" which was about 100 miles; and the "Vintage Challenge", that went all the way to Lake Gogebic, MI, for a 165 mile loop.


After returning to the hotel for a quick "fluff and buff", everyone gathered again at the White Tail Inn for the main event, the induction banquet to honor our four inductees for 2014: Ted Nielsen, Tom Rager, Sr., Don Omdahl and Loren Anderson.

The banquet started with an autograph session, a silent auction and then onto the induction of our 2014 honorees.

As I sat there for my 18th induction ceremony and listened to the words from the last inductee to speak, I realized the experience is still the same as it was the first time... very exciting and humbling, all at the same time!
