Our official Lodging Partner for the Wausau SNOW Drags is the Badger Hotel, 3209 E Main St, Merrill, WI 54452. Please call Phone:(715) 536-6880.
The Wausau SNOW Drags is pretty much in the middle of Wausau and Merrill, so while the Badger Hotel is located in Merrill, it is under 10 miles from the race site.
The Badger Hotel has a pool, bar (with food), and is a great place for the entire family to stay at. This is where Sandy and I and our staff will be staying. We’d love to sit in the bar and chit chat on Friday, then sit around the pool on Saturday and talk to all our MASTERS Racing Circuit Family.

Mountain Lions Hill Challenge at Adventure Mountain, Greenland, MI, Saturday, March 12
This year the Superior Snowmobile Club will be using a groomer to build the Hill Challenge Course. Just as last year, we will have a ‘table top/jumps’ at the bottom of the hill, then the racers will transition into a series of gates going up the hill. This is one sled at a time against the clock.
Unlike the Hillclimbs, you do not have to attend the Friday NIght Registration and the ‘draw.’ However you then have to have your registration in to the MASTERS, by Thursday, March 10th. We use the Hillclimb Registration for Hill Challenge, so fill out the Hillclimb Registration and send this in, with the fee’s too: MASTERS, % Adventure Mtn, 610 Greenland Road, Ontonagon, MI 49953.

The MANDATORY Saturday Morning Drivers Meeting will be at 9:30 am ET. You are asked to WALK the course before the Drivers Meeting. Depending upon snow conditions, we ‘may’ allow you to practice on the BOTTOM of the hill, but no one will be allowed to run the gated slalom going up the hill. This will be snow dependent, and if we have good snow conditions, the ‘practice runs’ will go from the conclusion of the drivers meeting for only a half hour.
The Pro Stock King of the Hill and the Pro Mod King of the HIll will qualify for the 2017 World Championship Hillclimb in Jackson WY.
