Snowmobilers from across state gather in Brainerd Lakes


It’s a part of living for some people. It’s like air. Family.

There’s just nothing quite like a snowmobile ride with a few comrades.

Nearly 300 of those snowmobile enthusiasts will take over the trails this weekend for the 2013 MNUSA Winter Rendezvous at Cragun’s Resort.

The event is conducted each year by one of 250 state snowmobile clubs. This time, the Crow Wing County Snowmobile Trails Association will play host.
