2019 Snowbike Gathering

February 23, Park Mountain & Nelson Mountain (Lumby B.C.)

The Snowbike Gathering has become a sizable annual event that brings together the highest concentration of snowbikers found anywhere. We invite you to come check out our ever-evolving event as it enters its 3rd year.

Don’t worry. It’s not a snowbike traffic jam. We have two huge mountains to explore, and plans to get you to the destinations of your choosing.

There is no charge for this event, however, you need to have/buy a trail pass from the Lumby Snowmobile Club ($20). Cool?

We have a tweaked format planned for 2019 that will create more adventure for everybody, and offer an element of competition to those who like to compare scores.

Okanagan Drone Productions

We are excited to be a part of this event! Filming the swarm of snowbikes from the sky is really exciting. We had a great time during the 2016 and 2018 events where there were an estimated 70+ snowbikes. Hopefully this year we’ll have even more. 100? It will certainly be a world record video shoot once again.

We will also be filming some tree riding segments where anybody can get involved. We hope you come join us so we can get you on “The Big Canon”. Heroics not required, just come ride a little segment and let us film you.

Trevor is our Master Shi-Fu Video Guy. He coaches us so we can build our modest video skills.

Trevor will be filming both the snowbike swarm and some super slow motion tree riding using what we lovingly call “Camzooka”.

Let Trevor guide you. He can make a simple turn in the powder, or little jump, look amazing! You’ll love watching yourself in the featured event video.
