Photo gallery: Revelstoke Snowarama revival featured snowmobile drag racing

The Revelstoke Snowmobile Club’s Snowarama on Mar. 30 featured drag races at Glacier House Lodge at speeds of up to 140 km/h! There was a barbecue and lots of kids’ events. Bottom right: Gary Van Os, right, is one of a newer generation of sledders picking up the torch for the charity event, which donates to the charity Easter Seals Program. He is joined by Paul Olsen, who ran the Snowarama event for decades, raising $133,000 for the cause.  - Aaron Orlando/Revelstoke Times Review
