 MESC returns to where it all started in 2015, Lutsen Mountains. 

 When we were planning the original MESC event for 2015 we had spent the past 4 years scouting locations capable of hosting an event like this and after we got it to our short list it was tough to choose the perfect place to host such an event. It obviously had to be a ski resort so that forced us to look at one that was capable of having snow that late in the season as well as the type of terrain we feel makes the MESC series unique for the Midwest and most of all that would be willing to allow snowmobiles to race on their hills.

 First thing we looked at was vertical drop and Lutsen Mountain is the 2nd steepest ski resort in the entire Midwest so that shot it to the top of our list and then after the first initial site evaluation we knew we had to figure out to secure this resort for the MESC series. Just a few short months later and it was finalized that Lutsen Mountain was to host the inaugural Midwest Extreme Snowmobile Challenge!

 The cross country portion of the racing was a true blend of snocross and cross country racing, the Hillclimb course had racers smiling ear to ear as they had not had the opportunity to compete on a hill this steep here in the Midwest for a very long time, & the crew built an awesome Hill X course but unfortunately mother nature had other plans for that...

 We are working with the Lutsen Mountain staff to build upon the foundation we laid with the 2015 & 2016 events to make the 2017 even better!!

This event has been a racers and fans favorite for the past two years, very spectator friendly and snowmobile racing on a ski hill in April overlooking Lake Superior; what more could a race fan ask for???


Hillclimb racers face the steepest and most challenging hillclimb course in the Midwest at Lutsen Mountains, 3 riders at this event will earn spots at the Jackson Hole World Championship hillclimbs!!
