Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum in Naubinway, just off US 2, on Lake Michigan, is Michigan’s only museum dedicated to the best “old and odd” examples of snowmachines, from antiques to prototypes. Museum exhibits include snowmobile-related literature, clothing, signage and other memorabilia. Each winter Naubinway attracts hundreds of antique and vintage sleds to the Top of the Lake Snowmobile Show February 18-19, which includes a breakfast ride, bonfire ride, Hus-Ski Hustle, display of sleds, food booths, banquet and auction.
The winter calendar is dotted with vintage races and rides, such as the Cedarville Blizzard 200 January 28-30. It’s part of the five-event Great Lakes Antique Snowmobile Series that begins January 15-16 with the Cheboygan Rusty Stud and wraps with the Sault Ste. Marie Tired Iron 150, March 12-13.
In the market for a sled? Check out the White Star Auction in Bronson, near Coldwater. It’s the home of the largest selection of snowmobiles sold at auction in the U.S.
