There’s no snow on the ground and it’s in a hay field in Minnesota. Some riders consider it the unofficial start of winter. What started out as a snowmobile grass drag event in 1966 has turned into a massive international sledhead gathering that features drag races, a swap meet, and a consumer show. Hay Days is the largest sled event in North America, attracting thousands from the U.S and Canada. It’s the who’s who of snowmobiling all in one place. Food, beer, product, people and fun. And you finally get to see your “winter” friends again!
Concessions of course are a must at any large gathering and Haydays has the best. It has been said, if it has ever been made for a snowmobile you will probably find it at the Haydays. Vendors and swappers come come pulling trailer loads of snowmobiling treasures and represent all interests of snowmobiling.
BCA has our own stand staffed by snowmobile ambassadors Brent Anderson, Brandy Floyd, and Mike Duffy.
Check out booth #SCS5, on the edge of the swap meet, by the large trees and food area. See our new 2016-17 BCA avalanche safety gear:
- The BCA Float 42™ black avalanche airbag is designed for pros, guides, and those prepared for long days or overnights.
- Our redesigned line of BCA Stash backpacks, including the Stash 20™ Kit, an avalanche rescue pack complete with probe & shovel.
- BCA’s MtnPro Collection of snowmobile protective gear, including improvements to our popular Float MtnPro Vest.
Get pointers on how to maintain and use your BCA avalanche safety equipment. BCA will also connect you with sled-specific avalanche class schedules around the country.
Bring your BCA Float packs, deploy your airbag and have it refilled on the spot (for free).
Or just stop by and say hi: we love getting feedback from our customers–and those Midwesterners who ride or want to ride out West.
Heads Up: if you’re not from this part of the country–or are trying to lose a few pounds–consider bringing your own lunch (see menu above) 😉
See you at 2016 Hay Days–new products and free refills for all!

If you can’t make Hay Days, we’ll also be at the snowmobile shows later this fall in Denver, Salt Lake, Puyallup, Boise, and Edmonton. See the latest upgrades to our popular MtnPro protective lineup!
