Is Sno Blind just like Sno Fari, but not Sno Fari?

Same motel, same trails, different group putting it on.
I've been to sno blind once, snofari several times. I found sno blind to be a little more stuffy but a well run event.

I have heard people say each event has a very distinctly different feel to it even though both events are held at the same hotel and some of the trails are the same.

Can someone who has been to both chime in?

EDIT: Thanks Jim!

Thanks. I was reading in the events forum on GLFWDA and noticed that SnoBlind had the same registration date as SnoFari, but the event took place in Feb. Just curious as to this was my first SnoFari and really enjoyed it, so thought I would see what SnoBlind was all about

Tailgate report done.

Thanks to everyone, we had a great time, great friends (new and old), and great food. I cannot list everthing or everyone that I am thankful to, but thank you. This was my first trip and I hope that I can get in next year.

I have been to both now (1st time at Snofari this year) and thought Snofari was better. It really all depends what group your in and how capable the rigs are that determines the pace you go through the trails, waiting for some to get up a hill, etc. But this year at Snofari was great. I will definetely be back next year. I will say the average age of all the participants and staff in Snofari is a bit younger then SnowBlind which seems to make it a bit more exciting.

Bottom line, both events are great and help out the sport we all love and also gives a lot of money to the good town of West Branch. I love going to the Quality in with the Lumber Jack and have become good acquaintances with the wait staff. Thanks again to all that put this on and fight for the trails to stay open. Without you, we wouldn’t have either of these events!

I thought the Snoblind was all filled up ?? Last time I talked to Paul about it , he said there was only a couple spots left and that was over a month ago ?? Because I wanted to make sure my Jeep survived the Snofari before I committed to the Snoblind !?

Yep, last time I talked to them they only had 3 spots left and were going to stop accepting registrations the end of that week (and yes that was about a month ago). But if you know a guy who knows a gal sometimes things change.

The same. Except sausage instead of burgers. And the vegetable might have been different.

I cannot say enough good things about how awesome this event was for me and my co-rider. It was definitely a good time all around... The only one thing I could have asked for was a Star Trek teleported to get me me home Sunday morning... I was SoFowked up, I couldn't even empty the room and pack the jeep for the ride home... Damn you Americans and you inexpensive booze....
