Grip the Hands of more than 1000 North American Snowfighters!


They grip the wheels of their snowplows all winter long, working countless hours to keep streets in their communities cleared. And when the snow season is over, they come to the Show for Snow for four days to find the best solutions, the newest technologies, and the latest innovations to keep their streets clear and the people in their municipalities and communities safe.

Secure your space today and join us April 12-15, 2014 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for the one time each year you can grip the hands of more than 1000 of North America’s Snowfighters!
