Make plans to enjoy our brisk, February weather and attend the Vintage Scorpion Snowmobile Homecoming sponsored by the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce with assistance from the local snowmobile club, the Snow Serpents. Held annually in conjunction with the Serpent Lake Ice Fishing Contest, the Homecoming is a welcome opportunity for former Scorpion employees, racers, collectors and snowmobile enthusiasts to gather at Crosby Memorial Park.

Scorpion was responsible for many of the snowmobile industry’s early innovations, including stylish fiberglass construction and continuous rubber track, which revolutionized the industry. Scorpion energized the community and provided economic stability during a time of transition from an iron-ore based economy. Although Scorpion closed its doors in 1981, recent years have brought a resurgence of interests in the firm’s designs. Hobbyists collect the machines and many painstakingly restore them to their original, showroom condition.

The Scorpion homecoming event showcases these snowmobiles from the early air sleds to the final sno pro championship racers. Admire the vintage Scorpions as they start their engines and form a line for a trail ride around Serpent Lake. If you are interested in Cuyuna Lakes history or perhaps own a Scorpion snowmobile, create an afternoon of memories at the Scorpion Homecoming.
