Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- For a second year in a row, a lack of snow this winter has led to the delay of the snowmobile portion of the Yeti Tour.

The planned trail ride from Sunset Bar & Grill to Black Bear Casino & Resort will be rescheduled, weather permitting.

Snow or no snow, many Yeti Tour events will continue beginning Friday, January 25th with the ticket turn in and hang out from 7:00 -8:00 pm at the Sunset Bar & Grill.

The Yeti Tour celebration and raffle drawing is set for Saturday, Januarty 26th. The raffle drawing is for a new 2012 Yamaha RS Vector LTX.

This annual event is organized by Nate and Kelly Alvar of Duluth. They created this event in memory of their sons Isaiah, who died as an infant of severe birth defects, and Mason, who died as an infant from extreme prematurity. It is also in honor of their sons Jonas and Elias, a four year old and six month old living happily and healthy.

All proceeds from the Yeti Tour benefit the March of Dimes, whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
