How to Make a Snow Snake

Snow snakes are a fun wintertime outdoor activity following a Native American tradition. A Snow Snake starts with a one inch diameter dowel that is 3 feet long with steel weighted added for speed. You may carve and varnish the stick and prepare for racing down a snow-packed run. The Chief Pontiac Programs committee is selling snow snake kits for $5 each. Snow Snakes may be purchased in person at CPP sponsored snow snake events or ordered on line directly from the Chief Pontiac Programs Committee at : The CPPC store.
