So what’s happening in the snowmobile industry? The atmosphere out there is that this has been a great snow season and there’s a lot of optimism going into next fall. With that said, in the back of everyone’s mind is SnObamanomics (what role will politics and the economy play as we enter next season). Time will only tell.
Some of the quick links we’re offering provide easy access to news—such as a look at an Avalanche Survey designed to help the industry understand more about the dangers of winter. Next month we’re looking for a sun screen survey to challenge the dangers of summer.
Also in the news is the welcomed story of snowmobile sales actually increasing this past winter. Sometimes we feel like a yo-yo around here. But it’s always nice to be on the upside of the yo. As for an update that has generated a lot of interest during the spring, everyone’s keeping an eye on Arctic Cat’s new line—particularly the ProClimb 800. Again, we’ll keep you updated.
Finally, here’s what’s going on in the Forums.
There’s an interesting thread entitled “If we rode snowmobiles on the internet.” It’s always fun to see some of the sarcasm that floats around online. Although an open forum deals with real people who may not have a lot of talent to express themselves with words, there’s a lot of subtleties in just a few words.
Another thread “Lack of morals” sort of gives you a take on what people are thinking about what’s going on in this country. Some choice words of wisdom here.
Also, there’s a great 4-minute video of Jay Mentaberry carving through some awesome powder … just what we need to get through summer. I just want to know who pushed him off the cliff—awesome jumps.
