Although summer is raging across North America, there are still some of us stuck in snow mode ... which isn't a bad way to be based on the record high temperatures being posted.
Here at SnoWest, we're actually hitting full speed in preparing this fall's issues. Winter is just around the corner and it's never too soon to make plans for the upcoming season ... which promises to be the best one yet.
This week there are a few things worth noting. In the snowmobile industry the western hillclimb circuit wrapped up its season in April with the first ever Powder Mountain Snowmobile near Eden, UT. Also, for you techno geeks, two new mobile phone apps from Polaris have hit the market for Apple iPhone/iPad and Android phones/tablets. And finally, Arctic Cat unleashes its lineup for 2012.
If you haven't been keeping up with the forums, below we have some links to some pretty fun stuff.
First, there's been a lot of buzz going around about Ryan Harris' ride with "overly competitive people" in July. It's fun to see diehards highmarking in the middle of summer.
There's an interesting thread about a New Orleans lawyer trying to secure a title from FHA. Plus there's an informative discussion on the new Timbersled Mountain Tamer suspension.
If you're looking for hope to get you through this long hot summer, there's a weather forecast for this coming winter that you don't want to miss. Some scientific explanation about La Niña and atmospheric cycles and solar activity; when you put this all together with a PhD and some impressive words I can't pronounce or spell, you have a forecast of record-breaking snow. (Where's my Snobunje?)
Finally, forum member ACMtnCat revisits the place where he almost spent the rest of his life earlier this winter. It's nice to see someone stare death in the face . and then catch fish.
