Racking up some miles
Even though it may have taken Old Man Winter a while to get here, it’s been nice to finally be able to get out on the snow without worrying about rocks and stumps on the trail. And even though the snow depths are quite a bit off from last year, at least we’re riding.
If there is a benefit to the lack of storm clouds (and we’re really stretching here to find a benefit), it is that most of our riding days have featured blue skies and great visibility. What a stark contrast to last season where the snow was great but we spent most of our rides in flat light
Although most snowmobilers are just trying to rack up miles on their 2012 snowmobiles, we have been busy finding seat time on some of the 2013 prototypes. In this ever-changing industry, what’s new on the snow this year is in the process of being replaced by the new features coming up for next year. Its remarkable how some ever-so-subtle changes can make significant advancements in product performance.
Obviously, we aren’t allowed to release information on the 2013s until sometime in March. So for now we will merely encourage you to put as many miles on this year’s sled as possible … after all, you do want it worn out by the end of the season so you can justify putting a down payment on next year’s exciting stuff .
