Since the last newsletter, the SnoWest staff has been busy wrapping up summer and preparing for the upcoming winter season. Since winter left us last season in so much haste, it left a rather lengthy void that needed to be filled with warm weather activities.
For some, golf can go a long ways in soaking up the sun until the start of a new winter season. For others, fishing hits the spot.
But with the extend summer, we turned to ATVs and side-X-sides to beat the heat. Although this activity can in no way fulfill the need for snow, it's still an activity that involves speed, power and Mother Nature.
The biggest drawback with wheeled toys, when compared to snowmobiles, is the lack of freedom. Although there are some great trails that expose you to some spectacular vistas and backcountry, it can never match the sensation of floating through snow and climbing to the tops of the tallest mountains. But on the other hand, when the snow is gone, the sleds must be parked.
You may not have the freedom that snow offers, but you can still ride.
