Features

 

18 Class Act

The mountain 800s are the heart of the industry in the West and have become real mountain mashers in the past few years. We dissect them a couple of times a season just to see what they're made of. Here's what we think so far. By Steve Janes

 

26 No Bones About It

This 1,000-square-mile-plus riding area often gets overlooked by sledders. That's okay, especially for those who regularly snowmobile here and would just as soon keep it all to themselves. By Steve Janes

 

32 Getting The Most Out Of Your Used Sled

So you went the used snowmobile route and want to make sure you get the most out of your purchase—and also make sure you're not left stranded in the backcountry with a broken down machine. Here are some tips on how to avoid that. By Tyrell Marchant

 

36 SnoWest Clothing Showcase

Last issue it was helmets. Not it's time to show off some new jackets and bibs. There is some sweet snowmobile gear right here.

 

42 Intermountain Snowmobile Show Is Just Weeks Away

Fall is a sure sign of three things: leaves changing colors, hunting season and snowmobile shows. The first SnoWest snow show is right around the corner.

 

46 In Depth: Stock Running Boards

We take a look at one area of a snowmobile that doesn't get a lot of attention … that is, until they load up with snow and become a little slippery.
