Okay, the lollipops was bit of a stretch but there was
plenty of candy—including suckers—at the various booths at the Intermountain
Snowmobile Show in South Jordan, UT, this past weekend.
And we’re not just talking candy you could eat. There was
all sorts of other eye candy thousands of snowmobile enthusiasts were looking
at all Saturday day long. There were new sleds from all the major
manufacturers, along with numerous mod sleds, antique and vintage sleds and
pieces and parts of sleds spread out throughout the Salt Lake County Events
Center. And outside there
were a few used sleds looking for a new owner at the swap meet.
Sponsored by SnoWest Magazine
and the Utah Snowmobile Association, the Intermountain Snowmobile Show
experienced another great day on the second day of the show. Hundreds of people
attended the seminars, many sledders walked out with dozens of door prizes,
kids and adults had a great time picking and choosing which color and design
they wanted on a hat being painted right in front of them at the Klim Hat
Booth, several folks watched snowmobiling videos at the 509 Theater on the
upper level, many voted for their favorite mod sled in the Western Power
Sports/Ultimax Belts mod show as well as their favorite vintage sled in the
antique/vintage sled display and dozens more got a free lunch from Arctic Cat,
which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and threw a
lunch party at the snow show. Others got a chance to see what we’re doing for
our latest SnoWest project sled.
No doubt there was plenty going on at the snow show and
those who attended got their snowmobile fix at least until the snow flies.
