    Summer Snowmobile Life: Earning Your Turns - Part2

    Part 2 of our Summer Snowmobile Life series pays a visit to Ski-Doo Backcountry Expert Rob Alford who spends his summer days commercial fishing the coastal waters of British Columbia. While fishing all summer and riding sleds all winter may sound like a dream, uncertain income and long days in the elements can be anything but a day in the sun.

    Summer Snowmobile Life: Earning Your Turns - Part1

    Just how glamourous is the life of a Ski-Doo Backcountry Expert? It’s not exactly red carpets and limousines – especially once they’re off the snow. Like many other Ski-Doo riders, these individuals share the very same passion as you once the ground is white, but in the meantime, they’ll do anything to earn just one more ride.

    Ski-Doo Snowmobile History: Alpine Utility Sleds

    Ask anyone and they’ll probably tell you a snowmobile consists of a track and two skis. It hasn’t always been that way. Twin track snowmobiles were a popular sight on trails, race tracks, and in the bush in the 1970s and even into the ’80s. Few designs, however, teamed twin tracks with single ski like the Ski-Doo Alpine did. Even fewer can claim to have survived more than two decades of production.

    Owen Burrows: An Example for All Snowmobilers

    Many snowmobilers can speak to the passion and dedication the sport so often requires – especially on those bitterly cold mornings when your sled barely wants to start. Few, however, embody those qualities like 15-year-old Owen Burrows.
