Get to know Idaho-based Ski-Doo Backcountry Expert Tony Jenkins, in his own words.
If you stopped by to see the new Ski-Doo snowmobiles at a Spring Fever tour show, you had a chance to enter a contest to win $5,000 to use on any Ski-Doo items. Dan Deluke of New Hartford, New York is the big winner!
Dan entered the contest checking out the 2017 Ski-Doo sleds at the SnowFest show in Old Forge, NY.
One the the highlights of a trip to the birthplace and home of Ski-Doo snowmobiles is the J-Armand Bombardier Museum. The museum re-opened in June 2016 after an 18-month, $14 million total reimagining and it is a must-see for any snowmobile or transportation enthusiast.
Watch the video to take a tour of the new museum with Ski-Doo Backcountry Expert Carl Kuster and 2016 Iron Dog snowmobile race winners Tyson Johnson and Tyler Aklestad.
Tyler Aklestad and Tyson Johnson have been racing Ski-Doo sleds in the legendary Iron Dog Alaskan cross-country-race for more than a decade. In February 2016, they finally broke through and won the 2,031 mile race.

Believe it or not, after 3,600 miles (5,794 km) of mountain riding I was ready for summer. The change of seasons and the break from riding my Ski-Doo Summit is what renews my interest and excitement in the next riding season. But before calling it quits, I like to end my season in style every year.
