There’s an inevitable change happening in snowmobiling – not necessarily a dramatic one, but nevertheless, a shift in direction.
A much-needed boost of sub-35-year-old riders are becoming drawn to the sport and many don’t fit the mold of the conventional trail-only rider.
While it may not look or feel like what you think snowmobiling is, the industry would be ill advised to turn its back on this new avenue of riding.
If it’s performed safely and managed responsibly, the sport should get behind the free-ride movement and accept each and every rider following the rules.
Trail riding will always be the largest part of snowmobiling but it’s time to embrace all who desire to ride.
