Although I don’t think there are any “bad” sled choices this season, there are certainly a few I’m more excited about than the rest. This one might surprise you.
Don’t laugh… this is an important sled – and it’s one of those sleds that needs to be looked at in proper context.
I’m excited about it because of what it means for the future of our sport… and maybe a little bit because I had a SnoScoot when I was a kid and have nothing but great memories about it.
The future of snowmobiling, like any sport, is dependant on getting new and young people involved and passionate about it. Until now there’s been a pretty sizeable gap in the snowmobile market for young people who are too big for a 120 but still too small for a full size, fan cooled sled.
Safety is paramount, especially when kids are involved. So once a little guy or girl outgrew their 120, a parent had only two options. Keep them off the snow until they grow a bit more and can handle a bigger sled or take the risk and put them on a bigger sled. Obviously, neither are acceptable.
Today the SnoScoot, as it did in the past, perfectly fills the gap and gives your growing kid a stepping stone between a 120 and a full-size sled, keeping them engaged and passionate about the sport, ensuring its future.
I’m not going to claim the SnoScoot is only fun for young people, though. I happen to know for a fact it’s a blast for grown-ups who are still young at heart.
