    Default What will you be riding this year?

    Time to vote for the snowmobile you'll be riding this year. I recall last year's survey was lead by Polaris, then Ski Doo and followed by Cat and Yamaha. Let's see what this year brings. Voting is anonymous but you can comment on your make and model, pictures are great too.

    I'll be on my 2017 Blizzard this year. Ironically, it didn't leave the garage last year as I came down with the flu (Covid?) for the entire month of February. So I can't wait to hit the trails this season.

    Here's a video from 2018. Nothing too special just a great day to be on the trails. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9vm_nYe8rU

    2018 cat 800 cross country. One last season with it, and it’s been a great choice for me.

    nothing new, still my 2017 ElTigre and 2009 F8...interesting though remembering previous polls, Polaris so far strong lead over Doo and Cat over Yamaha?? are we seeing a shift?? quite frankly it really doesn't matter what I ride as long as I ride! so looking forward to hitting the trails!!

    well for me, due to finance issue's and health issue, I will be riding the couch and lazy boy, and MAYBE a buddy's sled if snow ever returns back to PA , been a while since we had any real snow here for trails to open!

    but I wish you all a great white season and lots of safe miles of riding!
    but for me I will be just enjoying reading about others fun and rides!

    I thought in order to qualify as vintage it had to be 30 years old?

    Probably - the ‘93 is more of a classic - it’s just what I have. Not placing it in a show. Our club had a couple trips last year where a few shows took place, and they did a ride during the afternoon. It looked like it would be fun to participate on something older.

    As of last week mine still had a ship date of Nov 22 (today!!) but I’m not holding my breath. Seeing lots of posts in the FB groups about guys ship dates being pushed back weeks or even months. Couple guys said their ship dates are showing into January now. One guy even posted his “buddy who works for Polaris” said up to 4000 Matryx sleds may not even get built at all. I’m definitely taking that with a grain of salt, but sure makes me nervous. And I’m one of the dumdums who waited til after Apr 15 to order so I won’t even get the $500 merch credit. Facepalm. Dang Covid ruining everything...

    Word in the street up here is COVID had up to 45 workers out and about the same amount of temporary workers were brought in to help. The extra workers helped but didn't assist with the higher demand (COVID pressure on all outdoor equipment), so Poo is still behind.

    Yeah, a guy I know who is an IT guy at Polaris told me they were building the Switchbacks the weeks of Dec 21 and Dec 28..... so most likely not seeing my new sled until mid January. Oh well, let it snow! The backup is ready!

    Too bad to hear on the late ship dates. That doesn't surprise me one bit though. Different times right now.
    I was fortunate to pick my wife's sled up last March. About 1 week before everything shut down.

    2019 Arctic Cat 9000 SnoPro. I sold my 2000 Thundercat in March, miss it already. I did rid the 2019 last year and it's a great sled. At almost 60 years old it was time for electric start and reverse.
