White Outs ... (Staff Blogs)
Now that your new sled is here …
After waiting all summer in anticipation for this year's snowmobile, the call finally came from the local dealership to come pick up your sled. Now what?
Well, we have a few more weeks before the snow depth builds up to the point where you don't risk losing the entire front of your sled to a rock or a stump. But by darn, it's here; you have your sled and you want to enjoy it.
Now is the time to accessorize your snowmobile (even if it's last year's sled). Now is the time to add power, performance and/or bling-anything that makes your sled unique and more special than the snowmobiles your buddies ride.
Good news. The latest issue of Mod-Stock should be coming in the mail soon for our subscribers … or to the newsstand for those looking. This year's Mod-Stock issue is tucked inside the December issue of SnoWest and features hundreds of great products that will enhance your snowmobiling experience.
It may be just a little too early to ride ... but it's never too early to prep your ride.

BRP Expands Avalanche Safety Awareness
BRP is expanding its outreach program on avalanche safety awareness into the western United States. The program was launched in Western Canada last year.
From September through November a qualified avalanche safety instructor will provide free courses at 21 BRP Ski-Doo dealerships in Canada and 19 others in the United States. The courses are open to owners of all snowmobile brands and are presented from a snowmobiler's perspective. Attendees can expect an informative, interactive and fun evening. Many sessions will be combined with in-store special events.
Polaris Supports Snowmobile Associations
For the seventh consecutive year, state and provincial snowmobile organizations across North America are receiving contributions from the Polaris "Winning Riders" program, which generates support for the groups based on sales of new Polaris snowmobiles.
From Newfoundland to Washington and Alaska to Quebec, snowmobile associations are receiving "Winning Riders" funds proportionate to the number of new Polaris snowmobiles sold within each state and province. Polaris is making contributions to snowmobile associations in 12 Canadian provinces and territories and 25 states in the United States.

Exit Shocks For 2012 Cats
Zbroz Racing is releasing its Exit line of shocks for the new 2012 Arctic Cats. Zbroz has spent a lot of time testing and tuning its shocks for the new chassis. With the help of Team Arctic Cat and Tapio Racing, these shocks scored three victories at RMSHA events this season.
Zbroz has also been working hard to help the new Cats work better in everyday backcountry terrain and trail riding with its Exit shocks. All Exit shocks are tuned to rider weight and ability for the best possible ride quality. Why settle for an off-the-shelf shock when you can have a truly custom-built shock?
Available for the font ends in three options depending on shock length.
For more information see the Gear Box Section in SnoWest October 2011 issue or
