Gentlemen, Start Your Engines
The nice thing about being a snowmobiler is that it doesn't require Michelle Obama to tell us to start our engines... this time of year that just comes natural.
Recent storms have left enough snow in higher elevations for the hardcore snowmobiler to officially start their season. You may have to travel a little bit ... and the lower part of the area between trailhead and higher elevation might be a bit sketchy. But if you show just a little patience, there's certain to be enough snow up high to make it worth your time.
Remember, this time of year there are a lot of obstacles that tend to rearrange the front ends of snowmobiles. So show a little respect to the terrain; but from here on out things will only get better. Have a great winter.

Klim Powerxross Pullover, Freeride Pant
Klim created the original high-performance, lightweight freeriding pullover in the Powerxross years ago. For 2012 Klim completely redesigned the piece with maximum tree-bashing durability thanks to 500D Cordura overlays on the shoulders and elbows. Integrating Cordura into the exterior of the shell makes it the most durable pullover shell ever. Still boasting unbeatably long-lasting waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex construction and Klim's intelligent ventilation system (full pit zips with a full-length size zipper entry), the all-new Powerxross is sure to keep active riders comfortable and in style all season long.
