White Outs ... (Staff Blogs)
Although summer is raging across North America, there are still some of us stuck in snow mode ... which isn't a bad way to be based on the record high temperatures being posted.
Here at SnoWest, we're actually hitting full speed in preparing this fall's issues. Winter is just around the corner and it's never too soon to make plans for the upcoming season ... which promises to be the best one yet.
This week there are a few things worth noting. In the snowmobile industry the western hillclimb circuit wrapped up its season in April with the first ever Powder Mountain Snowmobile near Eden, UT. Also, for you techno geeks, two new mobile phone apps from Polaris have hit the market for Apple iPhone/iPad and Android phones/tablets. And finally, Arctic Cat unleashes its lineup for 2012.
If you haven't been keeping up with the forums, below we have some links to some pretty fun stuff.
First, there's been a lot of buzz going around about Ryan Harris' ride with "overly competitive people" in July. It's fun to see diehards highmarking in the middle of summer.
There's an interesting thread about a New Orleans lawyer trying to secure a title from FHA. Plus there's an informative discussion on the new Timbersled Mountain Tamer suspension.
If you're looking for hope to get you through this long hot summer, there's a weather forecast for this coming winter that you don't want to miss. Some scientific explanation about La Niña and atmospheric cycles and solar activity; when you put this all together with a PhD and some impressive words I can't pronounce or spell, you have a forecast of record-breaking snow. (Where's my Snobunje?)
Finally, forum member ACMtnCat revisits the place where he almost spent the rest of his life earlier this winter. It's nice to see someone stare death in the face … and then catch fish.

Snow Fronts ... (Industry Headlines)
RMSHA Closes Out Season This Weekend In Utah
The first ever Powder Mountain Snowmobile Hillclimb is this weekend (April 16-17) at Powder Mountain Resort near Eden, UT. It’s your last chance to catch snowmobile race action this season.
Spectators will have prime viewing areas on the mountain to watch the snowmobile race up the 1150-foot vertical foot Cache Bowl. The Timberline Lodge, Powder Keg and Timberline area will be transformed into a snowmobile mecca with everything from food, beer gardens, vendors, sponsors, entertainment and a lot of RMSHA snowmobile hillclimb racers.
Polaris Launches Mobile Apps For iPhone, Android
Minneapolis-Two new mobile phone apps from Polaris have hit the market for Apple iPhone/iPad and Android phones/tablets.
Developed in partnership with Broadcast Weather, LLC, the new mobile apps combine Weather Nation's interactive weather services with Google-based maps to enhance the riding experience for snowmobilers (the "Snow Trails" app) and Victory Motorcycles riders (the "Victory Rides" app).
Arctic Cat Mountain Lineup 2012
It may be one of the most anticipated releases in the mountain market in recent years. And Arctic Cat didn't disappoint with its lineup for 2012.
And we haven’t even ridden the new sleds yet.
The general buzz in the industry-from consumers to the aftermarket to the media-was that this was the year for Arctic Cat to unveil something new. Although things can change, we'd say it was a given that Cat would come through with a new platform for the upcoming season. But the company did catch a lot of folks by surprise by what they put in, on and around those new chassis.
