White Outs ... (Staff Blogs)
Let's see, it goes "30 days past September; April, June and November …" By my math, that means October is the only long month left we have to wade through before we see the snow fly. And that month is loaded with snowmobile shows across the country.
So now that we're into September (which only has 30 days … including Haydays), I'd say the season is officially upon us. It’s time to start placing those orders for snowmobile accessories that will make this winter the best ever.
Okay, so some of you may not like the way I do my math. The temperatures have been in the 90s. Most of us are either in the harvest, getting (our kids) back in school, and stock-piling an ample supply of beverage for the upcoming football season.
But don't look now, the winter is coming full bore (take a look at some of the winter forecast links below) and it's time to get the sled ready for riding.
And look at the bright side. By the time you get through this newsletter, the season will be that much closer.

Snow Fronts ... (Industry Headlines)
Military Planning Silent Snowmobiles
In a story by the Mark Newsroom, it seems Canada is putting more faith in its snowmobile budget than nuclear weapons or missile defense to keep those pesky Russians (and musk ox) in check.
The Department of National Defense plans to invest $550,000 into the project aimed at solidifying Arctic sovereignty via military riding "silent" snowmobiles. Nothing was mentioned whether the DND would also invest in a silent groomer.

This SLP Single Pipe Set for the 2011-12 Polaris 800 Pro chassis delivers an additional 7.6 hp peak with good midrange gains, which equates to crisp, clean throttle response and quicker acceleration with more top-end speed on the trail.
As an added bonus, this pipe set drops 3.7 lbs. of weight. In the deep snow, this added horsepower and weight loss gets you up on the snow quicker, allows you to climb higher and boondock better.
