We recently came across this great article by Art Gib that we wanted to share with you. We would love to hear about some of your favorite snowmobile adventures too. If we hear from enough of you we will compile these into a future blog.
Ways To Enjoy Snowmobiling
by Art Gib
Snowmobiling is a great way to get some high intensity adventure or to enjoy the scenery of a new location during the winter months. However, some may feel their snowmobiling experience start to stagnate after several years of riding the same locations over and over. If you are in this situation, or are looking for a way to get the most out of your snowmobiling experience, here are a few suggestions that might help.
First, try exploring a new location. For those who live where it snows, it may be easy to keep going to the same familiar places year after year, but this can cause your experience to seem less exciting each time. Or if you are planning to go on vacation during the winter, research which destinations may have some good snowmobiling for you. Find a new location to explore, and you may find your sense of adventure return.
Next, try going on a snowmobiling tour. Especially if you are on vacation somewhere, snowmobile tours are a great way to find some of the better places to go without having to wander around alone for hours. Guided tours are also a great way to go at a casual pace to enjoy the scenery, without feeling like you are ruining others' high adventure.
For those who go snowmobiling for the adrenaline rush, try upping the intensity. If you have not tried getting air off jumps, or if you shy away from intense looking territory, it is time to try it out. Maybe try tagging along with friends or family who are more experienced, and try to keep up with them. Snowmobiling can become more fun if you allow yourself to go out of your comfort zone occasionally.
Finally, try mixing in some snowmobiling games with your usual activities. Bring some friends along and play snowmobile tag, or hide and seek. Try playing polo or Frisbee golf while you ride. There are many different things you can do to have fun while you ride, and most of them involve simply doing something out of the ordinary.
Snowmobiling can be an extreme sport, a method of adventure, or simply a fun or relaxing thing you do on vacation. Whether you have grown tired of snowmobiling, or are simply looking for a way to further your enjoyment, these suggestions may help you think of some new ways to better enjoy your snowmobiling experience.
