No Contest: Turbo Polaris vs. ALPHA ONE

3/26/2018 3:12:00 PM

This is about as hot-diggity as it gets. Rob Kincaid and Dave McClure face off a Polaris 800 RMK with 7 lbs. of turbo boost against a bone-stock Arctic Cat M 8000 ALPHA ONE.

The verdict: the ALPHA ONE's remarkable traction advantage makes added horsepower a bit...irrelevant.

2018 Prowler PRO from Textron Off Road. Photo by

While the stunning Wildcat XX might have grabbed the biggest headlines at the recent Arctic Cat-Textron Off Road dealer meeting in Las Vegas, it was another side-by-side that made the quietest (and perhaps most profound) impact.

I'm referring to the soon-to-be-released 2018 Prower Pro, a newly conceived utility side-by-side that emphasizes smoothness, quietness, quality and customizability.

Click for some info and pix.

What Do You Wish For on an Arctic Cat Snowmobile?

2/23/2018 4:36:00 PM

What do you want on a new Arctic Cat snowmobile?

In two days Arctic Cat will take the wraps off its 2019 model line of snowmobiles.

Some Arctic Cat fans will be shock-and-awed.

Others will visit their dealer to lay down some cash.

And some will be disappointed. It happens every year.

It's understandable: Each of us has an idea in our minds what the next Arctic Cat snowmobile needs to offer US. We have high expectations. And if Cat doesn't deliver, we're disappointed.

So I want this post to be a place where YOU can tell Arctic Cat EXACTLY what you want on the next (or future) model line.

Click to see my wish list.

Wadena County Trail Breakers 50th Celebration

2/22/2018 9:57:00 AM

Wadena County Trailbreakers Snowmobile Club

Last month I had the great pleasure to spend a couple hours with members of the Wadena County Trail Breakers snowmobile club during their 50th Anniversary celebration.

It reminded me of how much our sport relies on the unselfish dedication of people who largely go unheralded, but without whom this sport ceases to exist as we know it.

Snow Report for Feb. 20, 2018

2/20/2018 11:34:00 AM

Snow Depth report for 2-20-18

Winter has been hit-or-miss throughout much of the snowbelt this season, but it seems to have truly arrived in several areas over the past few days (with more on the way).

I was in the St. Germain/Eagle River area of Wisconsin over the weekend, and I've NEVER seen so many snowmobilers in one place. This despite less-than-perfect conditions.

If there isn't riding in your backyard, chances are it's only a few hours (or less) away.
