SNOWMOBILE INFORMATION:

Here are some snowmobile stats that we received from the American Council of Snowmobile Associations that they received from the ISMA for the 2021/2022 season.

130,644 NEW snowmobiles were sold worldwide.  There are 1.2 MILLION registered snowmobiles in the USA. Snowmobilers raised over $3 MILLION for national charities. Snowmobiling generates over $30 BILLION worth of economic activity in North America. Snowmobilers join with other outdoor recreation in generating $689 BILLION worth of economic activity in the USA.

That’s pretty impressive folks….thanks for all you do in support of our recreational sports !!!
