OEM sneak peek in progress
The four snowmobile manufacturers are working together this spring to show off the lineups you’ll see on the trails and mountains next winter.
The 2010 Manufacturers’ Sneak Peek is a six-week tour that Arctic Cat, Polaris, Ski-Doo and Yamaha are taking across the Snowbelt. New models include the agile Sno Pro 500, the 600 Rush, the GSX SE with the air-control rear suspension and lightened-up FX Nytro MTX mountain sleds.
The tour visits select cities in the West, Midwest, East and parts of Canada. For locations and dates, visit www.snowsneakpeek.com.
