SnoDeo Weekend 2012

The kick off of the sledding season starts this weekend with Snodeo and yes it will be going on even with the lack of snow.  However I am sure the demo rides have been put on hold.  But the Annual 120cc & Kitty-Cat Races are on, starting at Noon on Saturday.  As you'll see in the video we had a great start going and then we lost it all.  On the bright side we are getting some frost in the ground.  So when it does start snowing it won't take long for it to pile up and yes it will snow.

  4. Hi Steve.

    Great job again.. Wish I could be there for Snodeo but I have to work. I'm saving the days off from work for when we have snow. Keep up the good work and good snowmobile spirit.

    1. This season is off to a better start than last year. Where have you been? What weather forecast have you been looking at? It shows a steady decrease in temps. They are going to change overnight. Knock on wood!

    1. Hi ACZ1turbo,

      Good eye! Yes, I installed an upgrade to the cam system at the info center and was playing around with it when you saw it pointed at Waters Edge. I'm not sure if I'm happy with it yet. But it is for sure an upgrade from the system that was being used.

    2. You are right,it better happen soon or its over. The outlook is not good. Old Forge has got problems, 2 dept. that are spending money and going in the hole. The town needs to make some changes.

  22. Ive been reading some longer range stuff as well. Polar vortex and yada yada...Seems like there will be nothing to ride on in OF this month. If this continues I'm gonna consider packing it in for good...too damm expensive and too frustrating to say the least.

    1. Try Being in the Snowmobile Service and Sales Side of Things.. What was selling the past 2 months was for a loss or break even to clean up last years inventory.. Nobody needs a fresh service cause they didnt ride or ride enough to wear it down in a few hundred miles at best..

      Now we got All the dealer doing a DUMP A SALE ON THE WEB!!

  23. Winter is coming! Colder temps after today and the snow will follow. I would rather have a slower start and then have Old Man Winter pound us mid/late December and ride until March. Watch out for that December 20th snow storm. That's my prediction. Weatherman out...
