ArcticInsider Exclusive: New Year's Resolutions

(1/4/2019)

The ArcticInsider program for new snowmobile vitality.

It's a New Year, with new beginnings and new resolutions.

For ArcticInsiders and others who live life at full-tilt ridiculousness, there's never been a better time to approach snowmobiling with a new sense of purpose.

And to achieve true Next Level purposeness, I STRONGLY suggest a solid pre-ride routine of stretching, yoga and calisthenics.

Just 45-60 minutes will help get your mind and body into a new kind of fitness.

It’s the new thing for 2019.

Note from Erik in Sweden: May the Snow Be With You

(1/1/2019)

May the snow be with you, from Erik J. in Sweden.

Here's a nice note I received from my friend Erik J. from Sweden, about a nice start to his new Arctic Cats and the winter of 2019. Enjoy.

 

We are hanging in our winter house for winter holiday and have started to break in the new 2019 mountain cat.

Days are short, with daylight for 3 hours and we are a bit low on snow. Ice skratchers down. River ice and forest roads keep us rolling.

Snow Report for Dec. 3, 2018

(12/3/2018)

Snow report 12-3-18. Snowmobile on an Arctic Cat!

It seems like winter is on cue this year, at least for much of North America.

I know weather is local, and that what's on the ground at your house might not be the same at mine. That said, I'm PUMPED that I live in a band that delivered about 5 inches on Saturday night, and that there are tracks in yards and ditches near me.

CLICK HERE for more detailed information at NOAA.

Product Spotlight: New Arctic Cat Authority Goggle

(11/20/2018)

Arctic Cat Authority Goggle

Think all goggles are the same? Think again.

Like snowmobiles, goggles are on a "continuous improvement" cycle as manufacturers test, tweak and improve the product for better optics, comfort, fit (especially in modern helmets) and reduced fogging.

The new Authority Goggle from Arctic Cat is the latest example.

Happy 73rd Birthday C.J. Ramstad (and thanks for the memories))

(11/14/2018)

C.J. Ramstad, snowmobile journalist in heaven.

It's been 11 years since legendary snowmobile journalist CJ Ramstad and his son J.J. died in a tragic automobile crash.

Today would have been CJ's 73rd birthday. I’m remembering his life by sharing this awesome column he wrote in his Letter From Pops column for the November 1982 edition of Snowmobile magazine.

Letter From Pops and his book The Collected Works of Pappy were mainstays of his early career, as well as entertaining reading for snowmobilers all over the world.

I grew up reading this stuff and it's still very dear to my heart.

Happy Birthday CJ. And thanks for the gifts you gave us.
