EQUIPE

Though we often hear about the benefits of team sports and the important character lessons acquired in the arena – there’s a lot to be said for individual activities and the development of personal responsibility. When it comes to your children and grand children, why bother debating the merits and simply get them out on a sled. Snowmobiling combines the very best of both genres and delivers it in a real-world environment that ups the ante with a heightened sense of consequence that forces us to recognize the magnitude of our behaviours.

“… important character lessons…”

There are no goal lines, appointed positions, nor scheduled events. We don’t fundraise, play politics, or adhere to the confines of uniforms nor mantra. Snowmobiling is all about the individual, and the effort we are willing to invest. From trail riding, to exhilarating “full bar” lake blasts, snow cross racing, boondocking, hill climbs, or ditch banging – your sense of satisfaction is determined only by you. Until you hook up with the “right” group of friends.

“… heightened sense of consequence…”

And you will, for we rarely, if ever ride alone. It’s a sport that requires the accompaniment of at least one friend. A “buddy system” that allows us to load trailers, help get unstuck, and hopefully keep our skill level “in check” before attempting any new maneuvers in especially tangly terrain.

.

“… rarely ride alone…”

.

Dedicated riders tend to attract a wider circle of friends, from which a core “team” is often created. Fellow riders who share the same passion, matching riding skills, and complimentary personalities. More than teammates, snowmobile buddies reflect your true sense of values, riding style and level of commitment to the sport. A hand picked “dream team” who perform and deliver within the parameters that all have accepted. No false expectations, just an opportunity to grow. Or perhaps just as importantly, learn when to retreat.

Who says there’s no “I” in “Team”?

There is when you’re properly “Equipe'd”
