    Polaris RMK 408 Rosseau

    Jeff Pelowski, mayor of Roseau, Minn., has declared April 8 as Polaris RMK Day. The day’s date (4/08) reflects the 408-pound dry weight of the new 2016 Polaris 800 Pro-RMK 155, which is built at Polaris’ manufacturing facility in Roseau.

    “Roseau is the proud Birthplace of Polaris and home to the company’s snowmobile engineering and production facility,” Pelowski said. “April 4 – 4/08 – is the ideal day to celebrate the industry-leading innovation and amazingly light weight of the new PRO-RMK model that was developed by the Polaris staff right here in Roseau.”

      Polaris racers won 10 Pro classes – including every Stock and Modified class – and all three King of the Hill titles at the RMSHA Pine Creek Hillclimb on March 7-8 in Pinedale, Wyo.

      Polaris racers used this Rocky Mountain States Hillclimb Assn. event as a strong final tune-up prior to the season’s premier event, the Jackson Hole [WY] World Championship Snowmobile Hillclimb, March 26-29.

        Ski-Doo Limiter Strap

        BRP has developed a quick way to change the handling of a Ski-Doo mountain snowmobile with the flip of a lever. Riders can choose more or less chassis transfer to keep their skis higher or lower depending on snow conditions, terrain or riding style.

        The tMotion Adjustable Limiter Strap’s slim design fits tightly along the running board without intruding on the rider’s feet. It uses a unique spring-loaded cam to shorten or lengthen the limiter strap, which allows the lever to be very compact because it doesn’t directly move the strap. The net effect between short and long positions is significant; equal to two hole positions on a conventional limiter strap adjustment, letting a rider tune their snowmobile’s handling effortlessly.

          USXC Warroad 100

          The 2014-15 USXC season is officially over with the conclusion of the Seven Clans Casino Warroad 100.

          Zach Herfindahl and his ZR put on a cross country clinic as he showed the competitors he is the man to beat. Zach not only won the Pro Stock final, he ran off and left them. Aaron Christensen came down from Canada and placed second in Pro Stock and Pro Open on his Polaris AXYS and was the only driver to seriously challenge Herfindahl. Wes Selby topped off an incredible season with a third place finish in Pro Stock and Pro Open.

            Top 10 Things New Mountain Riders Should Know

            Last month, I traveled from Ontario, Canada to the Western United States to embark on an epic snowmobile adventure. The primary focus of this trip was to highlight the differences between trail riding in the midwest and mountain riding in the western mountains, while also promoting avalanche awareness and backcountry safety.

            Here is a list of 10 things I learned that are essential for the beginner rider to know when giving mountain riding a try.
