    The United States Air Force has returned as the official Armed Forces sponsor of the 2014-15 AMSOIL Championship Snocross series.

    Beginning with the AMSOIL DOMINATOR race at the Nov. 28 season-opener in Duluth, Minn., and running seven more weekends throughout the winter months before culminating in March at Wisconsin’s famed Grand Geneva Resort, the U.S. Air Force will again engage snocross fans at each and every tour stop with hands-on activation generated to highlight the connection between the sport of snocross and Air Force’s platform of science, technology and engineering.

          Ontario Snowmobile Trails

          The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs is inviting first timers and former snowmobilers to take OFSC trails for a test drive on Family Day weekend. Almost 11,000 people took advantage of the same promotion last year.

          In cooperation with the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO), the OFSC is celebrating Ontario’s only mid-winter statutory holiday long weekend with the return of the 2014 no cost “Try Our Trails” Permit to encourage more people to get outdoors and enjoy winter by going snowmobiling on OFSC trails. This permit is available without payment from those who pre‐register online and is valid only from 12:01 AM Saturday, February 15 until 11:59 PM on Monday, February 17, 2014.

            Canadian Stealth Snowmobile

            In what has to be the most Canadian story of the year, the Canadian Press is reporting that the Canadian military has been secretly testing a $620,000 stealth snowmobile.

            We first heard about this project two years ago when Canadian Department of Defence posted a public tender for a hybrid-electric snowmobile (you can read about that here). According to the tender, the stealth snowmobile required a range of at least 15 kilometers (about nine miles) at an average speed of 20 km/h (12 mph) when in quiet mode. The tender also stated that the stealth snowmobile must have the ability to switch to silent mode easily and quickly with minimal tools. CrossChasm Technologies from Waterloo, Ont. put together the winning bid and built the prototype.
