The Polaris “Winning Riders” program is once again contributing to state and provincial snowmobile organizations across North America.

The program is designed to generate support for state and provincial association. This is the 11th consecutive year the program has been running, which provides funds for snowmobile associations proportionate to the number of new Polaris snowmobiles sold within each state and province.

Polaris is making contributions to snowmobile associations in 12 Canadian provinces and territories and 25 states in the United States.

Polaris also announced it is extending the Winning Riders program through the 2015-16 sales season, meaning contributions will be made next year based on retail sales of new Polaris snowmobiles between April 1, 2015, and March 31, 2016.

“The passion for snowmobiling is running strong across the North American snowbelt,” says Chris Wolf, VP of Polaris Snowmobiles. “We see real benefits in supporting the associations that coordinate activities of snowmobile clubs and help develop great riding opportunities.”

Projects funded by Winning Riders donations in recent years have included membership drives, trail and grooming programs, legislative efforts, tourism promotion and more.
