Haslett, MI, JAN­UARY 16, 2015: The Snow­mo­bile Man­u­fac­tur­ers through ISMA are ex­cited to part­ner with the or­ga­nized snow­mo­bil­ing com­mu­nity and the many snow­mo­bile as­so­ci­a­tions and clubs who sup­port snow­mo­bil­ing through­out North Amer­ica. The unique part­ner­ship be­tween the snow­mo­bile man­u­fac­tur­ers and the snow­mo­bile com­mu­nity is now over24001y5ears old and has grown since the in­cep­tion of the Go Snow­mo­bil­ing pro­mo­tion 6 years ago.

The Cam­paign is de­signed to en­cour­age the as­so­ci­a­tions to work with their lo­cal snow­mo­bile clubs, Vis­i­tors and Con­ven­tion Bu­reaus, and other in­ter­ested par­ties in de­vel­op­ing and hold­ing snow­mo­bile demon­stra­tion rides this win­ter.

The snow­mo­bile rid­ing events may be held any time be­tween Jan­uary 1 – March 31, 2015. The con­test en­cour­ages the de­vel­op­ment and ex­pan­sion of re­la­tion­ships that clubs and as­so­ci­a­tions have with Vis­i­tors and Con­ven­tion Bu­reaus, the me­dia, and the re­lated snow­mo­bile busi­nesses: deal­ers, res­tau­rants, gas sta­tions, banks, re­sorts, etc..

Re­search shows us that many in­di­vid­u­als who do not presently snow­mo­bile are very in­ter­ested in “giv­ing it a try.” Over 80% of all cit­i­zens look very fa­vor­ably to­ward a fun snow­mo­bil­ing win­ter ex­pe­ri­ence. Our re­search firm, in­ter­view­ing thou­sands of non-snow­mo­bil­ers across North Amer­ica, dis­cov­ered that when asked, non­snow­mo­bil­ers will rate their in­ter­est in go­ing snow­mo­bil­ing on a scale of 1 – 10 as high as a “9” rat­ing. Those of us who have par­tic­i­pated in tak­ing friends snow­mo­bil­ing know there are “miles of smiles” from those that we in­vite to join us and a good time is had by all. Very of­ten our snow­mo­bil­ing fam­ily ex­pands as new rid­ers pur­chase their first new or used snow­mo­biles as a re­sult of our in­vi­ta­tion to try snow­mo­bil­ing for their own fam­ily fun in the win­ter.

We en­cour­age all clubs and as­so­ci­a­tions to par­tic­i­pate in this fun and prof­itable con­test. We en­cour­age snow­mo­bil­ers to wel­come non-snow­mo­bil­ers to en­joy snow­mo­bil­ing and the great scenery, friend­ship, and fun that we all en­joy dur­ing the win­ter months.

All snow­mo­bile clubs are en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate in the Take a Friend Snow­mo­bile events and sup­port their state or pro­vin­cial snow­mo­bile as­so­ci­a­tion in help­ing make their or­ga­ni­za­tions grow and pros­per. An Ac­tion Man­ual con­tain­ing some great ideas on hold­ing a ride event can be found on the www.GoSnow­mo­bil­ web­site. All par­tic­i­pants are wel­come and en­cour­aged to post pho­tos of their events on our www.Face­ GoSnow­mo­bil­ing Face­book page along with some brief writ­ten points telling us some de­tails about the ride.

Our Face­book page is now close to 7000 likes and is grow­ing rapidly. Come join us!
