There’s No Business Like Snow Business for Snowmobile Shops
"The 'white gold' on the ground, I guess you could call it right now, really gets everyone's mind going." - Tyler Clark
At Extreme Power Sports in Gaylord, they say once the snow started falling, their phones started ringing. Between new sales and maintenance and tune-ups for longtime customers, it’s looking like a busy start to the season.
“We’ve got people calling left and right trying to get their snowmobiles in for maintenance to get them out for the winter season. And then all of our new sleds coming in that we have to prep right now. So it’s going pretty strong right now,” Tyler Clark says.
They say you can’t hit the trails until firearm deer hunting season is over, but don’t wait until the last minute to get ready. If you can come in now instead of waiting, you’ll be better off.
“You can come in and get your gear. I would definitely recommend getting your oil and maintenance stuff for your sleds before it’s too late, before we run out of things,” Clark says. “It’s a good idea to get it now because you really can’t ride trails now until the first of December with it being rifle season for deer right now.”
And he says they aren’t seeing as much of an impact from supply chain shortages – so far – but that could change. That’s another reason to get in now before the trails open Dec. 1.
