In this issue, our cover story focuses on Scott Kjarsgaard, one of the driving forces behind the quest to turn Cataract Creek, near Calgary, Alberta, into a world-class snowmobile trail system. We also offer some personal, and hair-raising, stories on surviving snowmobile accidents, along with tips to stay safe. And we talk to Laura Rasmussen, the first woman to solo ride an ATV in every province across Canada.
