Snowmobiling season is just around the corner. Snowmobile customers aren’t the only ones excited about the upcoming season—powersports store owners, sales staff and others within the industry are equally stoked about playing in the pow this winter. To help get you pumped for the forthcoming frost, we asked snowmobile dealers across Western Canada about their most popular snowmobiles and what trends they see coming on the horizon. Here’s what they had to say about Polaris.


Tate Jeffery is general manager of Cycle Works West in Acheson, Alberta.

What is your most popular/best-selling snowmobile?

By far the Polaris Axys 850.

Why do you think that is?

It’s the best mountain sled out there. It’s the lightest and easiest to manoeuvre. It’s got the power—it’s got everything. The last couple of years I wouldn’t be able to say that but the new 850 certainly has everything everybody’s looking for.

What is your most popular/best-selling snowmobile?

Polaris RMK 850.

Why do you think that is?

Polaris has been one of the leaders in snowmobiling for years. The 850 was new for last year. It puts out incredible power. It’s extremely light weight. You can order it in whatever colour scheme you want. You can really personalize the machine. They make an incredible mountain machine.
