And meet Brennan Boxall, who carries on his late father’s racing legacy; Blair Morgan, an injured athlete who has returned to racing in adaptive snow bike-cross; Jerry Bens, who records his ATVing adventures on YouTuibe; and Patrick Ryan, who crossed Newfoundland by ATV and tells us all about it on his blog.
Welcome to our Trail Map issue, in which avid snowmobilers can search out the sweet spots in Western Canada. Plus, we present a guide to the 2017-2018 snow bike kits. As well, we offer a feature story on Danny Roberts, the man behind Boosted Imagery, and showcase one of his fabulous photos. Our cover story looks at three dads and how they balance their passion for snowmobiling with the demands of family life. Safety tips and ATVing adventures are found in this issue as well. Finally, read all about Cain’s Quest, a snowmobile endurance race that starts in Labrador City, Newfoundland, and the Teen Challenge Sled for Eternity events coming up in British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario.
In this issue, we prove that photos really are worth a thousand words as we present reader-submitted photos to highlight our snowmobiling destinations. Also take a look at the finalists in our Sled Wrap Contest, and peruse our 2017 Rider’s Choice Awards list. Plus we have a great story on a young quadder who has become a social media sensation.

SnoRiders journeys back in time to see how snowmobiling has shaped Canada during its 150 years. What could be more Canadian than making the most out of our long winters? We also present the history of snowmobiles and snow bikes in “Carving a timeline.”
