I thought it would be a good idea if everyone said hi when they join up.

My name is Glenn Healey and have been an avid snowmobiler since I was 10 years old. I currently live in Utopia,Ontario which is just outside of Barrie. I am from the Peterborough,Ontario area and was involve in organized snowmobiling in that area. We had a cottage on Chandos Lake in Apsley and I was fortunate enough to be the President of the Paudash TrailBlazers Snowmobile Club.
I am currently doing some volunteer work with the Alliston and District Snowmobile Club.
I am also involved in the Canadian Motorcycle Cruisers Riding Club as the 1st Officer of the Barrie Chapter.

Hi I have been snowmobiling for the about 15 years. Since it started I have been working on Snowmobiler Television, and while everyone may think that I do nothing but ride all the time, the fact is we have very little free ride time. Most times when I am riding there is a back pack full of gear with me. I love nothing better then to capture on camera, other people having a great ride. See you on the trails.

hey, what a great forum! I've been active on other sled forums and this is just a great idea!

I love the STV show and am always looking to get out for a good ride with good people!

I'm 28, and ride a mild custom 04 rev 800 out of Haliburton mainly and live in Toronto.

we should do a ride out of Haliburton!!!!!! I'd be happy to help set something up!

the trails are great this year and with more snow coming it should be an excellent season

Hello to everyone cheers

The Alliston (www.adsc.ca) trails are home for me. I volunteer with the club as much as I can, currently I am the club secretary. I can be seen on those trails on my Switchback all the time. Wave if you see me going by.
I am always up for a good ride, especially those long distance ones. I really like going to other districts and meeting other volunteers at their clubhouses.

Hi, my names Jordan Healey, and I live in Utopia. I have been riding right since I was able to get my snowmobile licence, which makes that 6 awesome riding seasons ago. Ive owned 3 sleds so far. First was a 1982 yamaha excell III 340, then a 1993 Formula Plus 580, and for the past 3 seasons I've had a 2002 MXZ 600 which as of last season won the Royal Treament and now looks as well as rides amazingly. I love snowmobiling and I think this site is a great idea. I'm hoping that I can meet a few more people to ride with this season and if anyone needs someone to ride with this winter, just give me a shout.

Hello all. My name is Dave and I usually ride from the garage in Pefferlaw. I am a member of the Heart of Ontario and Port Perry clubs. As well, I am a registered Trail Patrol member for the Heart of Ontario SC.

I also do a number of trailer based rides to wherever there is snow. Some of the members on here may recognize my name from the OntarioConditions.com forum.

I am hoping to get in a couple of week trips somewhere north this year but I don't have any firm plans or riding groups decided yet.

I haven't tried any 'saddle bag' type trips yet but expect to cut my teeth on a couple of those this winter as well.

Hope to meet some of you for a ride.

I usually ride myself as I don’t like to stop and I don’t just putt along. No, I’m not a wacko on the trail.

However – I’m 60 and my wife is getting a little nervous and highly recommends I travel with someone – huh…ya – well maybe.

I raced factory oval sleds back in the mid 70’s and did well – but went on an engine sabbatical for about 2 + decades – so I’m making up lost time. We came back in 99/00 and did a little snocross but the sled was not competitive. Trail riding since then. What – vintage snocross - I’m ready…

We are moving to Muskoka (I thought for 08 … damm..) near Port Carling – so I guess I will still have to lug the sled from down here in the banana belt (OMG….they play golf all winter here) to first snow. Rolling Eyes

I like the uniqueness of all sled brands.

Just wanted to say hello from Leduc, Alberta. I have been snowmobiling for about 12yrs. Just got serious about it in 05. Went to Valemount, BC. I was hooked in by the mountain riding. Bought an 05 M7Ltd. I have been thinking about upgrading to the new M1000. More power.

Hello. My name is Barry Smith and I am now a 'sled head' and so is my wife. I first started riding at 6 mths old and have been hooked ever since. When I was living in the city and working all the time - never had much time for a sled. It all changed last December 9,2007 when I puchased my first sled. I now live in the county (the sled trail is 700 meters) from my front door and I live on the trails all winter. Anybody from the area or coming to the area looking a fellow rider, let me know. I have been trying to help put my local club - but can't get any responce from them. It is kind of a let down - what a great sport (hobby) and the clubs are always looking for help and when you try to help - nobody returns your phone calls or emails! Keep sleddin' and like I said if in Distrcit 5 near Stratford give me a call.

This year I am reborn to the snow. The last machine I owned was a 79 9500 Blizzard plus which I had out of the box in my late teens. When I went into the military it was the first thing to go. That was almost 30 yrs ago. Why am I getting back into it ? Good question. I think I have to prove to myself I still have it in me. My better half has decided to join in. This will be her first season ever and she is really looking forward to it. I have also been getting some motivation from one of the ugliest snowmobilers I have ever saw on a beat up 2000 mxz lol!

I'm pretty sure I know who that ugly guy on the 2000 mxz is seeing as his sled is in a million pieces in my garage. He is learning about snowmobiles the hard way, at least he will know every little nook and cranny about his sled.
