A quarter-century ago, the team from Snow Goer, Snow Week, Snowmobile and Snowmobile Business magazines tried its hand at TV with a regional snowmobile show called Snow Goer Television.Typically aired on Saturday mornings on broadcast channels in select markets, it aimed to spread the good message about snowmobiling.
Frankly, none of our staff were very good at being on-camera hosts – despite the tireless work by Rick and Deb from Dobson Video Productions to somehow make us look and sound good (talk about putting earrings on a sow!). But we had fun and hopefully entertained a few people along the way (OK, maybe only Phil entertained people).
Here’s a look at the second episode from the Fall 1996 season, featuring coverage some new 1997 Ski-Doo MXZ 670 and Polaris 600 Indy XCR, a spotlight on riding in Northern Minnesota, a tech tip, a focus on Kitty Cat racing and more. It even features some of the old snowmobile-related commercials from that era. That episode is posted below; click here to see Episode One from the same season.
