You know the release of next year’s snowmobiles is coming soon when you start getting press releases like this: Ski-Doo has announced the dates of its 2019 tour showcasing its new snowmobiles to riders in the late winter/early spring, which will include demo rides at select events. FYI, there won’t be a multi-manufacturer Sneak Peek tour in the U.S. this year — each manufacturer will be showcasing their new snowmobiles for next winter, including their spring-order models, in different ways this year south of the border. In Canada, however, Sneak Peek stops are back for another year.
The Ski-Doo tour includes 14 stops in Canada and 23 in the U.S. (our favorite of which is in a Walmart parking lot!). Here’s the press release from Ski-Doo — and stay tuned into SnowGoer.com to see which models you’ll be seeing and potentially taking demo rides on this year.
Here’s the Ski-Doo press release:
