The Snowmobiling Life, In Photos

Snowmobiling is fun. Snowmobiling is adventurous. And, every now and then, snowmobiling is frustrating – in a fun, adventurous way!

Since its relaunch in 1990, every issue of Snow Goer has dedicated at least one page to the fun and follies of our great sport with the much-loved What’s Hot/What’s Not section. The section is driven entirely by readers — who submit their photos of the snowmobiling life, whether it’s a scenic view, a fun family outing, a ski-lifting blast or an off-season dream of riding. We’ve had cool pictures featuring family pets on snowmobiles, sled-dedicated weddings, powder carving, trailside wildlife, winter jubilation and much, much more. And, once we think we’ve “seen it all,” a new reader image surprises us!

The images below are from the October 2019 issue of Snow Goer. Once again, we’re seeking your help to keep the Hot/Not section rolling. Send us some of your snowmobile-related pictures from recent years, then wait to see yourself in living color on the pages of snowmobiling’s most popular magazine!

Please limit submissions to two photos, and include your name and hometown with the submission. Send the photo as an attachment, and please note that low resolution or somewhat out-of-focus images won’t reprint well in magazines — so send us only your best! Email your pictures to

Now, here are the images from our season-premier issue last year.
