Start Your Snowmobile Engines


K2's Ophelia Young reports, oyoung@k2tv.com:  

It's time to start your engines...your snowmobile engines.  

The industry is in great competition to design the most fun yet environmental snowmobile.  New models this season feature better fuel-efficiency, lower emissions, and are quieter.  They are also designed to handle better in the snow, maneuvering trees more nimbly.  

The snowmobile is growing up, but while it's seeing big changes, it's price tags are not.  A local store owner says he's only seen prices rise a couple hundred dollars.  They now sell anywhere from seven to 12 thousand dollars.
