Snowmobiling is a very common winter sport in the United States, especially in our part of rural Pennsylvania. It is an enjoyable way to get outside in cold weather and can be a way for families to spend time together. As stated on SnowMobile.org, "Historically individuals who snowmobile at a young age continue to snowmobile with their parents throughout their lives, sharing great experiences as a family. In many winter regions, snowmobiling is simply the main form of winter outdoor recreation and in some cases the main method of transportation available."
