This feeling is shared by so many of us that will count the days until the snowmobile season starts once again in Vermont. That first ride of the season feeling is one that keeps us coming back every year. A passion and love for winter and the sport that is commonly shared among us. Regardless of who you might have voted for in the presidential election, or how we view current events, we all agree on one thing for sure: We love snowmobiling and the joy that snow-covered trails bring us. These are a few stories from my fellow VAST members from abound the Northeast and “Why We Snowmobile.” Why I Snowmobile By William Thomas Sr. and Fellow Snowmobilers About The Author: Loving Vermont and snowmobiling has been a 17-year passion for me. I had no idea when I started snowmobiling that I would log thousands of miles in eight different states. We started out with our first snowmobile, a 1994 Puma, being a surprise present for my wife that now has turned into a way of life not only for me, but also for my entire family, including our dog Teddy. So many of us welcome the coming season with open arms and embrace the thought of our first snowstorm. “Why I Snowmobile” is an easy question for so many to answer and, with the help of my fellow snowmobilers, we enjoyed doing so and look forward to more stories from fellow V AST members in upcoming issues. - William Thomas Sr.
