For true winter sports enthusiasts, the combination of snow and cold is actually a blessing. The longer it stays cold, the longer the snow remains for snowmobilers, skiers and the like. And one thing all of us do when there are temperature extremes is look back over our shoulders toward past winters to see if we've ever experienced something like this before. In one sense, there's nothing new under the sun. But some things do change with time... like the snowmobiles we ride.

AMSOIL had a strong presence in the oval racing circuit with racers like Bobby Donahue and Tim Bender of Team Aaen. Team manager Olav Aaen, who began his career in snowmobiling in 1970, was eventually inducted in the Snowmobile Hall of Fame.

One such memory we will be giving soon is a four-day, three night all expenses paid trip to Montana in the Big Sky Sweepstakes. You can read the details here
