I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can always come to for information and for your snowmobiling enjoyment. I’ll add on to this page and I recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!



If you’re new to snowmobiling in the Adirondacks, the guide (click here) is your 101 crash course! Put my 30 years of snowmobiling experience to work for you.

I will give you tips and pointers for snowmobiling the Adirondacks, along with the toolbox of resources that I use to plan my rides. Selling for $9, my guide is an absolute bargain and comes with a 30 day “no questions asked” money back guarantee.


GoPro Hero 3+I have been using the GoPro HD Hero 2 since December 2011 with excellent results. The GoPro Hero 3+ takes things up to a new level with better performance, smaller size and 30% longer battery life.

Based on my experience with the HD Hero 2 and what friends have told me about the Hero 3+, I can safely recommend the Hero 3+ to record your snowmobiling fun so you can replay the good times endlessly through the summer. Click here to buy your GoPro Hero 3+ from Amazon.


tekvestThink of Tekvest as a helmet for your chest. I used to think that such a vest was only for professional racers and meat head wannabes until my son narrowly escaped a serious chest injury in a minor snowmobile accident a few years back.

Read my review on Tekvest with an open mind. It’s a small price to pay to protect your health in the event of a mishap. Don’t get caught wishing that you were wearing one. Click here to buy your Tekvest from Amazon.
