We don’t mind winter in the Peace Country… we love it! And it is approaching quickly. So if you are a local or an adventurer from afar looking for some winter excitement, you’ll want to check out snoriderswest.com. They’re a great source of information about destinations, trails, where to buy gear and tips of all sorts. Plus some awesome sledding pictures!
If you’re not a snow rider, maybe you’ll find this interesting: a Ski-doo is a snowmobile and definitely a skidoo, and a skidoo is a snowmobile but not necessarily a Ski-doo. Likewise, a snowmobile doesn’t have to be a Ski-doo, but it might be called a skidoo!
The snowmobile is the machine. A Ski-doo is a brand name for a snowmobile made by the specific company, but, like Kleenex or Band-Aid, the name has become generic and is now used to mean the same thing as snowmobile. But lots of people just go sledding (a sled is different from a toboggan but similar to a sledge although quite different from a sleigh).
Hey! We just love winter, so the terminology isn’t that important. Go outside and play this snow season!
