Wayne Roberts, manager of Roberts Sport Center in Malone, said sales of snowmobiles haven’t slowed down despite snowmelt.
“The sled season is still good out of the local area. The mountains and up in Canada have snow and attract sled owners ... No matter what, true snowmobilers will find snow.”
With an average price range from $8,000 to $10,000 for the Skidoo sleds Roberts sells, owners are careful to keep their machines tuned and in good repair, he said.
WATCHING FOR SNOW
Dumas said that while her coworkers think of going south in the winter to warm up, she and her family are just dreaming of another snowstorm.
“Snowmobile riders are excited when it snows but disappointed when it rains,” she said. “These are expensive toys, and it’s no fun when you can’t get out there and play with them.
“Bring on the snow.”
