    Snowmobiles and ATV’s are commonly refered to as toys. Toys don’t have 60-100 horsepower engines. They are dangerous only in the hands of imature, fearless juvinile like people, or in the hands of an imapaired person. You said it best Spider snowmobiling isn’t a good sport for everyone. The machines are not dangerous but the operator may be.

      You are an idiot, get the facts before posting some stupid comment like this. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  3. Kyle says:

    I am shocked at your comments. Accidents happen. You don’t know the details of the crash, you are only assuming things.

  4. Maverick says:

    So your saying a 50-year old man going 60 mph on a snowmobile is immature?These things are made to have fun on not putz around on. Try learning how to spell before commenting on something you have no idea about.

    How exactly is the snowmobile the problem here?? The rider OPERATES the snowmobile and if the rider is not able to control the sled then they need a smaller one they are more capable of handling! I’ve been riding snowmobiles since I was a kid on every terrain out there including mountains and jumping and have never been seriously injured. Anyone who chooses to operate a snowmobile must know what the sled can do, what they can handle and what the area is in which they are riding. Any recreational machine we have available to us IS A TOY and they are made to have fun on! This was an accident so don’t blame the sled!

    If this had been a accident involving a Gun there whould be a ton of people calling for a ban and removal of all guns – why should it be different for a snowmobile – Where are all those anti gun haters on this issue?????

    My heart and prayers go out to his family. This is a tragedy. I wish people would have common sense when posting comments because his friends and family are reading them and are in extreme pain over the loss of a loved one. Please do not make their pain worse by saying things you do not know. This is something they will never get over and I pray for them to find peace and love.
