Types Of Snowmobiles
Not everyone looking for a snowmobile for sale in Michigan wants it for the same reason, so there are many types to choose from!
- Mountain Snowmobiles – although these are probably designed for conditions out west, with the horsepower to climb steep hills, and the ability to handle deep power snow where you are carving the trail, they might be exactly what you want right here in Michigan too! These snowmobiles have longer tracks and bigger lugs, to help them handle deep snow, and they are powerful machines.
- Performance Snowmobiles – these machines are designed for speed, and for endurance in difficult terrain. They are light weight, with high performance engines, and advanced suspension systems that have been developed through racing programs. While they sometimes sacrifice frills in favor of performance, if your goal is to be the first rider across the lake, or if you’re considering taking your sled over jumps, this sled is optimized for you!
- Crossover Snowmobiles – these snowmobiles blend the best of Mountain and Performance sleds into a truly awesome combination that will let you tear up the trails at home, but also travel out west to the deep powder bowls when it’s time for a vacation in the Rockies. They are at home on and off-trail.
- Touring Snowmobiles – these snowmobiles are designed for comfort, and the ability to ride for hours and hours on Michigan’s network of groomed snowmobile trails. They are the Cadillac of snow machines. Their suspensions are tuned to give you a smooth ride, with whatever creature comforts you desire. You don’t have to sacrifice power and speed if you choose a Touring snowmobile – they come in a broad spectrum of engine sizes. Planning on having two riders on the same sled? Looking for seats with backrests? Want a larger windshield to cut down on wind? Prefer rear-view mirrors on your sled? If comfortable seats, a smooth ride, room for two riders, and convenience features important to you, a Touring Snowmobile may be a perfect match.
- Trail Snowmobiles – these snowmobiles are a blend of Performance and Touring types, for the rider who will be on the trails for a hours at a time, but would prefer better handling and faster acceleration over the sorts of additional comforts that a long-distance rider might desire. Trail snowmobile suspensions are designed to provide better performance on rugged terrain, if groomed trails aren’t always on the agenda. If the Touring sled was the Cadillac of snowmobiles, this might be the Jeep.
- Utility Snowmobiles – these snowmobiles are work horses. If you need to pull or carry heavy loads, or keep moving forward when the trail runs out and conditions get tough, this heavy duty snowmobile may be the machine for you. Utility sleds are wide, heavy snowmobiles, designed to get the job done, even when conditions are a challenge. They are even capable of towing the broken-down sled of a fellow rider, should the worst happen.
- Youth Snowmobiles – these snowmobiles are designed for new riders, or for youthful riders, with a bit less power, additional safety features such as speed governors and automatic shut offs if the rider falls off the sled. The controls are streamlined, to keep things as simple for the operator as possible. They are not only less expensive to buy, they are also less expensive to operate, and safer as well. If you have a new rider in your family, this may be the perfect machine for them.
First time buyers looking at snowmobiles for sale in Michigan might find all of these combinations a bit daunting, but as they begin to ride themselves, they’ll enjoy the sport much more on a sled that truly fits them and their unique blend of riding needs.
Come and talk to the experienced riders at Holiday Powersports, and we will help you make the right snowmobile choice the first time!
Michigan Snowmobile Trails
Michigan has one of the most extensive networks of snowmobile trails in the United States. The network can fluctuate slightly from year to year, but for the 2010-2011 season there were:
- 6407 miles of designated trails
- 150 grooming machines actively being used to maintain those trails
- 65 sponsors, providing grants to keep these trails open and groomed
The network includes Michigan State Forests (25%), National Forests (20%), other public lands (5%), and generous amounts of private land (50%), where permissions have been granted to the public for the trail right-of-way. Many of these trails are interconnected, allowing Michigan snowmobilers to take different routes and reach different destinations, ride after ride.

Getting Help With Your Snowmobile Purchase
Buying a snowmobile is easy, but buying the right snowmobile requires a lot more expertise. If you visit us at Holiday Powersports, our snowmobile experts will want to ask you a number of questions first, to help zero in on the types, makes, and models that would serve you well. Questions like:
- Will the snowmobile be used by new riders or by youth, or primarily by experienced adult riders?
- Will you be riding your snowmobile solo, or do you need to have a passenger?
- Will you be sticking to the groomed trails, or taking your snowmobile to more difficult trails, or maybe going off-trail?
- Will you be taking extended trips on the snowmobile, or just using it for a few hours at a time?
- Will you need the flexibility to take your snowmobile to the mountains, to ride in deep powder or at high elevations?
- Will you be racing your snowmobile?
- Will you be taking your snowmobile over jumps?
- Will you be using your snowmobile to carry heavy loads, or to pull sleds or toboggans?
- Do you prefer a 4-stroke or a 2-stroke engine?
- How much power do you need?
- How important is wind protection to you?
- How important is the noise level of the engine to you?
- How important is nimble maneuverability, versus stability?
- How important is gas mileage to you?
- How much comfort are you looking for, versus performance?
- Which additional features are important to you? (Reverse gear? Electric start? Heated seat? Gauges? 12-volt Outlet? Adjustable Handlebars? Etc.)
- What is your purchasing budget?
- What is your maintenance budget?
- If you want financing, do you have that already arranged yourself, or would you like Holiday Powersports to help you with that?
These and other questions will help them get you into the right class of snowmobile first, and then zero in on the specific makes and models that would suit you well. Then you can sit on those machines, and get your hands on the controls.
In reality, today’s snowmobiles are engineered extremely well, and most people would be happy with a number of different sleds. We can help you narrow the choices down, and then you can listen to your heart for the “wow” factor that makes the final choice clear!
