MEET STEVEN MARLENEE
The majority of the snowmobile community is
quite familiar with their “True Enthusiast”
Steven Marlenee. When not working as a
Vice President for an energy-centered
construction company, the husband and
father of a newborn somehow finds the time
to tirelessly support the sport he loves -
What makes it all so remarkable is not just
the amount of work that he puts into benefit
his community, but that Steven has found a
way to make it look oh so cool!!! Read more...
WINTER X-GAMES ATHLETE
31--year--old Calvin Felker of Loveland, CO gave the Colorado snowmobile community great reason to celebrate as one of their own was invited to the Winter X Games this year. Felker was one of 10 people selected by the Winter X Games committee to compete in the hillcross event. What makes Calvin truly special though, is that he is much more then just a Winter X Games athlete. As a true enthusiast and businessman he is an ambassador to the sport he loves, volunteering much of his time with organizations such as the Colorado Snowmobile Association (CSA), The Colorado Blizzards, The Snowy Range and Tyler’s Backcountry Awareness.

WE NEED YOU
Jerry Abboud, Executive Director, COHVCO
Next year marks the 30th anniversary of COHVCO, sadly if our current situation continues it may be difficult to reach our 31st. Over the past decade we have seen participation by Board members representing our key partners and even founding members fall off greatly. Of equal importance is the very difficult task of funding the organization. The good news is we have added two new Board members but we need a dirtbike rider and ATV rider to have as additional Board members. So we need you to let us know if you can serve.

OUR WORST ENEMY? OURSELVES?
I've said it many times before and I'll say it again. We (dirt bike riders) are our own worst enemy when it comes to keeping our trails open. We damage the trails (wrong bike, wrong tires, wrong gearing, go off the trail, short-cut the trail, ride trails beyond our skill level), we do stupid s*%! (cut doughnuts at the trailhead parking lot, ride county & USFS roads at 90 mph), are inconsiderate to other trail users (speed past them, scare them, their family, their dog or horse) and we think loud pipes are cool (NOT COOL) or that we need a loud pipe to get more horsepower when we don't have enough talent to ride a stocker.
