Alberta Snowmobile Association Launches National Snowmobiling Environment Month
(Edmonton, AB January 2011): Across Canada, snowmobilers have been doing their part to keep nature beautiful for more than 40 years. Now, the Canadian Council of Snowmobile Organizations (CCSO) and the Alberta Snowmobile Association (ASA) are bringing snowmobilers together by launching the National Snowmobiling Environment Month, February 2011.
National Snowmobiling Environment Month celebrates a good news story. Today’s clean and advanced technology snowmobiles run more efficiently, effectively and quieter than ever before. They also benefit Mother Nature by significantly reducing emissions and virtually eliminating smoke and smell. In fact, modern snowmobile engines produce 98% fewer hydrocarbons and 94% less sound than older sleds. Overall, snowmobiles account for only a small fraction of all the motor fuel burned
