HAY DAYS is ON !!!

Posted on June 13th, 2020 in Sledder News

“After much discussion we’ve decided to proceed with preparations for Hay Days 2020 as scheduled.”

A letter form Sno Barons Snowmobile Club …

As communicated last week, we are providing you a status on the planning for Hay Days 2020. First we want to thank everyone who provided input, both solicited and unsolicited, on the importance of Hay Days to the powersports community. At the same time, we’ve needed to weigh health and safety concerns presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and feel confident we could host an event that was both safe and worthwhile for everyone involved.

After much discussion we’ve decided to proceed with preparations for Hay Days 2020 as scheduled. While no one can predict what COVID-related challenges may still exist three months from now, we are hopeful the situation will continue to improve. Understanding it will take many months if not years for the nation to return to the pre-COVID freedoms we once enjoyed, our efforts over the three months leading to Hay Days will be focused on the changes necessary to safely conduct Hay Days recognizing a new reality where physical distancing, robust sanitation practices, and self-awareness must be front and center. We will also be closely monitoring the rapidly evolving state and local guidelines and their impacts on our plans. Please understand as the situation unfolds over the next three months, the possibility exists that we may need to revisit our decision.

Over the next few weeks as our readiness plans develop, we will be communicating regularly with exhibitors, food vendors, racers, staff, and our guests to set expectations and collaboratively develop the new protocols that must be diligently followed. Please monitor haydays.comfor the latest event-related information and expect our Hay Days event team to be reaching out with more information.

The buzz surrounding the start-up, high-tech snowmobile manufacturer known as Taiga continues to build momentum as we patiently and eagerly await our opportunity to squeeze the “juice” of this rechargeable sled.

The most recent was a segment produced by VICE Media, where the global media company spent a week at the Taiga Research and Development facility back in February of this year. While there, Taiga CEO and Co-founder Sam Bruneau explained how the company began, the challenges it faces and the exhilarating feeling of riding an electric snowmobile. You can watch the video HERE

SKI-DOO AND CAN-AM ANNOUNCE 90-DAY WARRANTY EXTENSION

Posted on May 5th, 2020 in Offroad News, Sledder News

Press Release: Valcourt, Quebec, April 29, 2020 – BRP Inc. (TSX:DOO; NASDAQ:DOOO) has decided to make the current period a little more bearable by announcing a 90-day extension to all of its manufacturer limited warranty, expiring between March 15 and June 30, 2020, across all its powersports product lines (Ski-Doo®, Lynx®,, Sea-Doo® and Can-Am®).

This initiative is an indication of BRP’s commitment to deliver an exceptional customer experience, even during these challenging times, and is part of the recent “Together, We Ride” project which is a reminder that tough times require new responses. Since some BRP dealers have temporarily closed or are partially open, we wanted to ensure that our customers can fully benefit from their warranty.

″In the current context, people already have a lot of other things on their mind. We didn’t want their warranties running out to be one of them, especially with reduced service department capacity. We wanted to make sure we make things as easy as we can by being the first OEM in North America to offer a 90-day warranty extension on all our powersports products,” said Delton Bohlman, Vice-President, Global Customer Services Parts & Accessories at BRP. “Together, We Ride is not just a catchphrase for us: we are all in this together and we need to do our part to help each other get through it.”

Customers who qualify do not need to take any action to be included in the warranty extension program, they will be automatically prolonged. The 90-day extension applies to all limited warranties and B.E.S.T. extended service coverage which are set to expire between March 15 and June 30, 2020.
