About this Blog
I’m Chris Reid, and I have been riding snowmobiles since the 60’s and working at Yamaha Motor Canada for the past twenty five years in snowmobile product planning, development and marketing. Prior to lucking out and landing a ‘dream job’ developing sleds with a truly excellent company, I owned and worked in dealerships in the BC Interior. I have had the good fortune to ride snowmobiles in seven different countries and in practically every kind of condition imaginable. I stopped counting my trips to our factory in Japan after the fortieth stamp on my passport and currently maintain the position of National Manager, Product Planning and Research here at Yamaha Motor Canada. More recently, taking on the role of snowmobile product planning management for North America.

So, like the fine print says, keep it deep and real, don’t ask me to look up the ring end gap for your Inviter or beat on me because you baked your hy-fax on Kevlar Lake and I’ll try to keep the lid on the corporate white-wash bucket.
