It’s been unseasonably warm at the tail end of this winter and it’s easy to get spring-fever. While most of us didn’t have much riding time, our sleds have gotten a year older. If you didn’t get a 2012 snowmobile last season, now is a great time to stake your claim on a 2013. The manufacturers have gone to great efforts to make sure you get the best and most personalized deal now and some manufacturers will even get you a sled you can’t get during the season. Here are the spring deals in a nutshell.

Arctic Cat offers the same models in the Fall as they do in the Spring, but you can’t get the same deal and you’ll be taking a chance that the model you want won’t be available. Last year Cat sold out of every 1100 Turbo they could build and had limited numbers of the popular Pearl White and Orange color.
Arctic Cat is offering your choice of either 6.9% financing for 60 months or No Money down, No Interest, and No Payments until March 1, 2013. Plus with either deal you’ll get a 3-Year Warranty and $500 Cat Cash for gear and accessories. Simply put $500 down by April 20th and take delivery by October 1st, 2012.
There are some limitations and you’ll have to see your Arctic Cat dealer for details, but this will get you the best consumer program available from Cat.

Polaris invented the Snow Check and they don’t disappoint for 2013. They offer exclusive body colors and extended warranties if you order this spring. Their retro colors have been popular and turn the most heads, but you can only get it if you Snow Check.

In Canada you can get either a 3-Year Polaristar warranty or 2-Year powertrain warranty and up to $1000 in Pure Polaris gear.

Similar to Arctic Cat, Yamaha doesn’t have spring-only models, but you do get one of the best deals in snowmobiling. Yamaha is the only manufacturer that doesn’t give you a choice. With Yamaha you get it all.
If you order a new 2013 Yamaha snowmobile on their Spring Power Surge program, you’ll get up to $800 customer cash for Yamaha gear and accessories, plus a free 45th Anniversary fleece jacket, plus a 3-year warranty, plus zero interest for 6 months.
