Having just read about snow and sleds and trails again, I have to wonder what the hubub is all about. I've never known anyone who does a lot of snowmobiling, er, sledding, so I'm a little ignorant. Seems like driving through the woods in the freezing cold on a noisy machine wouldn't be all that attractive. Then again, I've never been on one before.

What is the attraction here? Why do you sled? How would you convince me to take a ride?
