Here is a interesting small write up on snowmobiling. I copied and pasted this article from http://www.chieftain.com/life/1169535918/3

Snowmobile history and facts
There were 91,670 snowmobiles sold in the United States in 2006. The average price was $8,269.
There are nearly 1.7 million registered snowmobiles in the U.S. and 36,500 of those are in Colorado. Michigan has the most: 374,522.
More than 225,000 miles of groomed and marked snowmobile trails exist in North America.
The average age of a snowmobiler is 41, but 37 percent of riders are 50 or older. The average household income among snowmobilers is $71,000.
The first patent for a "snow machine" was issued in 1927 to Carl Eliason of Sayner, Wis. Joseph-Armand Bombardier designed the modern snowmobile in 1958 and began commercial production of the Ski-Doo snowmobile.
Yellowstone National Park began allowing snowmobiling in 1968, as a way for people to experience the park during winter. Riders must have low-emission machines and may travel only on groomed roadways.
Snowmobilers ride an average of 990 miles per year.
