Fall is officially here, and the chill blowing through the air reminds all of Colorado that winter is right around the corner. With that comes seasonal hassles like de-icing the sidewalk and cleaning snow off the car in the mornings. For many, however, excitement far outweighs frustrations when winter arrives because where there’s snow, there is also snow sports. Of course, Colorado is renowned for its world-class ski resorts, but there is an array of options when it comes to winter activities. One of the most popular choices among tourists and residents alike is snowmobiling. Without the physical demands and expensive resort passes that come with skiing, snowmobiling is an accessible and enjoyable way to take in the state’s scenic beauty.
For snowmobile owners and enthusiasts, having a unique look to their machine is just as important as it is to a snowboarder to have a custom deck. Not only does it make one identifiable from a distance in deep snow, it adds a personal style to the vehicle. Some may opt for a custom paint job on their snowmobile, but this can be too expensive for most, plus it can be difficult to apply and can damage resale value. Paint does little to protect the original plastic underneath, and it takes extra time to remove, making it a more permanent choice than some alternatives.
What has grown increasingly popular among snowmobilers is the use of vinyl wrapping. Vehicle wraps have been heavily utilized in commercial advertising for years and, slowly but surely, have made it into the land of retail product customization. Instead of a brand or logo, the graphic can be of whatever you want. Whether a monogram, an image or graphic, the possibilities are endless, which is the main appeal! Vinyl can be designed to any specification and, thus, tailored to your needs and desires.
As for installation, snowmobile wrapping works well because it can fit a variety of shapes, conforming to grooves, corners, and curves without adding any extra weight. Snowmobiles’ unusual shapes require the ease of installation that vinyl wrapping offers: just add a little heat and the material adheres to the surface without shrinking. Once it is applied, it won’t lift back up (at least not until direct heat is reapplied), which means you won’t need to worry about your design coming off when the going gets rough. In fact, if the vinyl is a high-quality material, a snowmobile wrap can actually protect the stock plastic from the chips and scratches.
Should the time come where you are ready to sell your snowmobile, pristine condition will tremendously increase the likelihood of getting an attractive return on your initial investment. With its protective abilities and easy removal, a well done snowmobile wrap can do more than almost any other customization in preserving the market value of your vehicle.
