Nice pics!

I guess by the looks of it, they didn't allow any picture taking while in the factory.  Too bad.

Back in the summer of '89, we went up to Roseau (on bikes) for Polaris' 35th anniversary party.  I had my big honkin' Magnavox VHS video camera going through the whole tour, both Arctic and Polaris.  Cat didn't care, Polaris said no, but I shot from the hip anyway.

The experience center looks very interesting.

Nothing better than taking a bike ride to look at sleds.

You are  coorect Fur Coat Guy, they asked us not to take pictures in the plant.  :baseballbat:

They have four assembly lines, 2 for ATV's, one for sleds and one for side x sides. Only two lines running at the time. Economy is affecting them as well :-[

Nice pictures - thanks for sharing them.

The Thrill Team was another marketing idea that paid off for the winters 69 and 70.
However had to be discontinued due to the sport becoming significant enough that there was a need to promote safety. 

Safety is for chumps.
