Default Am Snow Mag shutting down

“Dear Industry Colleagues,

Over the last few years, the snowmobiling category has been challenging and uncertain, which has had an impact on the growth of American Snowmobiler. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision that the November 2019 issue will be the last issue of American Snowmobiler.

Kalmbach Media has greatly enjoyed working in the Snowmobiling industry and we value all the great industry partnerships we have built since we acquired American Snowmobiler 15 years ago. We thank you for your support of our brand and wish you continued success in the industry.

There will continue to be some opportunities to advertise to our email, social, and digital audience. Please contact Michael Wieloch for more information.
Please contact us if you have any questions on ads you may have placed for issues beyond November 2019.

Best regards,

The American Snowmobiler Team”

Not long ago Rodeo Rider commented about Amsnow trying to screw her husband over with a subscription renewal, even though he had upped the prior year. Here's the thread:

What are the odds people will get a refund? Pretty slim, I bet

They were at Haydays selling subscriptions! I talked to the editor and another person. They recognized me from the AmSno ride in Munising last year. I asked what they were putting together for this year, their response was we aren't sure yet. Guess i know the answer.
