Inari: I’ve always been a nature person and spoke strongly for moving in nature, conservation and vegetarianism. For many, that hasn’t fit to same person with snowmobiling, unlike, for example, hiking. I think that you can enjoy nature in many ways. I equate snowmobiling with boating in summer time. I think a snowmobiler and a nature person fit well in the same person. In the village I live, I've hardly seen other females on snowmobiles. In the beginning I came across an attitude of, “let’s see if that lady from the south can even start a sled, let alone back up with that sleigh.” I’ve shown that yes she can!
Minttu: I’ve also had a thought that snowmobiling is a very masculine thing. Then I realized that with the right equipment and certain confidence you can make it – no matter age or gender. Thanks to snowmobiling, I’ve noticed that even I can enjoy nature and powersports. In the past I’ve underestimated myself in many ways and that was again a good example. I dare!
