Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club finally hits the trail

For Joe Tonso, 71, snowmobiling isn’t simply about the power of the machine, the speed, or the exhilaration of the ride, though the sport does offer those perks. A Glenwood Springs native, Tonso moved to Craig in 1969 with his wife, Jenn, to teach math and computer science at Moffat County High School. Avid outdoor enthusiasts, Tonso and Jenn spent much of their free time hunting and fishing. Then, in the late 1960s, a friend who owned a Ski-Doo dealership in Glenwood Springs convinced the couple to take out two of his sleds for the day.
