Matt Occhionero

State: Colorado
Sled: 800 RMK PRO 155
Favorite place to Ride: Rabbit Ears Pass

 

Matt started riding after attending the 2005 X Games in Aspen, CO. He went to watch snowboarding and heard the sound of a snowmobile racing around the track.

 

He loved watching the snowmobiles race that day and went back to work telling everyone about his experience. A friend from work offered to bring Matt snowmobiling and let him snowboard down hills all day. Well…after throwing a leg over a snowmobile for the first time Matt was hooked! He has become very passionate about snowmobiling and has introduced many people into the sport. Now he has a wife and two daughters who are just as passionate as Matt is; they spend as much family time on the mountain as possible.

 

About six years ago he started a facebook page (Colorado Snowmobile Family) to help bring the people around him into the sport. Giving riders a place to communicate about everything snowmobiling related. Matt's main reason for starting this group was to bring riders together with different schedules, in hopes that nobody has to ride alone. With about a dozen close friends, they run the page that now has around 1,000 members! Matt is looking forward to another great season on the snow!
