In a throwback to the 1970s, the Ariens Arrow snowmobile was featured in the December 2015 issue of the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs' (AWSC) Wisconsin Snowmobile News magazine.
In the article, author Pat Bourgeois summarizes how Ariens entered the snowmobile business with the Arrow in 1969 before removing the snowmobile from its product lineup in 1973.
During that time period, there were two models of the Arrow. The advertisements below from 1970 show the 400SS, which was built for competition, and the 400L, which was marketed toward families.
