hard to start

I have a 2008 Kawasaki Teryx and I have a problem starting it. I pull the choke out and turn the key and just barely push the gas pedal. Sometimes it sounds like it is going to start but it doesn't. The battery was purchased in Sept 2010 and I know when I get it started we do not run around enough to keep the battery charged. So I have tried many things, I have tried jumping her with my car and it still does not start easily. I am wondering if I need to get a new battery. I am not sure how long batteries last. Also the side by side is at an elevation of 94,000. So please help me on with getting her started easily. I don't have access in getting her into a garage until October, so if anyone can help me with my starting problem would be great.
