Default Any of you guys sledders?

Up here in northern Canada we have 8 months of winter and some of the best backcountry terrain in the world. Needless to say Ive been riding sleds all my life. Over the weekend I picked up a new skidonkey for the stable to replace the turbo I have been riding the last couple years.

The old whip


The new ride

When I lived in Oregon I rode a yamaha phazer for work, I sure do miss that sometimes but I don't miss some of what went with that.

I ride a 14 Summit X 163. I just got a new phone and none of my sled pics transferred. I’ve been searching for an 850 haven’t found the one yet. I mainly ride Island Park, Togwatee, Alpine, and Cooke City. Are you going to turbo your 850?

I've never even seen a snowmobile/sled in person.

And I'd have to have the top notch riding gear, snow and I don't get along.


I'm sure there's common knowledge you all just know but how much danger is there in sledding without being able to see what's under the snow? or how soft the snow is - I can see where there's possibilities of "sinking in" if it's too soft like people do in sand when they aren't accustomed to driving in it? Just curious.

In the flatlands your pretty safe if you know the area. Knowing where the culverts and stumps and what not are along with the disc or harrows a farmer may have left in his field are pretty important.

I ride in the mountains. Biggest risk is the odd treetop, boulder or avalanches. Tree wells can swallow you up but I try to stay away from them. Avalanche terrain is deadly if you dont know what youre doing or how to read the snow. Its all a good time though.

honestly, coming from riding/racing dirt bikes, jumping on these felt right at home in the snow. its like riding in the dunes but more traction and predictability (which seems counter-intuitive). just needs more power for the steep climbs but running the tight trees is like running the single track stuff in flagstaff (all big pines there). really cool but you gotta be into dirt bike stuff to enjoy them. it makes me wish we had more snow here and i didnt have to drive 12 hours each time to get into decent snow.
