So if i hear correctly, what you are saying is, sledding is very slow and boring :D


It's not boring the chalange is to climb and not get stuck, when you climb as high as these machines are capable of it get the blood pumping.
I just found it more expensive then dirt biking because of the distances I had to travel to go sledding and once you get the conditions are so
hit and miss. If I lived in BC I would still be into sledding. To travel 4 hrs. and find the area socked in with fog was disapointing.


so it's slow, boring, and expensive??

It was pretty pounded on the main riding areas, but if you are adventurous, the south facing slopes were outstanding. The "burn" area, which is the south facing slope, was really good. In addition, we were able to make it all the way to the end, which would be the west end, east facing bowl. Incredible pow stashes througout that area. The turbo was shredding the POW!!! Avalanche danger was moderate in the alpine, so we stayed safe and ripped up the technical treed stuff and smaller pokes.

I think the next adventure will be McBride/Renshaw. Have any of you made it over that way? I've heard its awesome. Any recommendations?

Never been up north and I've heard it's awesome too. How was the trip?
Hopefully I can get out next weekend, Revy and Sicamous are getting pounded.

Hey, havn't had time to get back up north yet, but would like to go for sure. I was fortunate enough to be skiing at Fernie this past weekend and it was sick!! 80-90 cm of fresh made the skiing incredible. I was missing my sled for sure though!

One of my contractors from Edmonton is arranging an Alaskan trip in March 2013. Load 30 sleds in Edmonton on a custom trailer, fly up to Whitehorse a week later, ride for 5 days, fly home. Cost is $3k and includes transport, flights, and hotel. Meals, gas and bevies are on you. He has about 18 spots secured already but is looking to flange up the rest. PM me if you are interested and I will put you in touch (or if you have a sled to borrow :blush: ....)

So anyone snow check a new sled for next year? A few of my buddies picked up the new 2013 skidoo XM 800 and a couple others went to the new Polaris 800. I got a fresh top end fully rebuilt by BRP mid season so I'm probably going to keep mine for all of next season...but that's a long time away yet so we'll see what happens.
