WOW, I'll stick to dirt biking thank you... :eek:


Bad video to display sledding. Check out the video's that Mark posted earlier in this thread for what most of us do when sledding. I do NOT climb chutes or do this type of riding that is in the video. The video's that show off Chris Burandt and Brett Rassmussen sidhilling in technical trees, that's more my style.

Brent...I totally think what you guys do with your sled is cool. But if I had a sled I'd be the first redneck trying to climb those chutes. That's why I don't have a street bike either. Know thy self.

Keep the video's coming though. They're cool to watch :thumbsup:

Yeah that was one of the scariest crashes I've ever seen. Mostly because it went on for so long.

On another note, I was up to Valemount this past weekend. We rode Allen Creek both days. 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?

Well he did at least back away from the cornice for a while. That was intense.
Question...Do lots of guys ride solo (no partner)?
and
Does his sled suck because it sure seemed slow?

His sled certainly does not suck. It's a Summit 800, pretty much the most common machine in the mountains. Roughly 160hp. You know how hard it is to walk up a steep slope in waist deep powder, think about how hard that machine is working.

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.
