Question Sleds

Ok so i dont want to sound stupid but in the backcountry I always skin up. But i have a question about using snowmobiles. I was wonder if you drove the snowmobile to the top of the mountain and then rode down, how the hell do you get your snowmobile back down. Or does it not work like that? Could some one plz explain the whole snowmobile thing

Ghost ride the whip down. Just make sure you don't go at the same time. There is a video I saw last year of some dude getting ran over by his sled.

LOL, ghost ride the whip huh? I think you are better off just bringing 2 people and taking turns, it's a lot safer anyways to have 2 or more people.

i always wondered this too but i just assumed it was 2 up 1 down. how long does it take to drive a snowmobile with 2 peeps on it back up? faster than a lift at a resort?

You guys have never seen people ghost ride their sled down. I looked for the video I was talking about. It was funny when the dude was ran over by his own sled. Might have killed him though if his buddy didn't move the sled off of him.

A lot of people actually don't like powder, it's too hard for them. More for me.
