I'm with you Oneshot, my sled is a vehicle to find pow to shred but it's so much fun snowmobiling that it may be hard to shred

This is my first season with a sled

I planned on hauling a friend on the back and hunting, but now that I've ridden it, I will prolly buy another one so nobody is on mine

The ultimate for me would be a sled paired up with my splitboard. The only problem I have with sleds is that you generally don't get to do trophy lines with them. Quick laps, hell yeah, and a whole ton of fun terrain. When you get into trophy line hunting though, human power is going to have to get you there eventually. Often with a huge sled assist, like what would be handy for Mt Baker. Holy Cross is another one where a sled assist would be great. There is definitely room in my arsenal for a sled.

All true statements..

although depending on where you live, in the NW its about 600 to 1200 vert runs with lots of features and pow ALL DAY, but if you want the BIG lines there are plenty of sled accessed trophy lines up in B.C. and easy pickings...

lots of people get sleds and forget why they got them cuz sledding deep pow is SO fun.. took me a couple seasons with a sled to get back into snowboarding a lot more.. but.. u have to learn how to ride the sled to get to the lines.. so.. thats my excuse

Ya I have a whole new respect for people who can makes their sled dance

I dumped mine over within the first 10 minutes of riding it and I grew up racing atv's

Weight transfer is on a completely different level with sleds than with atv's

Oh riding a sled is an art no doubt. I have very limited experience with driving a sled, it's not easy, that is for sure.

Quick lap pow runs, yeah that's fun. I also enjoy earning my turns and not getting as much in. Both have a place. Doing sled laps at Utopia on Vail Pass is hard to beat. Then again, getting out without the noise for a long day tour has it's charms too.

i'm the jerk that bought an aftermarket pipe/can that's louder.. the louder it is the faster you think you're going and when you are submarining in deep pow you can hear where your throttle is at to adjust for the next submarine turn.. i do like when we get far out into a zone and stop and break though, its nice and quiet cuz we're the only sleds in the zone.. haha.. ahhh the peace it brings..

What kind of world do we live in when a man has to choose between getting a snowmobile or a boat? Is this a sign that we have hit rock bottom?
