It’s a fresh season with new dreams and goals. However, before heading deep into the backcountry, it’s time to arm yourself with information about avalanche gear and training! Now is also the best time to test out all your gear, and make sure that you and your riding buddies are all on the same page with regards to skills and best practices this winter!
Most guys don’t go out and buy a brand new F-350 Super Duty for their first set of wheels. It’s usually more like a rusty Madza 323 with a leaky gas tank, or some other P.O.S. with hardly any brakes and even less chick magnetism. The same holds true for sledders buying a used sled.

The number one question I get at shows, dealer opens or on the snow is: “How do I get sponsored to ride my snowmobile?” Well, I hope I can offer some help to athletes looking to work in the snowmobile industry with these 7 Tips on How to Become a Sponsored Snowmobiler.
At a glance, the CKX Nieva One Piece Suit looks very much like many other one-piece suits out there. BUT, it has what I’m convinced is the greatest feature I’ve ever seen on a one-piece—a zipper going from outside of the knee to hip, over the butt and down the other side—a full, zippered butt-flap.
To the inexperienced ear, sledder slang may sound like pure gibberish. But knowing these words and phrases is important. Use a term the wrong way and you can easily be identified as a “newb”. To avoid that disaster, here’s Sledder Slang 101 – Part II.
