Whatever your activity, whether it be shredding groomed trail at a million kph, or slashing pow in the backcountry, you need the arsenal. You wouldn’t go into battle without a weapon, the same way you wouldn’t saddle up your whip without the right equipment. Time to gear up. Girls and Guns. A match made in heaven. 509 Women’s Ride Tee – $29 – We at Mountain Sledder don’t exactly endorse shooting your clothing prior to wearing them, but we’re not formally against it either. You Read more [...]
There aren’t too many riders willing to toss convention to the wind and rock a mono, so those that do tend to stand out from the crowd. Were they dropped as babies? Do they have a passion for the colour purple? Do they suffer from some debilitating personality defect in which popular opinion fails to register? OR… is it possible that they are the enlightened few who have figured out how beat the system? Hmmm.
Sometimes things don’t go according to plan, even for the pro riders. Tyler Blair found this out the hard way when he crash landed a jump and the force of the impact not only drew blood but also deployed his airbag! – MS “It was one of the few sunny days I had guiding clients for Ride Whistler this winter, so I really wanted to show them how amazing and vast our backcountry really is. Even though I knew access was sketchy at best, I made the decision to go up the Rutherford Icecap. Read more [...]
Is Gear Girl real? Is there a girl out there who cruises sled shows looking for the latest and greatest all the while looking like the girl next door? Perhaps. If you live in the right neighbourhood. Just as there’s a perfect girl out there (she’s beautiful and knows her turbochargers), there’s a perfect piece of gear out there that’s going to put your rig in another class. We hit up the Alberta Snowmobile & Powersports Show in Edmonton this October with said perfect girl to see what’s Read more [...]
Jon Jean takes a break from getting rad to show us some of the features of the Highmark by Snowpulse Pro avalanche airbag, cut together with a few clips of some super fun looking deep pow freeriding! – MS
March 21, 2015 – Quartz Creek, Golden BC – Poor snow conditions have been definitive of this season. Yet Golden BC has been one of the few areas consistently holding down good riding conditions, but as of March 21 things have become even better. A storm has been hammering the place this past week. It may be raining down low but anywhere around and above the 2000m mark is getting fresh pow, effectively resetting winter and renewing the potential for deep days. It just so happens that there’s more Read more [...]
“Being only 16 years old and not even having a driver’s license, things are tough when it comes to sledding. I work my entire summer break at one of the local dealerships, and then when it’s time to go back to school I’m left with a little cash, so why not spend all of it on my sled, gas and oil?”
A throwback to 509 Films Volume 7 and the Idaho edit, still a favorite.

Shelley Heap regularly stomps the competition on the RMSHA hillclimb circuit, but she also challenges herself by attending university, holding down a part-time job and getting into the backcountry as much as possible. Even if hillclimb racing isn’t your bag, her name should be on your list of impressive sledding talent. Here’s what she had to say about her life and busy schedule. “In addition to racing on the RMSHA Women’s Pro circuit, I also attend Utah State University Read more [...]
The Stunt Freaks Team are back at it again, this time by flying a snowmobile off a mountain. StuntFreaksTeam YouTube Description: “Thanks for TUPLA made this possible! We made flying snowmobile and glide down from mountain in Riksgränsen Sweden! Had so epic time to film this.
