TGFG W2014/2015 Slideshow

February 6, 2016 |

TGFG. You might recognize Tim Grey’s name from the Mountain Sledder Magazine masthead, right underneath where it says ‘Editor-in-Chief’. But what you probably don’t realize is that he spends more time in the backcountry than any desk jockey has a right to, and he’s not shy about bringing along his camera for the adventure. Here’s his slideshow of shots from last winter. And no doubt about it, it’s full of bangers. Niche wuan.   https://youtu.be/wh18iQ-cxkk     – Read more […]Read More

Gear Review: HMK Action 2 Jacket

February 5, 2016 |

If falling down your ramp after you load your sled or riding in tight trees are your main sources of entertainment, you’re going to need to wrap yourself in something that can sustain these continuous horrible beatings. The first thing I noticed about the HMK Action 2 Jacket is how tough the outer fabric is; it even smells durable.   The Action 2 Jacket is made from Cascade Ballistic material and would suggest that perhaps it would withstand a barrage of explosive projectiles such as missiles Read more […]Read More

Ode to the Bail

February 4, 2016 | 2

Bailing is ok. Important even. No, really, it is. Without the torment of bailing we would never experience the euphoria of the make. It takes a certain amount of determination to subject oneself to the embarrassment, pain and ruthlessness of a good bail. All your friends are watching, having a laugh as you eat shit. But with a little wherewithal it’s you who is having the last laugh as you ride away from what was once thought impossible in your own mind. There is more of a life lesson in the Read more […]Read More

McBride Avalanche Deaths Preventable

February 4, 2016 | 3

The avalanche that caused the deaths of 5 men last weekend near McBride, BC was preventable, according to Karl Klassen, Avalanche Canada’s Public Avalanche Warning Service Manager, in a February 4 CBC news story. Klassen made reference to the fact that there were as many as 15-17 riders on the slope at one time—which is a key ‘no-no’ taught in all beginner-level Avalanche Skills Training courses instructed with Avalanche Canada’s curriculum. He also noted that although 3 of the 5 men who Read more […]Read More

X Games Snowmobile Freestyle Recap

February 3, 2016 |

Another season of X Games has come and gone, but the Snowmobile Freestyle event certainly leaves a lasting impression.

2016 RMSHA Season Opener

February 3, 2016 | 4

We just finished our RMSHA season opener at Klim the Mine in Bellevue, ID. It was a hit for both racers and spectators. Klim (technical riding gear) was a big sponsor for this Hillclimb, showing support on both days. The course at Bellevue was set up on an old mining mountain side. The hill was only 3 miles away from Hailey, Idaho bringing in a fantastic group of spectators that came out to support our sport. The owners of the property we raced on were very accommodating, as was the town of Hailey.     The course Read more […]Read More

Anti-Theft Device: Spot Trace

January 25, 2016 | 1

Let’s say your snowmobile did go missing. Wouldn’t you just love to be able to stick to those thieves? How about being able to hand over to the police the exact GPS coordinates of your stolen unit? That sounds pretty sweet.Read More

Reagan Sieg—Early Winter Bangers

January 22, 2016 |

Reagan Sieg checked in with Mountain Sledder this week about some of the super fun riding he’s been doing this year. You’ve probably seen lots of teaser footage of Reagan riding already this winter on social media, and it will be interesting to see what he’s got in the bag for next year’s line-up of snow films. Can’t wait!   Here’s what Reagan had to say: “This is one of the sickest captures I have had this season.  Side hill run in to this cliff bank and hipping off at an angle to Read more […]Read More

A Survivor Opens Up About The Avalanche That Took Her Fiance’s Life

January 20, 2016 | 1

“He died because I didn’t have a [transceiver], probe and shovel. Neither did he. He died because we didn’t take nine hours out of our busy schedule to take an avalanche awareness course. Now I realise the importance of equipping myself with avalanche safety knowledge and search and rescue gear. I also realise that in the end it is up to each individual to be responsible for their safety.”Read More

Polaris Axys Bent Rails

January 19, 2016 | 1

It was every sledder’s dream. A recent storm surge dumped a couple feet of blower pow over Christmas – enough to start sending big air. A ridge of high pressure built up by New Years Eve bringing sunshine. Bitter cold in the valley floor kept all but the most hardcore drinking hot chocolate indoors all day. After blasting through -27˚C air trapped down low we rose quickly to 6000 feet, building a few small kickers on the way to warm up. By Early afternoon the sun’s heat drove the clouds Read more […]Read More
