Alberta Snowmobile Show - 2015 Photo Essay Re-cap (43 pics) | Mountain Sledder
Edmonton. Always mega and always worth it. This season, as thousands of World Wide Dreamers met at the Northlands to get ‘motivated to sell’, thousands of other dream live’rs (aka Sledders) walked through the opposite set of doors in the Alberta Snowmobile show to get motivated to send it.
The best we can do for today’s story is to throw a bunch of our un-edited pics from TGFG up and let you sift through em. There’s no way we can edit all these pics and also get a story live today so we figure this is better than nothing. We know you’re all just going to re-edit them in Instagram when you steal them from here anyways so without further adieu, here we go.
First things first, let’s award the ‘Best Mullet’ category. This guy was picking up a new 2015 Golden BC Trail Map when we snapped his pic. Nice work buddy. Nice work.

The show always starts with a long drive with a lot of boxes. Here’s the bleary eye’d CFR crew setting up featured in our first photo of the whole trip.
The best part about the show is bumping into buddies like Chris Brown, who you haven’t seen in a while.
Speaking of buddies, here’s Rob Alford with a signed cover of Issue 6 at the Revelstoke booth. Chea bro.
As the show got going the characters started showing up.
Speaking of characters: Avalanche professional Jeremy Henke
Rob Kincaid with his supercharged AC was there.
So was Dave McClure with his supercharged AC. We let Gear Girl decide who’s was better -more on that later.
The lovely Julie-Ann Chapman signed a poster for us.
And of course the Ams Oil girls were there.
Here’s a finger throttle from Munster that caught our eye.
Ski-Doo’s attempt at a snowboard rack. Jury’s out on this one.
Entries for both video and photo were narrowed down to the top five selections in each category. These were then evaluated by the panel of judges in 22 categories which measure impact, creativity, subject matter, storytelling, wow! factor, marketability, style and merit/skill.Read More
Due to an overwhelming number of close calls involving snowmobilers last season, Avalanche Canada presentations at snowmobile shows this fall will focus on the lessons learned from sledders who are fortunate to be alive. The intent of re-telling these stories is not only to examine the mistakes made, but highlight avalanche awareness and introduce available resources to help ensure safe backcountry sledding.Read More
