Perfecting The Trade: The CKMP Experience

November 23, 2017 |

Exiting the busy flow of the Trans-Canada Highway and starting down the quiet back road toward CKMP, I am overcome with the calming sense that I am about to withdraw from reality for a few days. Nestled in the Interior BC snowbelt between Revelstoke and Sicamous, the deep snowbanks and tall trees lining the road here feel worlds apart from the everyday.Read More

4 Tips For Taking Your Man Sledding

November 18, 2017 |

Since your man is not a big mountain rider, it can be assumed he will not have a valuable opinion to contribute here. Fortunately, this means you can forgo involving him in terrain choices or decision making for the day. This will sidestep the potential for a disagreement based on a difference of opinion.Read More

Not The Glory Days—Don’t Let Poor Conditions Hold You Back

November 12, 2017 |

It’s hard to get fired up to ride when you know it hasn’t snowed in two or three weeks. The first key to mentally getting beyond the problem is finding riding partners who are perpetually stoked to shred. That way you know they won’t flake out on you.Read More

Silence in the Aftermath of an Avalanche

November 5, 2017 |

This time however, the silence is different. Instead of being enlightening, it is oppressive and crushing. This time you are alone without being alone. This silence is not peaceful and the reflection is focused on regret; regret that you didn’t make time for that avalanche training last year when you could have.Read More

Difference in Riding Style – Canada vs USA Riders

October 29, 2017 |

So many photos and video from the USA feature a rider shredding with their leg hanging off the running board like a dog marking its territory. Hop overs, turbo-wheelies, and busting ass up gnarly creekbeds: watching the Yankees tear it up is a lesson in precision placement and handling of a snowmobile.Read More

Ride On, Gord

October 25, 2017 |

Time marches on and special people that teach us a little about life will continue to pass through our world. Some of these people we will forget and others will leave long-lasting impressions on us. It is up to us to recognize these people and their lessons, for they certainly have no way of knowing the impact that they may have on our lives. You may not even realize what you’ve learned from them until it’s too late to show them your appreciation—when you pull into a familiar old place with a fluorescent green estate sale sign in the driveway.Read More

The “Other” Fall Tradition: Snowmobile Clubs Prepare for Season

October 13, 2017 |

Your club has been out cutting trees off of the trails, checking bridges and installing culverts, repairing gates and cleaning parking lots. They’ve been brush cutting and clearing, making sure signs and trail markers are visible and safe. Even those outhouses—you know, the ones that save you from a truly embarrassing trailside accident after three gas station burritos—even those need to be cleaned, repaired and stocked by somebody.Read More

It wasn’t really any harder to move with my 165”, but Miller was full pin everywhere on his 146”. We made pulls through the trees, sidehills, popped off pillows of snow and rode some fun creekbeds to end the day.Read More
