The riding around Kimberley is tech. Tight, steep trees with lots of gullies and creeks to test anyone’s machine and ability. There aren’t any groomed trails or warm up cabins so come fully prepared with a few basic tools, tow rope, warm clothes and lots of food and water because you will be on your own. Kimberley is famous for dry, deep powder and we weren’t disappointed when we arrived.
A couple of friends of mine were doing an AST1 course last weekend, so the three of us decided to add in a day of “research” before the course, and another day after it. We’d heard a lot about snowmobiling in McBride from the Mountain Sledder community, and we were keen to see what all the talk was about.
