Yamafest 09

So the sledshot.com team left Golden to go check out Yamafest ’09 in Revelstoke, and bring you reports, videos and shots from the event….

Trouble was, we were all busy on Saturday enjoying the great conditions we had nearby, and as we drove the 90 mins from Golden to Revelstoke on Sunday morning we saw a LOT of Yamaha’s on trucks and trailers heading East.  Yep, that’s right, the opposite direction.

Turns out our information about it being a two day event was not 100% accurate!  Still, we had a great day in Revy – first time in Turtle for all of us – holy s**t – that’s some sweet terrain.  Enjoyed a day watching the slednecks crew (Brett Turcotte) hammer some big airs, watch some of the remaining Yammy Turbos do some insane chute climbs, while our own Aaron Bernasconi and Sean McCaig spent some time in front of the camera too – more of that though another time!

For now, what we need is any updates you might have on Yamafest ’09.  If you have any photos, news, updates, video – anything from Saturday – we’d love to hear from you!

Next year we promise to be on time…..!
