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.
Previous to that.
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.
Brett Turcotte’s signature CFR bars look pretty awesome.
Some more people shots…
Aaron Bernasconi from Golden Snowmobile Adventures and Brad Gilmore chatting.

Massive props to these two for helping us set up.

All the 509 athletes who were in the house before we played the movie.
Some of us made good decisions that night and others of us made great decisions that night.
SUNDAY – not a lot of pics got taken.
This guy’s score on our ‘New Guy Checklist’ piece for Issue 7 is going up now that he bought new gear from Martin’s.
Last shot of the show and mental note. If you want a photo with Carl Kuster you might have to wait till 4:55pm on Sunday to get it. Dang that guy’s busy.
Personal use of one of these pics? Steal away but link back to us if you do. @sleddermag
Corporate use of these pics? We need to talk tim-at-summitcommunications.ca
