Beacon Checkpoints in Memory of RMR Installed at Idaho Trailheads
In memory of Rob Kincaid aka RMR, trailhead transceiver checkers have been installed at three popular backcountry snowmobile trailheads in Idaho.
The initiative to install transceiver checkers at trailheads most commonly used by Kincaid, who passed away in an avalanche on April 3, 2020, was spearheaded by close friend and fellow professional athlete, David McClure.

Posts for the new trailhead checkers and signage were installed by McClure, with help from Rob’s brother and the Forest Service, back in November.
The trailhead signs were designed by Octane Ink and built by Rob’s cousin, Brian Nelson, from Montana Metal Art Company. The signs were installed in March with the help of McClure, Nelson and an Arctic Cat representative.
Arctic Cat, a long-time sponsor of Kincaid as a professional rider, sponsored one of the stations.
The trailhead transceiver checkers and signage are installed at the following trailheads in Idaho:
- Pole Canyon – Victor
- Pine Creek Pass – Swan Valley
- Sheep Creek – Swan Valley
All three checkpoints are now ready to promote increased safety in the backcountry and ensure RMR’s legacy lives on in Idaho.
