I was hanging out with my neighbors recently and one asked me how my wife lets me ride so much during the winter months (I average 3,000 plus mountain miles per season). I told them I gotta work at it.
Here are my tips for earning enough brownie points in the off-season, to sled more in-season:
For the sixth straight year, BRP has taken the lead in promoting avalanche education and awareness by sponsoring nearly 60 free seminars in North America. Open to all snowmobilers, the seminars offers fresh, renewed and relevant content and will be held in local dealerships starting late September. Click here for the full schedule [choose Avalanche Seminars in the pull-down menu].
More than 10,000 people have attended these seminars the past few years. That’s why BRP and its instructor-partners work every off-season to refresh the content so first-time or returning attendees will be actively engaged. Snowmobilers are encouraged to bring their friends and riding buddies to ensure that those they ride with are well-informed.
We’re partnering with SuperTrax magazine and SnowTrax TV to find North America’s Top Snowmobiler. The winner – chosen by fan voting – will win the 2017 Ski-Doo snowmobile of their choice and a trip to the 2017 Club BRP new product introduction in Dallas, Tex.
SnowTrax TV host Luke Lester and their crew headed to Colorado this winter to ride with Ski-Doo Backcountry Expert Jeremy Mercier. They sampled the Summit X with T3, great Rocky Mountain tree riding and talked avalanche safety.
I was fortunate to spend some time on the Summit X with T3 last season and knew right away it would be a game changer. The guys and gals at Ski-Doo asked me to write a little thing about what it’s like to ride for people thinking of moving to a 2016 Summit X or Summit SP with T3.
If you’re thinking about buying a Ski-Doo Summit with the 3 inch lugs – as a Summit X or Summit SP, here’s my experience this season riding at home in Alaska and a few weeks with the Ride Rasmussen style team.
BRP asked me to give them a recap of my experience riding my Summit X with T3 this season since the T3 is now standard on X sleds and an option on SP models. You’re considering buying one, so here’s my take.
The T3 package for Summit sleds makes a difference. A big one. For all types of riders. That’s why for 2016 we have expanded the technology to all Summit X sleds and made it an option for Summit SP sleds. We asked our backcountry experts – who have ridden these sleds extensively and even helped develop them – what they’re like to ride.
