Spring Update

My cousin being a boss on the 2022 Ski-Doo Summit Edge

Time sure flies, as oddly enough my last post was on the first ride of the year, and now we’ve most likely concluded the snowmobile season for 2021-2022. That being said, I was fortunate enough to be able to go out most every weekend this winter. It was a much needed break, as summer bring with it a lot of work with two jobs (the day job and farming), and winter has lots of cold darkness… So, being able to get out and enjoy some outdoors with good friends was a very needed activity.

This year I was fortunate to go riding with my cousin. Having a constant riding companion made it a lot easier to get out each weekend, and he is a super good rider, which made it easy to go places and do some exploring & not have to worry about constantly getting someone unstuck.

I did take some photos and videos this year, but my cousin started a whole YouTube channel for his motorsports activities. Please feel free to check out his channel & subscribe!

First Snowmobile ride of 2021-2022 Winter Season

This year we are VERY low in snowfall (for late December). However, we had enough to go on the trail up Black and some up Baldy (a neighboring mountain). I took the opportunity to take my cousin Sam out, and we were able to get some throttle time, despite not having a lot of snow.

Sam took out the Ski-Doo 850, and I had the maiden voyage of my new Timbersled on a Honda 450x. For those unfamiliar, a Timbersled is a Polaris-owned track kit for dirt bikes to turn them into snow bikes. They are a very different experience from snowmobiles & pretty fun to ride on.

It was also Sam’s first time on a modern/large sled, so hopefully he was able to enjoy it and have a great time as well.
