From there we went up the River to the old Onion Lake Dam, which isn't there anymore and then up to Barnum lake road, across to Sunday lake and back to Dog lake road. The 50 mile ride was full of crazy adventure, breaking trail and weaving around open area's on the river. One sled broke thru the ice but we managed get it out before it sank. Along the way I managed to hit a jump crooked and landed on my side. The whole trip was about 3 hours long, so I chopped it up and made a 20 minute video of the ride, hope it's not too long for ya! Enjoy! Sled breaking thru the ice is at 8:40 and crash is at 15:45.


Hey Lappeman - I was just traveling along the Current River a couple of days ago too. On snowshoes though. We walked right up on top of where the rapids normally run - had to dodge open water patches in places too. Thanks for the video. Somehow I think I missed the crash?
