Snowmobiles

Have or do you snowmobile? I've had the pleasure of doing it once North of Flagstaff. We rented some Polaris Indy750's and had a blast. Anyone know where to rent some sleds in Northern New Mexico?

I have a Polaris 500 indy classic. I love it. If you ride, you will love snowmobiles.

Last time I rode a snowmobile, I was three years old and I fell off and now I have a scare on my chin.

I owned one of the first Triple Indys. Before that I had triple brutes.

Toas cycle works sells sleds. http://www.taoscycleworks.com/

Angle fire Resort might

Other than that check Chamma.

But to be honest there really isn't enough snow right now.

Oh I know that there are some renters that operate near the top of Wolf Creek pass. From the looks of it you pay some money that they give you a ride. But they might let you take one out.

From the looks of things I am going to Wolf Creek on Saturday. Do you want me to stop and get some info for you? I will be driving right past these guys.

My father-in-law and brother-in-law ride. It consists of riding through the woods, at night, 3/4 jacked-up, as fast as you can go. Kind of fun, but an accident waiting to happen.

Plus these things cost around 7,000 bucks now for something that you have to haul to the snow, since it never snows enough around here anymore.

I'd like to rent one, but to have someone take me for a ride is:ymca.

This kept up with the Indy 600 triples effortlessly. My friend wanted to race me through a trail in the woods and across some feilds. It was actually a good run. I had the sled sideways around a corner and the track caught the dirt underneith and pitched me off. I jumped back on, caught up to my friend just before it opened to a feild then i blew past.

My uncle cold seized the engine 2 years ago. Now its been re-sleeved and rebuilt and tuned. Its back and better then ever.

I hang with 800s all the time and never have troubles keeping up, plus i get twice the economy.

I have trails that lead from my parents back year (where i keep the sled)
so i don't have to haul it. unfortunatly there was 4 days i could have used it last year. damn climate change

We go to CO every year to sled.

There's a bunch of trails (several hundred miles of them) between Sunlight and Powderhorn.

There used to be a lodge midway, accessible only by snowmobile in winter, ATV or dirt in summer (but I've never been there via dirt in summer), that had fuel, food, and bunks for those into extended play. Unfortunately, the lodge exploded (propane leak) and killed some of the family that owned/ran it.

I'll give you a heads up next time we go.
