Snowmobile every year.

Chama area is beautiful...and across the state line to Pagosa Springs are several snomobile rental places .... also huge population of Elk and deer.

But my favorite place by far is the city of West Yellowstone, Montana....snowmobile capital of the world...there are at least 20 snowmobile dealerships in the little town...and 20+ Best Western Hotels mostly dedicated to snowmobilers. I have been in Yellowstone Park many times but quite riding there many years ago... Best place to ride is across the state line into Idaho to a place called Two Top Moutain. Snowmobile Rental place in West Yellowstone, Montana is "Randy's Snowmobile Rental.

Randy's can give you directions (map) to Two Top Mountain...about 110 miles round trip...usually Randy's is about $85 a day for rental. Two Top is a pretty challenging trail but unbelievably scenic...but watch out for the moose.

I agree but I don't makeup the rules. I also don't know the rules. So I can stop and ask if you like.

I wouldn't buy one.

But I'll take one for free:

Forty bucks in parts, and it runs.

I spent years sledding in the Mountains of BC. It is the kind of sport that people try a couple times and quit because all they do is get stuck. But when you stick with it and become a proficient mountain rider, there is no better sport on earth. I couldnt begin to describe the rush and enjoyment the sport can bring. Motorcycling is a different experience but in my books it cant top snowmobiling, mountain sledding that is. Watching people riding around on the trail makes me wanna puke. Those of you that have done it know what I mean.

I was skiing in Jakcson Hole one year and took a day off to snowmobile up in Moran. We took a guided all day trip on a couple of new Polaris Trail sleds. It was great.

I live in NH but the snow has become so rare that I don't own a sled. I would if we had regular snow though.

A few years ago we did a 1/2 day guided tour to Greenie Peak out of Red River. It was fun and once we were near Greenie Peak they let us rip in a large bowl area. Red River is nice because you can alpine ski, snowmobile, or xc ski at Enchanted Forest. Enchanted Forest is the best nordic ski facility in NM when they get decent snow.

You gotta have a sled in northern Ontario. Mine is a '04 Skidoo Skandic 600. I don't ride groomed trails either and thats why I got a machine with a long wide track and agressive paddles. It will go through the lake slush that I used to dread with a lesser machine. Its got a two speed transmission with a reverse gear which comes in handy. Its a heavy sled and you can't hoist it around like the old Tundra I had before.

I have a 98 Artic Cat ZR580 EFI sitting in my garage.
That is right, I live in Phoenix, AZ and have a sled in my garage.
I bought it back when I lived in Laramie, and the resale value is so dismal, I just can't bring myself to get rid of it.

First sled was the Sno-Jet star jet

Then a Ski-Doo Olympique

The last sleds I rode were Polaris Ultra SPX triple Cyl 700cc

and the XC

They didn't belong to me, but my buddy had 2 and we always swapped back and forth. I rode the XC mostly as it was his spare.

I miss snowmobiling

Anyone in the NE want to do an adventure ...slide... this winter? Meet somewhere up north, then sled it for a few hundred miles, camping and tearing up the trails?

BYOS - Bring your own sled.
