Right away, the Boondocker has a special feeling for a mountain sled. Something versatile, something that can do it all. The suspension handles like no other mountain sled. No matter the day, terrain, or snow conditions, this snowmobile is going to be an absolute blast to ride! And on a practical level, I'm a fan of all the storage accessories too – my sled needs tons of storage. Avalanche gear, tools, first aid, communications and survival gear are always priority number one. Things can happen fast out there and if you’re not properly trained or prepared it's a recipe for disaster.
My dad got me hooked from a young age, we had a family cabin, which meant I had a great introduction to riding. As soon as I was old enough to ride a full-size sled, it was game over, I knew what I wanted to do from a very young age! Nowadays, I’m 100% mountain rider through and through. The freedom of not being confined to a trail combined with all the feelings of moto and snowboarding. A good day on a snowmobile is unlike anything else.
My six years guiding in the backcountry embody sisu. From fixing sleds in the backcountry to riding in the pouring rain all day, it feels like I’ve seen it all. But as a mountain guide, it’s right when you think you’ve seen it all that something new pops up. That’s why I love snowmobiling. Catch me in the steep trees pulling technical lines one day and the next rolling up to find jumps, pillows cliffs and anything that allows me to get in the air. Either that or some sort of self-inflicted carnage that means we spend the rest of the day trying to get back to the top of a ridge. Whatever the terrain has to offer, I’m there for it!
