10 Commandments of Sledding Style

April 24, 2016 |

The Lord said to Moses, “Come up to me on the mountain and stay here, and I will give you the tablets of stone with the law and commandments I have written for their instruction.”  – Exodus 24:12   … Or something like that. Some of the names and events in the bible are clearly misleading, I believe they spelled ‘C-Dub’ incorrectly throughout the Old Testament, not too sure where they got ‘Moses’ from. Never heard of him. Must have been a spellcheck error. I think ‘camel’ was Read more […]Read More

The Start to my Perfect Day

April 21, 2016 |

The Start To My Perfect Day   Each winter month has its own characteristics that set it apart from the other months. I would have to say that March is one of my favorite months, because it can have a variety of amazing riding conditions that keep you wanting to ride day-after-day. From warm, sunny spring snow while riding just in a hoody, to deep, night-time alpine storms followed by long, cold sunny days; March can have it all.     The start to my perfect day consists Read more […]Read More

Way Back There

April 19, 2016 |

Colin Wallace photo   It was one of those days when you knew it was epic way back there. The last storm cycle was a week ago and all of the easily accessible zones were already paved by sledders. Orion and I knew we had to go deeper into the mountains to get the goods. At the gas station we each filled spare 20s and topped off our tanks to be sure we wouldn’t run out after the day’s roost and total of 90km of cat road. Rolling up to the parking lot, the sun began to crack through Read more […]Read More

Shorter is Funner

April 17, 2016 |

Ron Jeremy doesn’t go snowmobiling very often. But when he does, he whips out his 174” track and starts ramming it into all the nastiest zones. Of course that’s not true. The guy’s a chubby, senior citizen pornstar. And even though he’d fit right in at the Quartz Creek parking lot, the only thing he knows about riding lines in the mountains is snorting cocaine off a stripper’s tits. My point is this: Ron Jeremy would probably suck at snowmobiling, even though he’d be famous Read more […]Read More

The Honey Hole

April 15, 2016 |

Photos by Nick Reedy   The Honey Hole It’s early Friday afternoon and I have had just about enough of work for the week.  While the emails and problems continue to roll in and pile up my mind begins to drift further and further away from my desk.  I glance out the window and gaze longingly at the snowcapped peaks. Tomorrow cannot come soon enough I think as my computer dings with another incoming email alert. It’s a hot day in mid-February. High pressure has ridged out any snowstorms Read more […]Read More

My Experience at Burandt’s Backcountry Adventure

April 13, 2016 | 7

What is it like to ride with the face of backcountry sledding? A friend and I had opportunity to ride with Chris at his location in Buena Vista, Colorado. Here is an account of my experience at Burandt’s Backcountry Adventure.   We were told to arrive at Chris’ shop at 9am. His location is roughly 6 miles north of town on a country road. We were concerned we were on the right road until we saw the unmistakable Monster Energy trailer.     After pulling in the Read more […]Read More

For Love of the Sport

April 11, 2016 |

All images by Brandy Floyd For Love of the Sport My attitude coming into this season has had a bit of a change from that of years past. With the recent rash of bad winters, along with a lot of personal growth and a few small hurdles I have experienced over the last few years, I came into this season with a lot to learn and wanting a bit of redemption. However, let me clarify exactly what I mean by redemption. I came into this season seeking what got me into the sport in the first place—the Read more […]Read More

All In

April 10, 2016 |

All In   Rarely are we content with the chips we have. Everyone wants to double up but only a few can stomach the double down. The facts are that when you go all in, you either win big or you lose big. Great experiences don’t accidentally happen; if you want to put in more days on snow, it’s an active decision. Riding deep powder in breathtaking mountain zones requires you to put things in place, even if you’re not sure if the gamble will pay off. The possibility of failure is very real, Read more […]Read More

Vancouver Island Escape

April 7, 2016 |

The Sled Bum Chronicles: Vancouver Island Escape   Ever since I first began sledding in winter 2008, my obsession with exploring and adventure has been fulfilled. Sledding has ruined mountain biking, snowboarding and many other similar outdoor sports for me as none of them can top the rush of riding a snowmobile—and the freedom from singletrack trails and lift lines. The snow-caked mountains of BC have provided endless terrain and some of the deepest powder I could possibly imagine.     As Read more […]Read More
