I thought I would share some pics I took of my snowmobiling trip this weekend. The first day, I forgot my camera, and we went up Catherine Creek, near Union Oregon.

Today we went up to Tollgate ski area, near Elgin, Oregon. Beautiful day for snowmobiling.


Snow at the Sno-park -



Me on my older snowmobile -



Me screwing off -



This hill would be fun in an inner-tube -




Top of the mountain -



Snowstorm coming in -




And here is a video fo me jumping that weak little jump -

It was a pretty good day, but both places I went this weekend werent all that great. I just wanted to try some other places than where I usually go (Normally I go to Brundage Idaho, or Mt. Bachelor, in Bend).

Yep. I have a brand new Arctic Cat M8 162" that I bought this year, but this older sled hasnt been used in a while, and I try go use it at least 3 times a season. The old one is an 02 Mountain Cat 800, no EFI, 151" track.

It actually has some advantages to my new one. The M8 might be able to climb just about anything, but this one can turn on a dime (compared to the new one at least).

What the hell are those things? Funny skids out front and a big rubber track?

We go out about once a year and locate overdue folks on snow machines. We have a pack of flares attached to a huge streamer that we drop and they use to signal the helo when we dispatch it.

That hill would be uber-fun on a snowboard.

Ya it's pretty snowy up in the hills and mountians.

I tried to go shooting on sunday and the snow wouldn't allow it.

Ski-Doo and Polaris are the sleds that are always breaking and are pieces of shit, not Arctic Cats


Yamaha belongs to that POS club too.
