I Found This Oddly Compelling by Lou Dawson October 12, 2011 written by Lou Dawson October 12, 2011 Is the technique you’ve got to gun it while in the air after the ramp? Anyone know the details of how to make this work? With global warming and all, I’m thinking the techniques could be useful for backcountry skiing access. 14 comments 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail previous post GU Gu GU Gu GU Gu GU Gu GU Gu next post Some Colorado Love : CAIC Benefit Bash Announced 14 comments Andrew October 12, 2011 - 9:43 am What’s weird about that video is there is nobody else at the lake. I wonder why? It seems like a good place to shoot guns, burn car tires, blow stuff up and dump garbage. dongshow October 12, 2011 - 9:55 am some good ak summer fun, fantastic find Chris October 12, 2011 - 12:01 pm Why not just buy a jetski? If you want to destroy something, at least keep the snowmo for winter time Lou October 12, 2011 - 12:50 pm I like the idea of my one 2-stroke recreation device doing it all. Do they make a chainsaw attachment? Andy October 12, 2011 - 2:52 pm Lou, in some of the lumberjack competitions they have had chainsaws with snowmobile engines. They cut through wood like butter. I am surprised someone of those guys landed the jump, pretty difficult. Being a snowmobiler myself, I have to say it makes me cringe seeing some of the stuff people do on sleds. I can only imagine what fluids leak in the water when they sink. 🙁 marolt October 12, 2011 - 2:56 pm I wonder how long it will be before guys take their sleds to the white water of the rivers. Who will be the first to sled the grand, ha? Let that seed take to earth…….. Norqski October 12, 2011 - 3:23 pm For years they used to have snowmo water races here in Alaska on Big Lake. Not just drag racing either, ovals! Not sure how many ended up at the bottom of the lake over the years…. I think they always retrieved them at least. Lou October 12, 2011 - 3:25 pm I’d imagine that with a nice long cleated track and big skis, it’s not all that tough to go on water. Ben R October 12, 2011 - 8:03 pm I saw a vid a while back of a guy barefoot waterskiing behind a snowmobile. Toys. Lou October 15, 2011 - 6:28 am We deleted the vid embed by accident, can’t remember where it was on Youtube, anyone have the link? Thanks, Lou Dave October 15, 2011 - 10:37 am http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhEJTaHMBOU Lou October 16, 2011 - 6:27 pm Thanks Dave! I fixed, we’ll see how it goes. Having some problems with our software inadvertently deleting stuff when we edit. David October 31, 2012 - 7:06 am While neutral on snowmobile BC access, I think this is pushing it… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBajhhTnqCE Lou Dawson October 31, 2012 - 7:49 am Thanks David, I think someone had reminded me about that a while ago, but it slipped through the cracks during last winter’s busy travel season. I just made a blog post out of it, as this could be one of the most controversial yet useful things to come along for backcountry skiers facing access issues such as lengthy snow-covered roads already used by snowmobiles.
