Casey, I have to back RDNEK on this one. The thread was about which sled would work for a given usage. It had nothing to do with someone else's opinion of whether or not it should be "correct". If you want to dis sled usage, feel free to start your own thread. On this site, which is read very often by environmentally aware people, any moto topic seems to degrade into an argument about people's opinions on motor usage. Its called a hijacking since someone steers it away from the intended path and it is not cool. It may be fun to read written sparring, but is is also a waste of time for readers who want to get info or contribute a meaningful opinion. Sometimes a good natured jest is welcomed though. Just my 2 cents.

I have two 1996 Arctic Cat trail sleds that I bought at an auction a couple of years ago. Just came down from Vail Pass where we had some fun freshies all morning. Stock trail tread sucks for snomo skiing, am changing out to 2" paddles and 1.75" deep tread on one sled since I could find it used on Craig's list. It is a learning curve, but a fun way to get around the backcountry, and yes, you will get sneers at best from holier than though types who judge you by your sled. Oh well, the turns are sweet.

I attached 6" PVC pipe to drop the skis into on the side of the sled and designed a steel cage for the back of the sleds to stow packs when riding in/out. Had metalwork done for $75/sled by a guy who does steel fabricating, then use straps to hold skis in place against the side of the cages, with tails of skis in PVC so that they angle up at 45 degrees.

Brad, I was checking out skandics online and they look pretty good for tow in access. I was put off by the low horsepower numbers though. I think it was 67 hp for the 800 four stroke. Could it be that low and does yours seem to have enough power to double up riders and pull two?
