What is your favorite Ski-Doo model of all time?
This is a hard one for me! I am an old school junky, so I love the classics. But in reality, the 2022 Freeride 154 Turbo! The factory turbos have seriously changed how fun backcountry riding is. Although, I’m sure my new favorite model Is going to be the 2023 Freeride 154 Turbo!
What’s the most fun you’ve ever had on a sled?
I feel each year I find a new “most fun I’ve ever had on a sled” moment! However, when I was a kid, all of my cousins and I would always be at the ranch and my grandparents had several snowmobiles. All of us would ride every single day there from the time chores were done until 3-4 in the morning! So many laughs, spills and thrills came from those days.
My most embarrassing moment on a sled is?
I mean none of us have embarrassing moments on sleds, right? In reality, it’s a nearly everyday occurrence with Jay Mentaberry and me. The one I recall most was at a race at Grand Targhee Resort. It was my first race on a mod and I was beyond excited. So excited that I crashed before the starting lights... but, I did recover and managed to make a good run!
What is your must-have item or accessory for every ride?
1. Professionally speaking, my avalanche gear and a lighter.
2. LinQ tunnel bag so you can carry all the goods!
What’s your favorite meal on a sled?
A Daniel Delight burrito from a little gas station here in Pinedale. I always have my aluminum foil because there is nothing better than a side panel cooked burrito!
What do you love about BRP?
The passion that BRP has for the sport and their desire to strive to deliver and share their highest quality product and experiences every year. I have high expectations of myself but always want to keep it light and fun and I see that same trait in BRP.
