What’s the most fun you’ve ever had on a sled?
I feel like every year I have a ‘best day ever’ on the sled. Those days where it is deep, stable and you have a group of fellow riders that can go anywhere and have each other’s back. The machines are purring and it’s a fluid, cushioned, press up to elevation, greeting the morning sunup on top of the destination. That is living.
What motivates you to be an Ambassador?
20 years ago, I took my X-Games winnings and invested in myself in the form of a new snowmobile purchase, a Summit 800. This iron horse has been a staple of how I get to work in the mountains. The snowmobile has been such an essential tool for most any backcountry aficionado and with how incredible they continue to become; these dream machines are a joy for not just transportation and accessibly. There are plenty of days where the ride out and back are better than the snowboarding I do in between. I am thrilled to be an ambassador as I both continue to have opinions on how these machines can be improved for the specific use case I prefer, while also believing that Ski-Doo specifically will continue to be on the cutting edge of what the future holds for improvements and radical upgrades to the platform! I want to be a part of this and am honored to be a part of such a progressive brand.
What is your must-have item or accessory for every ride?
A thermos of soup or hot beverage.
What’s your favorite meal on a sled?
Hot Dogger heated burritos!
What do you love about BRP?
That somehow, it just keeps getting better and better! From sleds to side-by-sides to Sea-Doo watercraft. It gives unbridled access to play and work immersed in the wildest conditions.
