So I'm seriously thinking about getting into this. Anyone know who would be the best person/place to contact about it? Where you can go and where you can maybe test drive one?

Thanks for any info. Happy new year everyone!

Plus, they can ride across the face of a slope.... Sleds can flip on em
that's true.

both sleds and snowbikes have there place on the mountain two different sports in my eyes

I cant tell you in 6ft of baseless powder I was riding circles around my friends on sleds over xmas in the kootenays

big selling point is I can ride my bike in the summer as well

That looks like waaaay too much fun. And less chance of dislocated shoulders!

If you put that on a plated bike you could run around the city streets during a Vancouver snowpocalypse.

You don't need brakes. The trick is to wait till the roads are impassible for cars.

Not to date myself but back when in big snowstorms in Winnipeg the city would allow sleds on regular streets once they were snowed over. It was a surreal trip going through a silent urban wasteland.

Talk to the guys at holeshot in parts, someone rents them so you can go out for a day and try it.

Being from Winnipeg myself, I often think back to how much fun those days were. Total free for all......

HaHaHa.....ditto!
A buddy and I rode our '78 TXL's into town from Headingley to a party near Stafford and Mulvey one Saturday night!......Cops chased us all over the city afterwards....Eventually hid from them behind a BFI bin at the Grant Hotel parking lot!!.........Then scooted back home straight down Grant Avenue!...
Ahhhhh, the good ole' daze!.... ;-)

Those things would be hopeless next to a sled in the mountains and sleds can sidehill great. That being said they look killer in the trees where the treewells aren't big and the slopes aren't too steep. Unless the idea was trails and dual duty, I'd bite the bullet and get a sled.

Ok, grab yourself a sled.. and I'll grab a snowbike, and we'll see if you can follow me. Obviously you haven't tried one, I'm 100% sure if you had that this comment wouldn't have been made.
