Epic Snowmobile Adventure
EPIC SNOWMOBILE ADVENTURE: MIDWEST MEETS MOUNTAINS
After months of discussions and planning, I am excited to announce that I will be embarking on the adventure of a lifetime as I travel from Ontario, Canada to join experience freerider Stephanie Santeford on the Big Mountains of the Western United States!
American Snowmobiler Magazine will publish an article about the trip in the November 2015 Getaway Guide, and there will be extensive online coverage via social media pages and blogs, using the official hashtag #BRAAP2015 for the adventure.

The adventure is expected to focus primarily on increasing awareness about avalanche safety, in addition to educating beginner riders about the differences between trail riding and mountain riding, as well as promoting mountain riding in the west.

Van Amburg Enterprises has graciously provided the “Pink Hawk” snowmobile, which was part of the Sledchix Sled Build featured in Sledheads Magazine, for use during the trip. The 2014 Polaris RMK Pro was built by ten female Freestyle Riders in two days, and serves as the perfect vessel for this adventure.
Over the course of a two-week period, I will travel from Seattle, Washington to Halfway, Oregon to participate in the 15th Annual Ladies Ride organized by sponsored freerider, Brandy Floyd. From there, I will then travel to Sandpoint, Idaho to participate in the Driven Event facilitated by Sledchatter.com and including Avalanche Training by Mike Duffy from Avalanche1, and Skills Workshop taught by Brett Rasmussen.
A HUGE THANKS TO THE SPONSORS WHO ARE SUPPORTING THIS PROJECT!
