redgreen,
I didn't want to hi-jack the other thread, but I noticed where you are from. Recognize this pic??
We took the water ferry across the harbour and went out for dinner on that little island (I can't remember the name of the place). We had a great time and the food was pretty good too.

The high risein the top picture is the Beacon at Cameron Island the pub is the Dingy Dock Pub on Protection Island nice spot the people on the island get around in golf carts I think it's the only place in B.C. were they are allowed on the roads. Are those snowmobile tracks in the bottom picture I've heard about that area before.

redgreen,
Thanks, Protection Island...that's the name.

Yes, that was last spring at Crows Nest Pass sledding. If you ever have the opportunity to go sledding or ATV'ing there, I would highly recommend the area. It's amazing!! :)

Snowy, the pic of the Crows Nest Pass is great. Did you drive your own machine up there? That's one big climb! My brother moved north of Prince George 25 years ago and loves the snowmobiling in the Rockies. He doesn't bother to bring his machine when he comes back home, us "Flat Landers" are too boring :) !

I know what your brother is saying we used to go to Revelstoke the guys that ride there are crazy never seen machines that go that well in deep powder or climb that high scary stuff myself I prefer the flat lands. By the way thanks for the photos of the rebuild of your camper helped me make the decision for mine a lot easier.

Hi Red, glad you found a TC. Hope you didn't have to break out the "Duct Tape" for it. :)
My brother knows the Revelstoke area well. He says that he finds the Chetwynd area even wilder. He has outrun an avalanch already and dug out a few friends(alive) even. That's a little to crazy for this Flat Lander :)
Enjoy the Citation
Mike

Kodiak, Doug went for a 4 day excursion last spring and met up with some people we had met the previous fall when we were there ATVing. One of the guys was the head of the search and rescue team in CNP, so I wasn't all that worried until I saw some of the pics. (He rented his sled there). I guess it's like any other sport, although some are more riskier than others.
This is a pic of "hi-marking"...not too smart, as this is what causes avalanches, if the conditions are proper.

This pic is on a mountain top somewhere in Crows Nest.

And my husband showing how it's done... :)

Woow that's some serious climbing Snowy. The perch on top of the Crow had to be a long ways down and it looks like Doug is teetering on the edge..life on the edge :D .
Looks like fun if the machine can handle it!
