These guys are crazy. I remeber the first sledneck vid I saw. It was playing as I walked through main lodge at mammoth. I though it was fake. Those people scare me

P420 - I thought you'd have a sled for this season. These guys do ride up some stuff that I know I'd be a little nervous riding down.


I was a little hoping this thread would pull out some split/sled people to ride with this season. Sled base camps, boondocking, splitting the good stuff.

Bring on the SNOW!

I have been slowly priming the wife for a sled. Its a tough sell. Not a lot of sled owners down here. I have to butter her up with visions of christmas like trail rides and wine and cheese at the end. I though she was gonna buy a jet ski, but we rented some and the trill is gone on that ...so the sled moves up a notch.

There are over 200 miles of groomed trails between Mammoth and June Lakes. They are kept in top notch condition. You can drive right up to the main lodge area and grab a hot toddy. I don't know any other LA area sledders either; trying to lure a couple in. :D The sleds came up on a whim and I went for it. Let me know when and I'll stash the wine and cheese at an undisclosed latitude and longitude for you.

I've done the jet ski/sea doo thing...kind of boring in comparison to the boat.

Eco...when is soccer season over?

I thought you were still in limbo, wasn't sure I was worthy.
Not sure about leaving them with you...but you know I'd drag 'em up for a trip. No chute climbing though, I don't know how those clowns can afford to replace their sled every year. :shock:

You guys are a bunch of hooors. :P Didn't your mothers tell you not to accept rides from strangers? Not that I wouldn't. Hey p420 - How much beer can you load on that donkey?

I got him from Juan Valdez...the old Juan , not the new Juan. So with that said he will only move with a bag of coffee on his back. So we can stack the coffee on one side and the beer on the other. Im trying to get a pair of crampons for him as we speak
