    We always enjoy riding in the bowls near Lincoln, MT in the spring. The Polaris chassis has made a huge change in how I ride, I am no longer limited to going straight up, but can cut a sidehill and carve at will even in firm snow conditions with much less effort than any other chassis I have ridden. We would have had new footage from a week ago but we had so much fun carving up the bowls that we never even got the video camera out! Spring riding in Montana is hard to beat!

    Greetings Polaris, As a dedicated Polaris snowmobiler I do have a full appreciation of what I believe it takes to accomplish total terrain domination. The riding I do is often a mix of deep snow filled ditches, mogul lined trails, tight twisting wooded trails along with straight as an arrow corridor running. Without hesitation I can say that after owning only Polaris sleds from my first '70 Polaris TX Playmate to my 2012 Switchback Pro-R each has always maxed out the fun meter in dominating the terrain every time I go sledding. Conquering the hostile winter landscape of ice and snow is easy when you ride a sled that has a tireless engine, the best handling capabilities, the most technically advanced suspension, and futuristic looks to boot. All these features adds up to incredible excitement on the trail, which you will see when you view my video. Enjoy the riding action clips of myself ditch banging aboard my Polaris IQ as well as corridor trail running on my Rush.

    My moment of terrain domination came back in December 2009. That April, my mother passed away from an instant heart attack. At the time, I was a freshman at college supporting myself financially and basically left alone after her passing. I have been riding nothing but Indy’s since I was three years old. My first sled I bought was a 1999 Polaris Indy XC 700. Snowmobiling was the only thing that allowed me to leave every worry behind. At such a young age, it really hit me hard being on my own. I had to sell my snowmobile that year to help pay for expenses of my mother’s as well as mine. The moment of domination I experienced was on my last ride and thinking about all the good memories my mom and I shared. I still have not dominated the terrain since but I am worthy because I represent what a pure Polaris rider is all about and have done so with class. My mother would want me to keep riding but my priorities are holding me back. Let me show the world what true Indy rider is all about.

    My Indy 500 has over 11,000 miles on it and is stock except for a 1.35" Cobra track and CnA Pro skies. In this video it is piloted by my nephew Chris. It's hard to pick just one Moment of Terrain Domination so I put together a bunch of small clips that show how this little sled does an awsome job in the deep snow. On the trip in which the video was comprised, Chris was accompanied by one mountain sled and two crossover sleds. In the first clip Chris and the Indy descend into a small ravine already trenched up by others in our group; there also was a fallen tree that they have to go over. The Indy makes it over with ease, while the crossover behind them (me) was unable to make it over the tree. The rest of the clips speak for themselves, keeping in mind we were in four plus feet of snow.

    Through my 20 plus years of riding Polaris snowmobiles there have been many moments of terrain domination, but none more done with my family, especially on the Indy brand of snowmobiles. Back when the Indy brand ruled the trails we owned two Indy sports, an Indy lite, two Indy trails and three consecutive snow check Indy 500s. The first snowmobile for our family, an Indy sport, was purchased by my mom in 1989. Once I received my snowmobile license my first sled was an Indy lite and I couldn't wait to get out in the yard on it during the first snow fall. Then there was my first Indy 500. I still remember the day when we unloaded it off the pickup after purchasing it. Many miles were put on my Indy 500s throughout the years, but once the Indy brand went away I moved up to the Edge 600. My family and I, still to this day, ride Polaris' and are looking forward to the day when we can return to the trails on the Indy brand and with the iconic name returning that could become a reality.

    I spent my first 5 years of sledding riding a 2000 XCR 800. I loved having the fastest sled around but after all those miles the suspension was just worn out. The last year I owned it I was in pain after every weekend riding. I found myself not enjoying sledding as much. So rather than fix it I bought a 2009 dragon 800 SP. It is powerful, handles like a dream and is the most comfortable sled I have ever been on. Every one I ride with rides a ski-doo and my sled now out performs all their sleds in every category. If the season wasn't so short I would have a video of drag racing the ski-doos i ride with but this will have to do. pulling the ski's on a stock dragon 800

    I'm currently deployed oversea's, but I set my leave for Febuary hoping to get in some sledding during prime spring snow conditions. So I saved up some cash, and bought the wife a 2008 600 HO 144" to upgrade her sled, since she likes the looks of the IQ. Fast forward a few months and im home, with very little snow, but we set out for a day of riding while the kids were in school. Included is a short video of me playing in a meadow in NW MT. Just snowchecked my 13 PRO, so this would be for her, and ill give the 600 to my oldest duaghter! Chic sledders ROCK.

    This is the first year I've owned a Polaris sled. I had owned Ski-Doo brands, but I decided to buy a second hand '93 Classic single seat in November. It looked like it was in good shape, needed a few fixes, some cosmetic improvements, nothing major. My prior snowmobiles were just something to get around on, but now I had the time/money to make this one look and feel how I wanted it. I replaced old idler wheels, added a new windshield, bar hooks, studded the track, added some coloured trim, and made many other improvements. It's the first sled I've actually been proud of, and the first one I truly feel is mine. They say the first year you buy a new sled you barely get any snow - well that was the case this year. We only had one good month in PEI, but for the few hours I spent on the trails I put 50+ hours in the garage working on it. In the future when I decide upgrade to a new Polaris, I'll be keeping my '93. I'd never get a price to make up for the time and effort put into MY Indy.

    I was able to take advantage of a perfect day in January with a Terrain Dominator (R) friend. We arrived early, the snow was perfect, the weather was blue-bird. I made a bad move while side hilling and ended up as shown...stuck. I ended up going directly straight down, forced to use my newly learned side-hilling techniques to go to the left around the trees. It was one of the first times I had the confidence to do this maneuver. Being "forced" to push your limits is what I love about the sport. It will never get boring learning to TERRAIN DOMINATE! My Polaris 800 Pro is the perfect instrument to do so!

    This video is of my son riding his sled on Flotten lake. He wanted a video of him carving the powder so i took one. He loves riding Polaris sleds because they look and perform very well and for him, they are light. He would like a newer, more flickable/light sled and the new indy would be perfect.

    We found a beautiful patch of untouched snow just 45 minutes out of Anchorage, AK. One of my riding buddies (cat guy) took a pull on another buddies '12 Pro RMK and buried it trying to turn out in one of the steepest spots on the hill. He got a short video of me coming up to help him dig out.

    So it all started out as a nice day in Cooke City, Montana and we'd been riding finding meadows, hills ,tree lines, and what not. We come to this small meadow untouched with a lot of trees around it. So we tear up the meadow boondocking and stuff and I see this little opening to the right. So I tell my friend (who is my partner for tree riding) that we should hit this line. So we start off with a sidehill right away and we end up going down a little hill still in a sidehill. To our right was a cliff drop and to our left was a straight up and down cliff and we couldn't turn around because it was 4-5 feet deep and my friend was on a 141 long track. So I keep creeping slowly to see whats ahead of us. All I see is a small opening for a sled and it looks like a drop with a bunch of trees at the bottom. So I said "What the Heck" Brand new sled hope I don't destroy it. So I creep to the edge and look over and see its not a cliff drop (Thank god). So I start going down it on one ski because to my left is a sidehill which was the way out, if I went straight it would go into a pocket of trees. So I'm creepin down and I plant my foot to slow it down going down this hill and my foot goes into a hole. It was part of the cliff, so I'm up chest deep in snow hangin onto my sled with no feet on it to keep it for going down in the trees. I did this bout three more times but luckily I got to the point where I could start sidehilling. So I started the Sidehill and my back end starts washing out and all I could think was "Don't get stuck, please don't get stuck". So I'm pushin with my foot and pinning the sled and I'm going into thick trees and I could here my friend pinned behind me and I hoped he wouldn't get stuck because the only way to get him would be walking. Finally we do a little sidehill through the trees and were back into a meadow. Me and my friend look at eachother and couldn't believe what happened, we high fived and talked about that line the rest of thr trip.

    It started on a beautiful Saturday morning. Woke up and heard the birds chirping and with the view of the snow covered peaks of Cumbres Pass in my window. One thought came to mind like always; which of course, is snowmobiling. I went and got ready for an awesome day and loaded my boys' sleds along with my own and set off to the mountains of Cumbres. We Unloaded the sleds and set off on a fun powder day. My boys and i shredded powder all day long on our Polaris machines which were of course doing a tremendous job. We came across a hill that was indeed very steep but also powdery. As we were sitting in the bottom, two Arctic Cats rolled up. They tried climbing the hill and tragically failed. Being the guy i am, i decided to brag a little on my POLARIS, so i started it up first pull. I took a deep breath and gave my sled a little gas and then put the throttle to the bar and off i went. I started up the base of the hill and my POLARIS was pulling hard and climbing like there was no hill at all. The skis never touched as I flew over the top of the hill. I returned to the bottom and as I did so the Arctic Cats pulled over and told us "Wow that sled has to have a modified engine." I simply replied "Actually, its just a stock 800." The man's mouth dropped open and said "Ill rethink my next sled purchase and keep POLARIS in mind." Roughly a month later, we came across this individual at the parking lot and we spoke for awhile and I asked him how his Arctic Cat was doing and he simply replied "I purchased a 2011 POLARIS Pro-RMK, and it is absolutely the most amazing sled I've ever ridden." I shook my head and said "you'll never consider another sled, a POLARIS is all you need." This was one of the best feelings i ever had because i converted a person to a POLARIS. Truthfully, a POLARIS is the best sled out there and i will NEVER choose anything else.

    I grew up in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, putting mile after mile on my Mini-Z as I chased around my dad's tracks in the mountains. A change had me sledless for over ten years, when I was able to make my way to the Rockies and get a taste of what I've been missing. That's when I went all out and picked up my Pro. The feeling of my 125lb body being able to throw around the lightest and most flickable sled on the market in the back country was a great feeling. The ability to hunt the back country and chase untouched powder in the beautiful terrain instantly gave me the feeling of my youth, being there with my dad. Although the sleds have advanced unbelievably over a decade, the thought that my Pro could take me to a place where I could uncover my sledding childhood that were unknowingly etched in to memories, is priceless. When I'm carving new terrain, surrounded by the freedom and tranquility of the mountains on my Pro, there is nothing else in that moment that matters. The opportunity to ride a Polaris has revamped the urge for thrill, and only 'powder can cure this itch'. This continuous countdown until the next time I get to throw my leg over my Pro and experience it all over again, that is my Moment of Domination.

    I ride with a group of 5 mostly in southern Colorado. My moment of terrain domination was earlier this year was a momnet when we came up against a steep slope littered with trees and very soft snow. There was no way to get to where we needed to go but to go straight up or go back the way we came and not reach our destination. The crew looks to me to break the trail. Im the only one riding a Polaris. There is two 2012 Proclimb 800s in the mix and a Summit XP 800. I knew it was going to be a challenge for me but decided to chance it. I took off up the off camber slope littered with trees and absoutly made a beautiful carve pattern on the steep side hill to make it over the top to the mouth of the destination. As a turned around to go back and tell the group we could make it. I found that they had tryed to follow and were all four littered across the hill stuck. :) I had to smile ....then go help them get out! I was the only one who made it so we had to turn around and go back but it wasnt because me and my Pro RMK were the weak link....that would be the furthest from the truth.

    Took my first mountain trip this winter to Cooke City Montana. I was pretty nervous considering the hardest riding I have done is on the trails. I was going to a place where the trails are few and far between. I had just bought my sled and never got a chance to use because of the odd winter we are having with no snow. We pulled up to the mountain at 4 a.m. and parked in a parking lot about 9 miles from the town and had to ride snow packed roads in, it was pitch dark so I had no idea what my surrounding looked like. My friends pulled in at 8:30 a.m. after driving all night so we put on our gear and headed out. The view was amazing but the sled felt better, we got on the mountain and it felt like I have owned the sled for years. The handling was unbelievable, the sled made it easy to put all of my trust into it. I was riding through 5 feet of powder the whole weekend and only got stuck once. It was nice not having to worry about sled problems and in this case the sled made the trip perfect and the mountains were just a bonus.

    This is not one of the most extrodinary moments you'll ever catch on photo, but it does show the power of a bare bones stock polaris 600 motor. I was out riding with the boys, all on 800's besides myself, so i had to ride it harder than them and had to prove the sled and myself. This is just a photo of me standing er up showing off the polaris power and the big monster energy sticker o the bellt pan, hope you enjoy!
