    Trailer advise

    Our new Blizzard also has the single latch style on both fold down doors. Also had it on my last Blizzard trailer from 12 years ago. They always worked great but I do think the old school style is nice because you can use 2 locks to secure the door where the single latch only has one lockable spot unless you add something custom. The single latch style costs more and make it much harder to build the door but any manufacturer can use them I thought... Anyone running heaters in their trailer? We use a buddy heater attached to a propane cylinder but would like a more permanent setup to have for the pit stops and times when we ride from the trailer.

    Border crossing

    No sense crossing with cannibis if you can just buy it when you get there... Save space in the trailer for cheaper US gas...

    Trailer advise

    Beckers are wicked nice! Prolione has smaller frame than Blizzard, Blizzard aluminum setup is very beefy. We found a better value with Blizzard but they are a mom and pop shop from Northern NY and they are too long of a wait for custom builds than most can accept. Proline has exposed exterior fasteners on the side panels, blizzard does not. Blizzard has the white finished interior with SS kick plates, Blizzard uses the nicer single cam lock for the doors. Just a few reasons why we went with the Blizzard. To each their own and you get what you pay for when you go aluminum...

    Trailer advise

    We updated trailers this year and ordered a new one from Blizzard around the time of the big east snowmobile show. We just picked it up this week as Blizzard is as busy as they have ever been. Right now they are a 12 week wait if you order a new trailer. We sold our 2007 Blizzard 14ft enclosed trailer a few weeks ago so the timing of the new one was perfect for us. The new trailer is 18ft long plus the V so we can get 3 sleds in the trailer if needed. It is all Aluminum frame and Very High Quality Build!! It is also a stagger model so its much easier to see behind you and a breeze to tow...I will say the Blizzard quality is second to none, great quality aluminum materials and workmanship! The main reason why we are buying another from them. This one we had the inside pre-finished, moved the man door and gas doors to the driver side and also the front ramp door to the drivers side which is opposite our last trailer because when you park along the side of a road you cant unload from the passenger side. We ordered it with the spring assist on both doors, you could lift them with a pinky finger... These also come with full length tie down channels on both sides for ease of loading and quick tie down. We added a layer of 1/2" advantek floor sheathing to the new floor to beef it up and protect the factory floor. We also added a Stainless fold down work bench along with a coat rack. We will be adding a few more things like fold down seats, heater and generator quick hookups. Maybe a few cat stickers and posters to make the inside a bit more homey...

    laval sled show pics-2019 sleds

    That blue SRX is baddd assss sharp! Doo's front end looks like it ran in to a wall or something, they are not as sharp as the 16 xrs in my opinion. The doo headlight/windsheild keeps getting closer and closer to the front bumper, eventually their rider forward concept will place the engine completely under the rider.... No Cats in pics but maybe you couldn't see them because most are black and white this year which makes absolutely no sense to me why their graphics are behind the time. All good sleds these days... Some cool new technology introduced.
  9. Wow great day on the trail! Sure miss that route this year I have not been able to get away for more than a few days at a time this year. Maybe march is doable. Anyone know what date Masse shuts down? I know they close up near the mid to end of march and head south before spring fishing season starts up...

    Westbound from Shawinigan

    They do look like cat skis... Looks like the exhaust of a 4 stroke... Must be a pantera or some kind of touring 7000 model because they are touring running boards. They do not look like the arctic cat team clutches so it could be a model that is older than '17 because the 17 and newer had the new style team clutches. Sucks either way, saw a Polaris on fire two weeks ago and it went up FAST!

    Iceman a’ Indy

    Lots of engineering went in to these systems! Looks like fun and more fun to watch them in action. Tell Alain to be careful, red lipstick is very hard to get off....

    2019 ski-doo models released

    I also run the Curve XS, they are a great ski. Went to engineering school with Nick P one of the owners and he set me up right with the Curves XS Skis that have the leading edge and side thrusters. The Curves are superior quality thick plastic and very durable, easy to clean and they look great! The bottom of the Curve has a nice profile (pic 3) to it to help grip the trail rather than most skis with flat bottoms. The side thruster is a very noticeable improvement for cornering and also when riding in loose snow when carbides are not able to dig in... I turn my thrusters over sometimes (shown in pic 2), like this weekend when I was riding on the really hard packed trail but after 3 inches of fresh snow fell I turned them back down and it was a huge difference in being able to keep the front end planted in corners with the fresh loose snow on the trail. The idea of the thruster is that it gives you additional surface area on the outside of the ski to allow the ski to track through the snow rather than slide sideways especially in looser conditions. My dad has had C&A pros on the his last sled and after riding mine with Curves he is now going to Curve once they get more Blue skis in stock. I am considering selling/trading-in my yellow Curves and getting a set of Blue or Green Curves to match the graphics on my new Cross Country Cat.

    Saint-Zenon Week Trip 2/3-2/10

    Nice trip looks like you had a great time. We love the Real Masse, thats where we like to stay, great food, great people and heated garage for sleds. Must have been busy time if the trails were that rough around there.

    Team Iceman report..... trip 2

    Not to hijack but to add further opinion, We run 20s. The battery has been great for us, will last all day unless -20F then you should put unit in pocket for minute when you stop for gas or break. The distance is decent not great but for most scenarios its exactly whats needed and reconnects automatically most of the time other wise just tap you glove to it ant it reconnects when in range. It connects to your phone if you want to listen to music or be on a conference call... Also can adjust settings and connection through the phone app which is nice. The updates are available regularly through the Sena website so the units are always able to be improved as they find new ways.
