Easy to Install ArcticFx Graphics Kit

When a buddy encouraged me to get sticker kit from ArcticFx Graphics , my first thoughts were 'Fine, but how am I going to put that on without messing it up, I can't do that...or can I?' So I decided to drop over one night and give my buddy a hand installing a kit on his new SledAddicts RMK Assault. It was alot easier than I expected and after we finished the job I felt confident I could do this on my own anytime.

When you think about it, custom graphics kits are a great way to personalize your sled and for 200 to 300 bucks you can make your sled look pretty awesome and unique. The whole idea seems to be really catching on and more people are into a custom look these days. I think this is very important, no different than the choice of music you like or clothes you wear. Your Snowmobiles look could be a reflection of your personality or riding style. Do you want a clean, straight line look?, or an edgy darker type of style? It's all about you, and ArcticFxGraphics.com has every look imaginable. [More]

Little Bear Lodge - Extreme Snowmobiling Launch Point

Here on "The Rock" snow has been scarce throughout most of the Island with the exception of a few key areas. One of of those snowmobile playgrounds is the infamous backcountry located in and around Newfoundlands Gros Morne National Park.

The impression I've been getting from snowmobile enthusiasts is they cannot wait to get their first ride in for the season, and are looking for any option to get them on the snow to relieve themselves of their addicting snowmobile adrenaline.

If you are in that predicament, you should do yourself a favor and book a week of accomodations at the Little Bear Lodge, nestled convienently on the outskirts of Gros Morne National Park on Bonne Bay Big Pond, Newfoundland , Canada.

Little Bear Lodge is an executive
style chalet located on the
beach of beautiful Bonne Bay
Big Pond just 20kms north of the
town of Deer Lake on the great
Northern Peninsula of
Newfoundland. [More]

In this article, the rookie delves into the decision to buy new or used, as he discovers the simple law of depreciation... here's what he has to say; I came up wth a method that I want to share with you all.

I simply apply these questons to my own situation and the end result is the sled that I want. Think of those autotrader.com commercials with the huge racks of cars.

Chris Burandt Pilots Polaris's 800 Assualt RMK

Chris Burandt, X-games Gold Medalist, Slednecks rider, and owner/tour guide of Burandts Backcountry Adventure, and unquestionably one of the most well rounded extreme snowmobile riders ever is officially piloting Polaris for the 2010 season.
The thought of seeing what chaos Chris will create on the hills aboard the Assualt had me heading to my local Polaris dealer, The Parts Center Ltd. , here in Corner Brook, Newfoundland & Labrador, to have another look at the 2010 800 Assault RMK. I'd hazard a guess there won't be many of these left on dealer floors by the time Christmas rolls around. [More]

Follow the Rookie

As a relative ‘newbie’ to the sport of Snowmobiling, I am pitching the idea of a “Snowmobile Diary” for your website “SledAddicts”, writing about my first full year of snowmobiling on the West Coast of Newfoundland. This diary will contain an account of my weekly riding as well as the ‘trials and tribulations’ associated with the sport (ie. maintenance, learning new riding skills, and how I incorporate riding into my hectic work and family life).
