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]

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]
