Belted

A friend of mine recently called to ask why his brand-new snowmobile is burning up belts so quickly. Now I’m used to having this conversation with owners of certain brands but this guy is driving a ‘Ski-doo Renegade Back Country X’ model which isn’t known for drive problems. The standard answer for some owners is […]

Wrecked It

We had a great snowmobile ride on Newfoundland’s West Coast last weekend – but it didn’t start out that way. We stayed at Strawberry Hill Resort where the beds were more than comfortable, the grub was plentiful and satisfying, the company superb and the snow conditions were decent. We rode right from the camp door […]

Best Snow Show in Pacific Northwest…Washington Snowmobile Expo and Swap Meet

  If you’re going to drive out to a Snow Show tis year, this is the show to spend the effort. The 20th Annual Washington Snowmobile Expo and Swap Meet starts Saturday! The show might be better know as the Puyallup Show but one and the same….it’s huge, its fun and its TOMORROW! These guys […]

26 th Annual Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Expo in Denver

The snowmobile expo in Denver starts today! Even if you’re hours away from Denver, it is so worth the drive. The Who’s Who of the Boondockers Crew will be there selling all the best Boondockers apparel and our new vid, Boondockers 8. We got more of our awesome Boondockers ball caps in three colors this […]

First Ride of the Season

We finally made it out for the first ride of the season. We still need a little more base, but conditions are improving quickly and more storms are in the forecast. Rick Barker and Phatty made quick work of the untouched powder. Phatty is on a new 2010 Arctic Cat M8 HCR. Rick is still […]

Old School

This afternoon I rode with Shane Kynaston. We got in a good dose of spring riding, with plenty of big climbs, technical pulls, and even a few big drops and jumps. While many riders have already hung it up by this time of year, we usually ride until the end. For me, late spring conditions […]

California Gold Rush, Part 2

Day 3: If it could go wrong it did. With no snow at the trailhead we started cruising up the old dirt road, which was dusty at first. After the first corner we found the road was also a creek bed. So now it was a muddy boulder field with melt water rushing down. That […]

A River Runs Through It

Each year we start our riding season with great expectations of deep powder, huge air, and unexplored terrain. As spring approaches, however, we always seem to find ourselves scrambling for the last face shots before spring replaces winter’s chill breath with the warmth only an extended day permits. For those hungry enough, you can still […]

Stitch and Bitch

With all the technological advancements we enjoy in this day and age you’d think people would have a lot less to complain about. Somehow this is not the case and no matter what the situation it seems that folks tend to look for the very worst – often forgetting how amazing the experience itself might […]

Neverland

We just arrived home from an action-packed weekend trip to Colorado. Rick Barker, Ryan Nelson, Geoff “Phatty” Dyer, and myself met up with Dave Napier, Matt Entz, and Michael McCullough to ride one of Dave’s top secret locations. Dave appropriately named this location “Never never land.” The name was clearly inspired by the never-ending expanses […]

White Dreams

Today was one of those days that you dream of all summer. All of the perfect ingredients were there–new snow, sunshine, good friends, and ripping sleds. What started out as a rain storm over the weekend ended up laying down 3-4ft. of powder in the mountains over the last three days and this morning the […]

Top 5 New Snowmobile Products

Producing the Boondockers films has always been primarily a hobby for the Boondockers team. We probably spend more time riding powder on weekends, late afternoons, and early mornings than we do working at our regular jobs and you can be sure that we never let any sick days lapse, but we do still have jobs.
