Those infamous willows. getting stuck in them is a trip. You know about the stream right there? Nice pics.

Awesome pics!!--- Video?-- One thing I noticed is that Yami seems to want to high side ya quite a bit. You might think this goes against the grain, but try lowering the bars some. With a tall riser and a sled that weighs half a ton, it has a tendency to pull you over the top. Not trying to bust your balls, just offering some advice is all. Take it for what you think its worth.

Yea with the willows holding the snow up a bit, there was 4 feet of powder there when we mowed down the willows for a bit.

Thanks for the advice on lowering the bars. If I were a better rider I could probably ride those carves out. When the camera is on and I have a bit of room, I like to get alot of speed and throw the sled into a carve as hard as I can because something funny generally happens. I usually either tip the sled over to much or fly over the other side. I figured I would put those clips into the video because they are fun to watch. The Apex is a beast of a sled to handle off trail compared to the rmk's and M's. But I was pretty proud since it got me everywhere I needed to go.

That Nytro had a bent subframe and a arm from hitting multiple things over the trip. The shock spring was rubbing on the side of the a arm so we attached it to the truck and a tree with ratchet straps and ratcheted the shock back into the center as best we could so he could ride.
