With sled season just a few weeks away, I just wanted to share the workshop schedule for the 2016 Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Show! I also want to thank the presenters for their continued commitment to the advancement of the sport and for the volunteering of their time. Each of them have given up an hour or more, despite paying for a booth, to come and teach us how to better utilize our machines and enjoy the sport! Thank you, to each of you!
New this year, The Boondockers will spend 90 minutes, in a panel format, explaining sticky situations they’ve been in, and how they safely got out. Expect to hear tips on useful gear, techniques, and general knowledge. The session will complete with a Q&A. Also, Mike “Mule” Langhenry will present a 60 minute lecture on GPS use, navigation technique, tips and gear. Finally, Jon Miller of Backcountry United will present a focused panel on using snowmobiles to get to better skiing and snowmobiling. Mr. Miller will discuss technique, gear, and tips to make Hybrid-Use more enjoyable for everyone!
Returning, will be Erik “VOHK” Woog, renowned sled mechanic. The man behind some of the most prominent backcountry machines in the West will review performance and maintenance. Also, Jim Phelan of Thunderstruck and Brandon “TuDizzle” Cox will discuss building an audience and presence online.

There is a $40 fee for this class, and participants must register with Mr. Duffy prior to the clinic.
