RIDING LYNX

Currently I ride a Lynx Shredder RE 850 E-TEC Turbo R 3900 snowmobile. The Shredder has a special feeling for a mountain sled - something versatile, something that can do it all. The suspension handles like no other mountain sled. No matter the day, terrain, or snow conditions, this snowmobile is going to be an absolute blast to ride! You can find me riding in the deepest ravines and tightest trees littered with boulders and features to conquer and launch off of.

And on a practical level, I'm a fan of all the storage accessories too – my sled needs tons of storage. Avalanche gear, tools, first aid, communications and survival gear are always priority number one. Things can happen fast out there and if you’re not properly trained or prepared it's a recipe for disaster.
We Lynx riders are aggressive, attacking every feature and type of terrain that lies in our way. We hunt for the riding zones no one else has the will to drop into. We have fun doing it also.


STARTING OUT

My dad got me hooked from a young age. We had a family cabin, which meant I had a great introduction to riding. It was just riding until we ran out of gas and daylight just to do it again the next day.

As soon as I was old enough to ride a full-size sled, it was game over, I knew what I wanted to do from a very young age! Nowadays, I'm a 100% mountain rider through and through. The freedom of not being confined to a trail combined with all the feelings of moto and snowboarding. A good day on a snowmobile is unlike anything else.


LIVING SISU

My six years guiding in the backcountry embody sisu. From fixing sleds in the backcountry to riding in the pouring rain all day, it feels like I’ve seen it all. But as a mountain guide, it’s right when you think you’ve seen it all that something new pops up. That’s why I love snowmobiling. Catch me in the steep trees pulling technical lines one day and the next rolling up to find jumps, pillows, cliffs and anything that allows me to get in the air. Either that or some sort of self-inflicted carnage that means we spend the rest of the day trying to get back to the top of a ridge. Whatever the terrain has to offer, I’m there for it!

Fast Facts

On the playlist

An absolute mixing pot of songs that inspire me and get me going, but Zach Bryan is a constant on the road and throughout my travels.

Must-haves on a sled trip

My life and job revolves around the adventures and content I produce, whether it’s my cinema camera or just a GoPro, you can bet I have one on me to capture the adventures.

Bucket list riding destination

If you could take your Lynx Anywhere?

Japan. Watching films from snowboarders and skiers. I dream of riding the legendary Japan snow on my snowmobile and experiencing the culture of such a magical place.
