As riders are at different levels of ability, my posts and articles will be tagged with Basic Riding Technique, Intermediate Riding Technique or Advanced Riding Technique. Let’s take a look at what I mean by Advanced Riding:
The majority of these rides will be off trail in complex terrain which will be steep, mountainous and populated with trees. An advanced ride will require the machine to frequently be on edge, including edge side hilling and downhill tracking. Riders must have proficient skills in riding technical backcountry terrain, including but not limited to the following skills: maneuvering and control on both sides of the sled, opposite foot forward control, and aggressive side to side movements. Ride routes may pass above hazards requiring downhill or zero radius turns.
