Mountain climbing at one time was heading up to the summit with all your gear step by step. Now all you need to do is climb onto your mountain snowmobile thanks to the longer track, suspension and turbo your on your way to the top. Some of these inclines are as much as 75%, man that’s just about straight up, try to stand there! The excitement of this sport is really catching on, manufacturers are fueling that fire by continually developing their mountain sled lines, consistently producing new models and developing new technology aimed specifically at mountain riders. Most competitive is the 800cc mountain segment, and almost every year it seems we’re treated to a new model in this class. From the Rockies here in the states and up north to British Columbia, mountain snowmobiling is scaring the snowboarders, “how did you get up here man”! The power of this new breed is remarkable, it seems most of the time the track is the only part of the sled that is in the snow, if gravity could pull forward the damn thing would go straight up!
Arctic Cat, Polaris and Ski-Doo fiercely contend the mountain 800 class continually trying to top each other and lead this growing segment. This is some stiff competition and all of these sleds are going to be an experience running up the summit, and getting down is another thing. In some cases your going to need a helicopter, damn we use to use them to get to the top now we need them to get off!

Well if the 200 to 400hp turbo range is not enough this might make it to the top, Nitro if you could hang on!
