What does That Ski-Doo Feeling mean to you?

To me it's all the little things we do outside of sledding to be reminded of sledding; the Ski-Doo banner in the shop, the Ski-Doo license plate frame, the Ski-Doo sticker on the shop fridge, or putting on your favorite Ski-Doo casual piece, jumping on to the forums to read about everyone's thoughts on setup or tuning. When you experience That Ski-Doo Feeling it becomes a bit of who you are!

What’s your “regular” job?

Summer time: Excavation; get paid to dig a hole then fill it back in!
Winter time: Race snowmobiles up a mountain (RMSHA)

How long have you been riding snowmobiles?

Snowmobiles have always been a part of my family growing up… really been doing it as long as I can remember.

What are your interests and hobbies outside of snowmobiling?

Racing hard enduro, riding stand-up jetski, being with the family!


What motivates you to be an Ambassador?

Growing the sport. Whether it be helping people become better/safer riders, creating entertainment, racing up a mountain or providing input to making a product more enjoyable; the goal is to help! Having a voice with a manufacturer helps reach so many people.



What is your favorite Ski-Doo model of all time?

Tough question; they do just keep getting better but if I had to pick a sled that I have the most memories on.. it would be 1998 Ski-Doo 670! Sled was my dads brand new and he kept if for me and I rode it for a few years (I was maybe 12-14 years old). It had custom painted hood, I polished the tunnel nearly every night, put twin pipes and a long track (144”) on it… sled taught me some about jetting which is a bit rare for my generation! Even won a local grass drag on it! Would love to have one again someday…

What’s the most fun you’ve ever had on a sled?

Probably would be my next ride! Honestly, I have so much fun everytime I go riding; really any chance you get a solid group of friends; so the comradery is high, is the making of a fun day.

What is your must-have item or accessory for every ride?

Short riser! I run the Ski-Doo 3.7 riser and I'm lost on a sled without it!

What’s your favorite meal on a sled?

People stop riding to eat??

What do you love about BRP?

The innovation! Every aspect of BRP seems to be on the forefront of technology or the pursuit to make the rider/driver experience better! Less time messing around tuning, maintaining and more time spent enjoying it!
