An exploration of the powder filled wonder of North America with the help and thrill of a throttle. I used to ride in the Truckee Rodeo and I always dreamt of being a rodeo queen. I wasn’t allowed to throw my hat in the ring because I didn’t own my own horse. I happily settled for the beer flag carrier between events atop a borrowed but trusty horse. Where do my skier and rodeo queen dreams meet? The moment I handed a country boy a stack of cash in rural Wyoming and got myself a snow pony… The trill of the ride, buck and wild, all to land atop untouched perfect snow, without a soul around.
I am always looking for ways to take things, especially my skiing, to the next level. Launching into snowmobiling for me is all about access. A way to a get to terrain to push and progress my skiing. The caveat? I had to learn something totally new first. Luckily, I have patient, funny friends that are willing to join me for the ride. Snow Pony follows myself and my friends as we sled and ski around the mountains of western North America, from Wyoming, to Revelstoke, to home in Tahoe. It’s an adventure, and I am a novice, but the snow, the skiing and the smiles are plenty! Let’s giv’er a whirl!
