I'm mostly a non-motorized sports fan, but I've always been intrigued by what you can do with these machines and where they can take you. Mostly, I'm interested in where they can take me skiing. I'd like to be able to rally in the deep stuff like I see on snowmachine porn (once I learn how to do it), but I'd also like to be able to get places. Pretend I have as much $ as I need for the ideal snowmachine, and then I can look for compromises. Currently, I have no idea about any of it. I've spent years in Turnagain pass on the non-motorized side, at first scoffing at how loud they are and complaining about the quiet mountains they are interrupting. After 10 years though, I'm really wanting to get over there to cause some racket. Thanks for any help.
