I'll admit it. I'm getting lazy. I'm tired of hiking for turns. My experience with sleds for snowboarding/skiing is limited to a few days boarding off an older RMK 700 and the newer skidoo 4 strokes.The RMK is effective as transport and trading runs worked well. The ski doo bogs in steeps and anything over about a foot of fluff.
Now, I'm looking for a sled I can ski/board off of. Here's the question: what sled would you recommend for a powder sled/mountain sled as transport for skiing (backcountry ski lift)? The sled will probably get trashed so I don't want to put too much into it, maybe $3500-$4k, preferrably a little bit less.
Any sleds to avoid?
