    Now that is a utility sled! WOW! I'd love to see it in action.
    One of the pics was at Exit Glacier in Seward. Soooo someone up here has one...

    Just don't get it stuck!

    Looks like a reincarnation of the old Skidoo double tracks we had thirty years ago. Actually, I got my first one, a single cylinder 335cc, with no reverse in 1970.

    I was really uptown, when I got an Alpine 440 twin in the mid-eighties. It had reverse!

    Superclass MK2 looks like a smaller 2-stroke version of the Alpina. Bet the ol' Ski-doo Alpine woulda been a real cool sled if it was designed with 2 skis, rather than just one. Used to see a bunch at the National Guard Armories out here in rural Alaska back in the 90s.

    "Hefty Alpina Sherpa has booth oomph and agility."
    They look like work horses. If you crossed an old Skidoo Alpine with a modern front end and cowling you mighty end up with something like this.

    If I'm tossing budget and practicality out the window make mine a new Sno Cat or Piston Bully. Air ride seat, heater, stereo, turbo diesel.....

    My Professional has pushed big and heavy to the limits as far as I'm concerned. These new wide tracks can pull all I need to pull and can get more stuck than I can get out alone. Enough is enough.

    Looks like a Bearcat humped an Alpine and they produced one of these.
