That is a crazy event. I dont know who is more crazy, the rider or the hill help that run after the sled.

These riders have some huge balls. I agree that guys trying to stop the sleds from rolling down the mountain are nuts.

I was at a similar event in Revelstoke a couple years ago. A little different format, some of the riders have incredible talent & also compete at Jackson Hole.
Attached is a clip from the Big Iron Shootout in Revelstoke.

Ah man u guys had to post that:-| Usually I would be on my way out there now to ride in togwotee pass 3-4 days then drive 45 minutes to jackson for the climbs :( this is the first year ive missed in the last 6 years

The hill climbs is a huge party every year and even in the video its hard to imagine how steep the hill is but if someone is standing 2 feet in front of you there shoulders are about at your waist its insane

I wish I was on my way but I blew up my motor last tuesday :evil:

Its kinda hard to tell by the video but I was there 2 years ago and they raced a yamaha waterskip setup sled against yamaha's new at the time wave runner and the sled killed it in a race these things go really fast on water

Sorry boys for delay.

Nope I raced Snowcross. We did however cross paths with drivers from the Hillclimp circuit at the factory race school every fall. They have a new version now (not that they still don't do hill climkbs) called hii cross. Its 6 sleds lined up and a shot up a ski hill with 3 or for monster jumps. A lot of snowcross guys will do this in the spring as it's after most cicuits finish up and after most ski hills shut down for the season.

I was at a regional once where for fun at the end of the day they did something like that up a 120meter ski jump. That was fun:)
