The World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb settles for nothing less than the toughest riders and spectators! While riders dominate the hill, a sea of spectators cheer on their favorite rider, share their gnarliest riding story and take on the hill by the seat of their pants, literally!
The event should be added to every snowmobilers “Bucket List”! It’s an experience that newbies and veterans take in with admiration while riders pull off some of the sickest moves on a snowmobile and redefine what the manufacturers’ intended them for. As sleds ghost ride down the .9 mile hill that climbs over 1,500 vertical feet; the hill help jump and dive for the snowmobile and sometimes the rider to keep them from plummeting the entire hill. They are thrill seeking volunteers and a force to be reckoned with. Riders leave the platform flying over the starting jumps and hopefully missing the “Klim Arch”; making their way through icy corners, trenches that could swallow a whole race team and rock gardens that would please any trials biker while spectators anticipate the final outcome. The event becomes an addiction because once you start attending, you can’t stop!
As spectators prepare for this event, it’s important every gear bag be complete with the toughest riding gear available. Gear that will handle what Mother Nature dishes out. The chairlift ride may not prove to be as gnarly and exhausting for the spectators as they listen to the rip roaring snowmobile scale the hill. It’s the ride that happens after exiting the chairlift. It’s an adventure that only the toughest spectators can handle as they leap from the top of the hill and slide back down the entire .9 miles. Just remember trees do exist and hill help is on the other side of the fence! But it’s the last half of this hill that proves the durability of their gear; confirming spectators need tough gear just like the riders for World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb domination. This is when you sit down, lay back and hold on for dear life as you try to avoid bowling for skiers.
Klim’s riders filled the rankings at the World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climb, proving technical riding gear is meant for technical riders. Riders put the gear to the test as they define new elements of maneuverability picking their way through trenches, settling for nothing less than the best. It’s these riders that define Klim’s quality one trench at a time.
