Oh yeah, I can say I have seen and been to many snowmobile water cross events but never seen them go this far before! Pure awesome!!

Seems like I saw one of Rut's posts last year, and he has an ice boat similar to that. Maybe you could use his! Just a little history on the snowmobile water crossings. The idea for the jetski came from guys doing that.

They make alot of boats like these out on the west coast up in Washington . Looks like fun but we use air boat till ice is thick enough for sleds or wheelers .

I have had 2 purpose built water crossing sleds but the whole thing I have not personally seen was the jumping them like that into the water.

Awesome stuff for sure. Gotta love the kids to the north. Silly Canadians. :pound: :up:

I wouldn't have wanted to be the first to try that water landing after that big air!! That water must be about 32.1 degrees.
