Sled N Snap 2013/2014 Winners

Posted by Flaman May 02, 2014

Our 2013/2014 Sled’n Snap contest has come to a close and the winners have been announced. This year was my first experience with this contest and it sure was fun to witness. All of the pictures that people submitted were amazing! The trick riding shots and the ones of kids having so much fun were my favourite.
This was also the first year that Sled’n Snap went international with North Dakota joining Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The more the merrier! Making this contest available to more people is what it’s all about.
I also found it interesting that there was a lot of conversations happening on the Sled’n Snap website during the contest. People were sharing their favourite routes and commenting on their favourite pictures. That’s the best way to discover new trails to explore.
I believe that this contest is only just getting started. This year's was great, but I have a feeling that next year is going to be awesome! I’m really looking forward to seeing what pictures the snowmobiling community snap next year.
Congratulations to Jason Holt of Saskatchewan for winning the grand prize! Jason won the use of a 4-Place Enclosed Snowmobile Trailer for a year.

Why Buy Aluminum

Posted by Steve Whittington Feb 01, 2010

Well, there are many reason to buy an aluminum trailer vs a traditional steel trailer. Firstly Aluminum is lighter by 35- 45% which means your payload is going to be higher than a steel trailer with the same axle rating. Generally though most aluminum trailers have a lighter axles than their steel counterparts but are still able to offer the same payload. This equals a less weight to haul (better fuel economy) and your trailer is easier to move around when hitching up.

Another big advantage of aluminum is that it does not rust nor will you have a rotting wood deck to replace (considering you purchased an aluminum decked trailer). A simple acid wash brings the shine of the trailer immediately back.

One of the main misperceptions about aluminum trailers is that aluminum is not as strong as steel. Actually pound for pound aluminum can be two and half times as strong as steel. The extruded shape and type of aluminum used provides a higher tensile strength. Finally if aluminum was weaker why are airplanes made of it?
