Dear Motorhead:

I am in the market for two new sleds. I am thinking about a 2013 Ski-Doo Freeride 146 for myself if they make it in 2013 because it seems to be a great match for my style of riding. The problem I'm having is picking a sled to buy for my girlfriend.

I would like to order her a Freeride as well, but she is a green rider and I'm worried it might be too much sled for her.

I don't know where to go from here and am not getting a lot of answers from the dealers.

Hoping the pros at SnowTrax and Supertrax can help.

Thank You!


Dear Mark:

Thanks for your email!

It is very difficult to answer your question without knowing how proficient your girlfriend is in deep snow and trails.

If she is comfortable on trails and not so much off trail then maybe you should consider a Renegade 137 Back Country. It will introduce her to deep snow off trail riding, but will provide an excellent on-trail experience as well.

Hope this helps!

Motorhead Mark
