I started riding snowmobile when I was 4 years old where I live in Minnesota. I am 35 now and have never missed a year!

I started going to Wyoming in 1999 with my dad and have made countless trips to the Western States and Western Canada. I spend about 4 weeks a year in the mountains over about 3 separate trips. I also ride as much as I can in Minnesota depending on snowfall. I am only 4 hours from the U.P. of Michigan and have many snowmobiling friends up there so I'll blast up there even if it's only for a day!

Snowmobiling is in my blood. I ride because is I can't remember a time in my life that I didn't. I started so young and I have made so many friends along the way! I just love it.

As for why I think I am North America's Top Snowmobiler, I grew up slamming ditches in southern Minnesota and ripping trails in northern Wisconsin. I cut my teeth In Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah and BC and I've built and jumped freestyle ramps in the U.P. I've put in the miles and the time and wouldn't trade it for anything. Now my 6 year old little girl is hooked and it looks like I just gained another riding buddy.

Thanks for your time and let's pray for some big snows!
