Sledding-Quading at Tamihi Creek in Chilliwack BC Canada

I was able to get out a few days ago with a bunch of my buddies and get some quading in at one of our favorite spot, Tamihi Creek in Chilliwack BC Canada. I was the first one of us to get a quad, a used 2007 Polaris Sportsman 500 EFI HO. And now three of my buddies all have brand new Polaris Sportsman's, two have the new 570 and one has a 400. To be honest they are a great bike for the money!

Well on this day, it had been snowing pretty much everywhere so it was expected to be riding in snow most of the time. It did restrict us a bit as to where we could ride since the higher we got up the mountain the deeper the snow got and once the snow starts to hit the undercarriage, it's pretty much game over on a quad, that's where you really need a sled (Snow Mobile). Most of the day it felt like we where ridding sleds as it was very slippery and you had to really be on top of the steering to keep the quads on the trails.

We did have to take it pretty easy and there where no major incidents other than when I ejected myself form my quad when it slid into a deep whole. Of course I found the only downed tree around to land on...

If you're into this kind of activity which by the way is a real workout, checkout my YouTube Video.

Quading at Harrison Lake in British Columbia Canada

Quading is a great way to see the outdoors, get the thrill and speed of Motorsports and believe it or not... Get an awesome workout while you're at it! I can easily burn 1000 calories out quading for the day!

Quading is something I just got into this past year and it's really an all year round sport, you just need to dress for the conditions, the quads do not worry about cold or wet or mud, they just go where you point them and can do unbelievable things and get you to places you could not go to on any other vehicle.

When I'm out having this much fun I often strap my Liquid Image Camera Goggles on and capture the days events in HD Video so I can share it with others.

I was ridding my 2007 Polaris Sportsman 500 HO EFI and one of my friends was riding a 2005 Polaris Sportsman 800 EFI, my other buddy had his classic 1985 Honda ATC350X that has a conversion kit on it changing it over from the factory 3 wheeler to a modified 4 wheeler. Being that his quad is almost 30 years old it was the first one to break down on this day, losing a chain. It's all part of the adventure and so was his 1 hour tow back to the truck and trailer.

So sit back and enjoy the awesome scenery we have here in beautiful British Columbia Canada near Harrison Lake.
