Here’s a second update on the Team Arctic Test Trip, as captured by full-time journalist (and part-time snocrosser) Tucker Hibbert.
In Tucker’s own words:
Camp looks nice with a fresh layer of powder. Winter has arrived.
Kirk isn’t sure if Steve Houle from Speedwerx would approve, but he thinks he has the clutching on my Mod sled dialed in.
Zach Pattyn, Logan Christian, and Andrew Carlson cant get their gear on fast enough.

This is me putting in some laps. It’s amazing how I can ride and shoot a photo, huh?
Kirk prepares to show all us kids how it’s done.
Usually Kirk rode back and forth from the trailer to where we would make our tracks. Two miles or so each way. He would prep my sleds in the morning, we would ride up the mtn. Then he would build a fire, heat up a Monster coffee in the fire, lay backwards on my other sled, eat a snickers bar and tell us riders to ride more and go faster.
It’s break time.
Kirk’s work is done for the day, time for a nap.
