Action filmmaker and Slednecks founder Jason Moriarty was recently featured on an episode of “Stunts and Chaos” from Current.com.

Moriarty is one of the fathers of extreme snowmobile videos and this show features loads of awesome footage from the Slednecks series. Moriarty talks about how he got started shooting action videos and why he took up snowmobiling in the first place.

If extreme snowmobile videos are up your alley, this is worth checking out. You watch the entire feature below the jump.

We love backyard mechanics and their creations. Recently we found some photos of a very cool snowmobile project built by a retiree from the Russian city of Korov.

The machine is powered by an old Yamaha engine and the rest is made up of scrap. The fiberglass seat comes from an old carousel and the gear shift lever appears to some sort of Coca-Cola collectible.

What really sets this machine apart is that it uses a big wheel instead of a track.  Check out more photos after the jump.

Pro snowboarder Marko Grilic jumped over snowmobile rider Ross Mercer recently for Red Bull Double Air. Check out the video after the jump.

Grilic and Mercer pulled off the stunt multiple times, with each rider attempting different tricks each time. Grilic showed off a Back Side Ten, Double Cork, and Cab Nine over Mercer’s Superman, Can Can, and Tsunami.

“That was really crazy! I cannot believe we did it,” says Grilic. “It’s something that until now no one has tackled, so I really wanted to be the first!

In one of the more bizarre stories we’ve seen recently, a couple was out snowmobiling in northern Sweden when they found a six-month-old baby asleep on the trail.

They picked up the baby and started looking for its parents and soon ran into two men on skis who were each pulling a sled. One of the sleds contained two children, while the other was empty.

I can imagine you parents out there would absolutely lose your minds if you just happened to misplace your baby in the middle of a snowmobile trail. However, after reclaiming his child, the father responded by saying “I thought it had gone a bit quiet back here.”
