    Polaris snowmobile hillclimbers won the overwhelming majority of Pro class titles, swept the Women’s classes to earn Queen of the Hill honors, and won every King of the Hill crown at the Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Hillclimb Association’s Beaver Mountain Hillclimb at Logan, Utah, on April 18-19.

    Polaris Pro racers Erin Beukelman and Keith Curtis each won four Pro classes and they combined to sweep the Pro King titles, while Jesse Hotchkiss won the Semi-Pro King of the Hill contest.

      Gavin Balls Jackson Hole

      Gavin Balls rode his 2015 Yamaha SR Viper M-TX to victory in the Improved Stock 700 class at the Jackson Hole World Championship Hillclimb.

      Just two weeks prior, Balls finished on the podium in second place in Pinedale. Turns out that was just a precursor to what most would consider the biggest stage in hillclimb competition, Jackson Hole.

            2015 Arctic Cat M8000 HCR

            The 2014 hillclimb race season kicked off with Team Arctic winning 10 classes at the Bear Lake event in Montpelier, Idaho. Team Arctic racers amassed the 14 wins – including four King titles – while competing aboard a full range of Arctic Cat M Series snowmobiles with the ProClimb chassis.

            “There is always a question mark at the first race of the season,” says Al Shimpa, Team Arctic Hillclimb Coordinator. “We know our sleds and racers are ready to go and we’re hoping for some wins, but you never know how they’ll compare with the competition. With 10 class wins and four King titles at Bear Lake, we couldn’t be happier. And the team goes into the next six races with great confidence.”
