BRP’s Ski-Doo snowmobiles and Carl Kuster have joined forces in creating a new riding camp designed to deliver an unparalleled mountain snowmobiling experience. Riders will have the chance to try the latest Ski-Doo technology from BRP, learn from recognized backcountry experts, and hone their riding skills while having a great time in the deep powder snow of British Columbia.

With two locations offering riding that ranges from big meadows of fresh powder to play in to super technical steep-and-deep inclines, and even unique glacier areas, the camp has something for everyone. Classes offered will be one, two or three days long for skill levels from intermediate to expert. Attendees can bring their own sled or rent a state-of-the-art Summit at a special rate.

“Creating a permanent place for our loyal snowmobile customers to experience all the best in mountain riding, while using the newest sleds and clothing from BRP, has been a vision of ours for a while now,” says Robert Lumley, vice president of sales and marketing Ski-Doo and Sea-Doo. “Partnering with Carl Kuster Mountain Park brings it to reality in a stunning way. Everything from the experience and instruction to fantastic riding areas and great hospitality, this is a combination our dealers and customers will truly appreciate.”

Levi LaVallee has fully recovered from injuries suffered in a crash while training for a record-breaking snowmobile distance jump and he’s ready to try it again. This time, he’ll have a little company.

LaVallee will be attempting to break the snowmobile distance jump record at the same time as Robbie Maddison will try to break the motorcycle distance jump record in the latest installment of Red Bull: New Year. No Limits. The event will air live from San Diego, Calif., on Saturday, Dec. 31 at approximately 11 pm ET / 8 pm PT on ESPN, ESPNHD and ESPN3, immediately following the Chick-Fil-A Bowl.

This year, LaVallee, a 28-year-old native of Longville, Minn., will jump his snowmobile alongside Maddison, a 30-year-old Aussie now living in Temecula, Calif., who will pilot his motorcycle as both athletes concurrently jump over 300 feet of water from the North park to the South park at the Embarcadero Marina Park in the downtown area of San Diego Bay. LaVallee will attempt to break his own record of 361 feet and Maddison will be aiming for a leap of more than 400 feet to eclipse the current record of 391 feet.
