BUILT to take on the deepest snow Niseko’s back country will no doubt serve up, the Polaris 600 RMK Snowmobile is built for powder turning in the backcountry. The RMK 600 is marketed as entry level, but will rip as hard as anything for anyone under 100kgs. It can climb steep slopes, float on side hills and play in the bowls. But you might want to borrow Stirling’s snorkel before going out on this one. The track (chain that runs along the snow) has an interlaced off-setting panel, so it’s always pulling snow, a great asset when you’re pulling deep turns in soft powder. The current model is even lighter than previous years. By shedding the heat exchange pads in the foot panels and using a freestyle seat, it weighs in at a super svelte 55kgs, and at 125 horsepower it has a power-to-weight ratio that is second to none. You can even add more horsepower and reduce the weight of the sled with the optional SLP exhaust silencer. Available from Niseko Snowmobiling Adventures (NSA). Call 090-9757-4083.
