Either of these sleds would work extremly well for you being a beginer.
07 RMK 600HO

or the 06 RMK 600HO

you say the phazer is underpowered but ive read an arcticle and it was tested by a bunch of 30 year old guys (usually around 200 lbs) and they had the phazer mountain lite 144" and by the pictures they were shouwing it really did pretty well imo. try and find some rider reviews on the phazer mountain lite 144". other than that a polaris rmk 600/700 is a great sled

I would wait until you move out there and ask at your local dealerships. It sounds like you night be in a fairly remote area. Is there a dealer for all 4 major brands nearby. If the only dealership within an hours drive carries Polaris for instance, I would stick with that brand.

After I decided on an brand I would get the least expensive mountain or cross-country model from that brand. Ex. Yamaha - Phazer mountain lite, Arctic Cat - M5 or Crossfire 5. You will be so impressed with the power of one of these smaller sleds for your first few years of riding.

Agreed, if you have the bucks I would look for an M5/6 or a Crossfire. You should be able to find some good used sleds around that area. I don't think a phazer would be a bad choice either. Really reliable and pretty much maintanance free.

Buy an 05 -06 Arctic Cat M5 or M6 144, that will get the job done and are great for the beginner!!!
