I think its those concrete pipes for drainage.

Here's a question then... what are those huge aluminum pipes that go under highways and things called. No I'm not looking for the answer 'tunnel' i mean the big aluminum pipe thingy?

you guys have no idea how hard i'm laughing right now about the 'culvert' thing!! i guess it's second nature around here, and it's really the only precaution we have to take when riding ditches. it's a tube so to speak made of steel usually that is for drainage under roads, and i know plenty of people who have hit them.

just curious intended, why in the world would your ski be covered under warrenty? doesn't warrenty only cover failure of parts? that's all mine did. if yours covers more i hate you ;)

Just say 'Was riding along, and your ski fell apart....Replace it'

And yes the 'culvert' thing has got me going too. Only in canada were not forced to ride ditch's. ;)

I hope you can purswade them to cover it for you inteded.

that reminds me of when i went to pick up my sled at the dealer. the kid that loaded it got a decent run for our trailer but to load it you have to lift the skis. needless to say, he about went throught the windshield and took huge gouges out of both my skis. that boy is lucky he can still walk.....

Yeah most of the time if you bring your sled in to your dealer with a problem like that they try to take care of you.

i want your dealer. if i went in to any dealer around here with something like that wrong with my sled they would probably laugh and point me to the door. would they do the same thing in the event of a cracked or broken hood?

i was laughing a good one at the culvert thing....my old dealer i went to wouldnt work w/ me at all, not much snwo the year i bought my last sled, had problmes w/ it, they said they warranteed em for a month after it snowed, so after we got decent snow, had problems, brought it here, they fixed the wrong hting, charged like 100 bucks, brought it there again, they said nutin was wrong, charged some more for lookin at it, finally i told em just to ride it, they did and they figured the spark plug wire was hitting the hood and shorting out, so they didnt charge for that time, whenever they looked at it tho, the hood was open when it was running so it ran fine

this dealer was also 120 miles away round trip, so lots of miles were made

There's always next year....
