If your not getting snow on the heat exchangers it's gonna overheat!

Try to drive into the powder on the sides of the trails to kick some snow up there every now and then if should work.

I had the same problem with my 800 Cat last year when it was new. Our 35" of December snow turned into 10" of snow covered with 2" of ice from a January rain. It sucked, a new sled that was overheating from lack of soft snow.
Keep it in the powder!

I have only one idea about this, make sure that your coolant system is properly bled of all air. On my sled i must raise the front of the sled up and then run the engine at idle, and must also release the pressure lever on the radiator cap. Check your owners manual and see what it says to do.

Hey there
Had the same problem with my 2002 600 xcsp. It got worse when i tried to warm up the sled. It was a bleed problem, but took several attempts to get right. Bled and filled the system 4 times. The fill bottle almost had a vacuum to it. Finally ended up with a slight over fill. Took the level back to normal. No problems at all after that.

I thought it was a temperature problem, but now have riden in multiple temperatures since fix, and no issues
