This year is the first year that i've ridden one. I actually thought they were useless just as you do. The one I drove was a 600 and it was badass to say the least. At first I was kind of freaked out, but it's sort of like a bike and jet-ski on snow. I was dumbfounded when I saw my buddy(the owner) riding in powder uphill that no one else could with a sled. It just did'nt make sense, one ski and a narrow track not getting stuck in what something with two skis and a wider track would get stuck in?? I rode it in the powder myself and unless you held it close to wide open it would want to tip thus making you use your legs to keep yourself up. It took awhile to get used to and after riding it in powder my legs were bruised and battered from the metal pegs..they don't have running boards so you tend to forget that you have short pegs instead of the long running boards to throw your feet on. They got a lot of power too...I definitely would'nt mind buying one if I got it for a good price.

Here's a snohawk vid to checkout if you have not seen one in action:

Talked to a guy last year who rode one, he said it would take a noob about an hour to get the feel for it for the initial ride. He was blazing the trails with it and climbing chutes sleds couldnt fit up, pretty cool to watch.

They're very expensive and not something you'd want to ride for a whole day from what I heard. If you ever get one let us know so we can pass it around though LOL! They would be a blast IMO, especially on a track

Im not too sure if they still make them. The latest model i've seen was an 2006 or 2005. I see quite a few on craigslist that go for 4k with very few miles.

You could go a whole day with one easily...just probably not several days at a time. haha!
