Any suggestions would be most appreciated. I ride in high mountains, generally
heavy snow.

Get the 151 - more track = more floatation. Polaris has a 156 inch and its
awesome- I think it would be tough on a windy trail through the trees
though!

If you are a really good rider, then you already know that a 156
rules.

If you are a not so good rider to medium rider, and really want a
workout, and don't want to boondock with the big boys, then buy a 144
or 151.

I used to be a believer that a shorter track can go anywhere a 156
goes.
I was wrong.

New people on shorter tracks have 2 distinct disadvantages - they are
new, and they are on inferior equipment.

This applies to the mountains and boondocking in the powder. If you
just want to trail ride, get a 144 or something.

With a 156, you can go slower without getting stuck, go more places,
work less, get better mileage, and get stuck less.

I'm a Polaris guy. I used to be cat, and was proud of it, but their
mountain offerings kinda got heavier, and I'm too fat to ride a fat
sled.
For a Polaris, Carl's Cycle Sales - 208-853-5550, ask for Bart and
tell him Doug Miller sent ya. Great dealership, 1/4 mile from my
house. Their buggy's run well.
They sell a lot of sleds, and their customers are happy.

If you really want a Cat, Woody's outdoor power is a great dealership,
located in scenic Caldwell IDaho. Dave Wood is the owner, a great guy,
and is awesome as a dealer and took care of me well.

Let me know if you are coming through boise, and we can go to lunch or
something.
