Most guys think of Dan Adams' job as a clinic instructor as just playing on the snow every day. What will surprise you is: a) how little Dan gets to ride during the clinic, and b) how much physical labor Dan and the other instructors go through in a day with clients. We tagged along with one of Dan's clinics last season and watched as Dan and his crew literally went from bomb hole to bomb hole, pulling out stuck sleds for four straight hours. One client would get unstuck just as another would bury their sled. So how does Dan make that part of the job easier? Snobunjes. Dan and his helper both pack Snobunjes on their sleds both when on the job and while out riding without clients. They could snap a stuck sled out of its hole in about 20 seconds, compared to about 3-4 minutes without them. Just something to think about before you head out this season.
