SnoWest Magazine has been building a project sled for 19 years now. And with each sled comes new ways to go about getting the best balance of weight, handling and horsepower.

Project Great White is all about that balance. We started with a 2013 Arctic Cat ProClimb M 800 Sno Pro 153 and compiled a list of parts that covered weight, power, handling and rider comfort. With a few hundred miles on the sled by early January, it’s safe to say the recipe works.

So, how did we get from a 565-pound wet weight to 528 lbs., gain horsepower and improve ride quality? Here’s the latest on the build and its initial rides. We’ll have a full report next season.
