(EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the eighth in a series of articles about converting a 2015 Arctic Cat M 8000 SnoPro into a SnoWest Forums 2016 Project Cat giveaway sled. Throughout the summer and fall we will be working with SnoWest Forum members to build the perfect snowmobile … and then we will give it away to a Forum member at the end of the build.)
A good mountain rider knows he needs to have solid footing on his snowmobile in order to maintain the balance necessary to traverse extreme terrain. And there’s nothing more frustrating during a day of powder riding than to keep losing your footing due to a buildup of snow on the running boards.
So any good mountain rider recognizes the value of having a good set of running boards that eliminate snow buildup while still providing secure traction to the foot. With our 2015 Arctic Cat M 8000 SnoPro project it was natural for us to add the Proclimb Boards from Arctic Cat.
