Not all mountain sleds need to be mountain exclusive.
For western snowmobilers, the choice between the RMK and the SKS is a no-brainer: Why buy a trail sled when you can have a real mountain machine?

The original Polaris mountain-specific snowmobile was the SKS—Snow King Special. It was designed to compete in mountain terrain and climb its way up deep snow slopes. So its DNA is definitely designed for extreme terrain.
