Default Let's see your kids sleds...then and now.

Post up some pics or vids of THEN and NOW of your kids snowmobiling. I was inspired by a previous thread that lead me down memory lane.

My youngest son, nearly 13 now. Took his first solo ride at 3 (bad idea!) and hasn't looked back.

Some things never change. He's been a treehugger since he started riding.

Here are a few from age 4 to 9. Loved every stage of his development in the sport.

Default Oh hey, I'll play

This sounds fun. Here we go. I can't help but to put words with the pictures as well.

We started my oldest boy off for his 2 year old Christmas getting a beautiful blue Yamaha Nytro (well the Costco version anyway) and begged for Dad to pull him around the yard endlessly on that thing.



Then when he turned 4, I found a good deal on a SnoScoot so we tried it out.



For a multitude of reasons, that wasn't the right sled for us, so I hurried and sold it right before Christmas and actually made a couple hundred bucks on it - alright. A few months later I found a 2003 mini-Z on a pretty good deal so my kid started riding that in both the summer and winter.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4l21pm9d7bs

Meanwhile, his little sister was getting to know the beautiful Nytro and started loving it in his place.



Unfortunately, however, he is a bit of a daredevil and he is a bit obsessed with stuff that's too big for him, so by the time he was almost 6, he was done with the 120 and now just wanted to ride the big 600 around all the time.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHwsF1x2itM

I was in a really bad position. That sled was way too big for him, but I could tell that he was so bored with the 120 and he definitely had more fun on the 600, so I let him ride it. Then you can imagine how excited I was when I saw the snoscoot come out. We got one this year and he's doing great on it and doesn't miss the 600 a bit. I think the scoot will last him this year and probably most of next year as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cc5Ma4yVaAs

In the meantime, his little sister started riding the 120 last spring when she was 4. Then this fall I found a deal I couldn't pass up on a 2015 ZR120 so she took one last ride and I sold the Mini-Z (again at a profit?)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKzI9x4MWfY

And here is the best pic I have so far of the little girl being towed behind the new kitty on her skis. We got a wheel kit for it as well so she can get more seat time this summer.



These two cute kids also now have one more little brother coming up behind them. He is 2 and got his first turn on the Nytro a few weeks ago but was very uncomfortable with it so I couldn't get any pics. He did just finally start to learn to like his little 4-wheeler though, so I'm sure the snowmobiles will be following shortly.

Both started on the Kitty Cat when they where about 3. Don't mind the strap on the hood, the Kitty Cat has one more kid to make it threw, girls ran it into the swing set and the hot tub.. They can spend the better part of a day playing on them, Oldest cant wait to go to the "big hills" and ride
