Snowshoeing with a Mad River Rocket

Explore the backcountry with a Mad River Rocket, the ideal backcountry sled.  Snowshoe up the mountain with the lightweight Mad River Rocket on your back, then ride down, with the snowshoes on your back.  The best sled runs to take a Mad River Rocket down are big mountains with fresh powder. And a great way to get to the top of these runs is to hike through the deep snow.  What an amazing workout!!

You can also pull the Mad River Rocket behind you as a pulk to haul gear on your backcountry adventure.

Winter 2013 has officially begun

Snow is falling across America in mass quantities. Find your steep and deep powder run and take your Mad River Rocket down it. If you're the first person to sled down a mountain, we want to know! We will soon release our "first descents" list.

If you have video, share it with us on Facebook and we would be happy to share it here on our site.
