First-ride impressions on the 2019 Arctic Cat M8000 Mountain Cat Alpha One.by Kirsten Armleder
Kirsten lives with two dogs, three horses and a throttle-happy husband in Cranbrook, B.C. Her interests include fishing, hiking and, of course, backcountry sledding. Like many in her area, Kirsten grew up riding sleds—first a 340 Yamaha Enticer, then a Yamaha Phazer, a Ski-Doo Summit and the list goes on. Her interest in sledding came to a standstill until she discovered deep powder mountain riding. Now when winter rolls around, she can barely stay in the office long enough to finish writing her stories. When she’s not playing hooky from work, though, Kirsten enjoys interviewing riders from across Western Canada, finding new products to review and pretty much anything to do with the sport.
