Why chose The Trail

The Slydog Trail ski took the snowmobile market by storm in 2003, and continues to be one of the best performance upgrades or OEM replacement skis available for a stock sled. Our patented keel design and snow induction process improve the overall handling of any sled and minimize a sled's tendency to dart or follow existing tracks. The Trail ski's light weight and flexible design provide added suspension for a smoother and more controllable ride. Lighter steering, improved handling, and less darting-three perfect reasons to upgrade from stock to Slydog.

Why chose the Powder Hound 7

Introduced in 2005, this is our original Powder Hound model. It features the same patented keel design as our trail ski, but has a much wider platform and intake scoop for improved floatation and side hilling capabilities. The 7" Powder Hound handles great on the trail and in the powder!

Why chose the Powder Hound 8

The 8" Powder Hound is the ultimate ski for deep snow! Its wide platform and newly designed intake scoop create extraordinary lift and flotation in deep powder. We gave this ski a deeper keel than our other models and updated the spindle mount location to improve handling and side hilling. The 8" Powder Hound is the most responsive and versatile ski available.

Why chose The Attack

The 7" Attack Ski is our most versatile design to date, and the perfect solution for riders frequently migrating between powder and trail conditions. We've smashed all the features of the 8" Powder Hound Ski including the big front platform, deep keel, wide mouth snow induction scoop, and more forward-mounted saddle into a more rigid and stiff 7" design. The Attack also features a tapered tail design for better side hilling and boondocking, a high angle rear ski tip for easier reverse travel, and integrated grippers on the top side of the ski for added standing stability.

Picture of The Hell Hound

Why chose The Hell Hound

The Hell Hound was designed specifically for racing. It features a wider and taller reverse angle keel that runs the full length of the ski to produce the best control imaginable. Its taller keel means there's more snow to push against while cornering. The 7.25 inch Hell Hound comes standard with a new, stronger race loop. It also has the thickest platform in the Slydog family, making it the strongest, stiffest, and most aggressive ski we sell. If you’re not looking for a ski specifically to race, we suggest The Attack or Powder Hound models instead.
