Mission: My goal with starting Next Level Riding Clinics is to create a never been done before riding experience that would allow people the opportunity to improve their skills in the backcountry. It seems like there are schools and training facilities for just about every sport out there, but snowmobiling hasn't had anything available that would not only teach people mountain riding techniques, but also leave them with a strong sense of avalanche awareness. Since the first Sledneck’s movie, I've been pushing myself, my snowmobiles, and my abilities to new heights. From my freestyle career to free riding in the backcountry this sport has taught me some valuable lessons.   

Next Level Riding Clinics is my way of giving back to the sport and my fellow snowmobilers. During the clinics I share all the tips and tricks that have taken me over 15 years to learn and perfect. With years of experience as a snowboard coach I have a passion for teaching, and seeing people do something they didn’t think they could, makes it all worth it. I have adapted the use of gates in the clinics to be able to fine tune riders skills while maintaining a safe environment. Riders of all ability levels can come to the clinics to gain a new sense of backcountry riding and will ultimately become more effective snowmobilers. People have often asked me what my most valued avalanche devise is, and my answer has always been KNOWLEDGE!
