I clicked on the trestle creek vid and thought for sure you had wrecked within the first 10 seconds haha. Exactly what I was looking for though, looks sweet!

Experience. Being a powder skier or boarder helps.

Was wondering because I mostly see pictures or movies of snowbikes off-trails...

That's about what I would have guessed. Pretty dangerous, then, no?

How much extra stress does the track put on the engine?

Yeah, it's pretty dangerous. Not just avalanches since you pay close attention to the avy report all season long... but low snowpack, trees, rocks, cliffs, holes, changing snow conditions. You cover so much terrain and a lot of it rolls over out of sight. Gotta really watch for getting impailed when you're in the trees. Then when avy conditions are good big mountain knowledge is key to drop lines. If you push it hard you will get smacked down.

Nice bike. I cry for that clutch though.

The engine gets worked for sure, however as long as you maintain proper temps and keep water out they dont seem to mind it. Dirt and heat do more damage than snow.

I would assume turning that track in deep snow takes way more energy to turn than a dirt bike tire being ridden to the max on dirt. Being completely ignorant on it, I would imagine crank/piston/bearings everything would get worn out 2-3x as fast. I've seen them ripping around up AF while fat biking, looks like tons of fun!
