Default Thank You 2 guys riding from Mountain, Green Shack and Armstrong Creek first responders

Yesterday my wife got pitch off her snowmobile going around an icy corner and hit a rut by Armstrong Creek. There were 2 guys going the opposite direction that seen it and stopped. We did not get their names but they left from Mountain riding a Ski-Doo and Yamaha. They helped get things situated and then followed us until we were able to get back to Armstrong Creek. Sorry we didnít get your names but THANK YOU. We made it back to the Green Shack in Armstrong Creek where the owners called first responders and made her as comfortable as possible. They offered up anything that we needed and even had a ride lined up for me if I needed one to get back from the hospital. The Armstrong Creek first responders were quick to get there, very professional and truly a class act treating her.

To all Thank You and hoping to get the names of the guys that stopped.

Speedy recovery for your wife, hopefully it doesn't discourage her from riding in the future.

Did she have a vest on, if not would a vest maybe have taken some of the impact from her injuries.

No she don't wear a vest and I've been after her to wear one as I do. Yes a vest would have helped she has 3 broken ribs. She'll have a vest next year.

Ladies think us guys are the only ones that will get into accidents because we push our sleds. My wife tipped her sled over on a sidehill (going to slow) many years ago.

Well wife is on her way to recovery what a long process. The only damage to the sled was a scratch decal and has been replaced. Most important is she does have a Tekvest now. 👍

Hope all goes the best it can for your wife. Also thank you to the two kids and everyone that helped you two. I will be getting a vest before I get on my new sled next year.

I wound up getting a motocross armor. It's awesome, because the chest plate is ONE PIECE. It zips along the side, super comfortable, cannot tell I am wearing it once it's on. Most of the vests have a zipper down the middle, which is pretty stupid. The point of a chest plate is to distribute blows, if there is a joint in the middle it won't work very well if you hit the handlebars.
