Thompson Pass is great for sled-assisted skiing and snowboarding and can allow you to get much farther into the mountains from basecamp. If you don't have your own make sure to bring some extra cash and make friends with those who do fast for sled bumps to zones. If you do bring your own sled try and make sure it's a long track. You don't want to be these guys. This year Ski Doo will be coming to Tailgate and doing free educational clinics and demos of their snowmobiles.
