CORY DAVIS – FIRST SNOWMOBILE RIDE IN ALASKA
Soldotna, Alaska, November 5, 2015 - Halloween day, X-Games medalist
Cory Davis (@CDSIX) left his hometown, Soldotna, Alaska and headed north to Summit
Lake, home of Arctic Man in the Alaska Mountain Range. Although Cory normally rides
within an hour away, the nine-hour commute for an early ride was worth it. At Motorfist,
we call it #snowhunting. The parking lot only had six inches of snow, but after ascending
1,000 feet, Cory was relieved to find even more.
Cory described the October ride as surprisingly good for this early. “The perfect
ride for me is a four foot blower day with some good sized booters. On this ride I was
lucky enough to find a decent sized jump along with some great pow and that felt
awesome.” Motorfist sent Kory Robbins to Summit Lake to document the ride. For the
rest of us, we’ll keep hunting for that early snow.
Cory is an all-around snowmobile athlete with abilities in multiple disciplines, a 6x X Games
medalist who’s background comes from growing up in Alaska. He spent his early years on the
snocross circuit earning two national championships. Cory’s riding has evolved and he has since switched to freestyle. He spends his winters in preparation for X Games, racing Alaska’s Iron Dog,and mountains riding as much as possible.
