The Kitimat Haisla Hill Climb (also known as the Dave Saunders Memorial Hill Climb) is a Canada Day tradition in Kitimat. two lane drag race for 400 feet up Haisla Hill (close to my house).
So on the afternoon of June 30, wandered down from the house to watch the time trials. I had expected the muscle cars. What I did not expect were the “sleds,” snowmobiles converted to race on asphalt.
Sitting in a spectators’ section near the finish line gave a good view for a few shots.
In the next two shots, the sled racers slowly come back down Haisla Hill after their time trial. Here you can see where the skis in the front of the snowmobile have been replaced by wheels.
