The Micku name is renowned for backcountry snowmobile talent and Brandon Micku is keeping that reputation alive and true. Brandon's a top level hill climb racer, a backcountry expert and a turbo sled guru.
Born and raised in Alberta, I moved to BC as soon as I could, in 2007 when I was finished University. I have a 10 year old son who is growing up fast and starting to enjoy the sports I do. My experience in sledding includes ditch banging short tracks since I was 7, my first introduction to mountain riding was in 2002 when we started using them for backcountry access for snowboarding. I bought my own brand new Rev in 2007 and never looked back. Currently, I have been guiding for Great Canadian Snowmobile Tours here in Revelstoke for 4 seasons, going on 5. I am pursuing my Avalanche Operations Level 2 and aid in teaching AST courses with Soul Rides. I spend well over 100 days a season on my machine and get to practice everyday with all different skill levels. My favorite part about the sport is the endless progression and the fact that you can never really conquer it - there is always something new you can hit or learn. Oh, and I love faceshots - who wouldn't. My current sponsors are Riderz Edson, Motorfist, 509inc, and Snowpulse. I started La Nina Sled Camp in 2012 because I saw a huge increase in women riders in the market and a niche for learning that would essentially help girls build confidence in a positive environment and away from the stress of having to keep up with their partners.
I love my business and Iove my lifestyle and I hope to continue influencing other women to get out and shred as often as they can.

Dan "Krazy Canadian" Davidoff
Dan Davidoff, a.k.a. the Krazy Canadian, needs no introduction. For more than 30 years, this thrill-seeking native of Castlegar, B.C., has been ripping it up in the West Kootenay region of B.C. If you're a fan of Thunderstruck Films, chances are, you've seen Davidoff tearing up 1,500-foot chutes like it's nobody's business. And if you're one of Davidoff's fans, it's likely that you own a few of his Krazy Canadian Adventures movies.
Cameron "Hollywood" Hicks
Cam spent years as the token snowmobiler in snowboard movies produced by Tyler and his crew. Tandemming burly snowboarders to the top of sweet pow lines or jump run-ins, Cam was the guy who could get you to the places that you knew you couldn't. Over the years, Cam began to film with other sled crews and Tyler filmed Cam's riding more and more. As time went on, the Hicks brothers began to attract more sledders while the original snowboard posse got older, got married and had kids.
14/15 Season Recap with Cody Borchers
Well after last year's knee cap injury I didn't want to put any pressure on myself to charge it, just more ride for fun and enjoy every day on the snow.
With the snow conditions being a challenging factor at the beginning; you really had to tread lightly in the early parts of the winter and avoid those oh so tempting lumps of snow that we all love to smash and jump off of! But it always seemed we could find those pockets of snow to disappear into!
As the season rolled on with some serious dry spells that left you wondering if beautiful winter was ever going to come back, it was quickly becoming a patience tester. It was raining to the top making conditions hard to find snow without any traction.
When things started too re-set with fresh snow and the temperature warming up it sparked the confidence to stretch the wings and try out the suspension!
Getting my bigger jumps feeling good it only meant it was time to start playing with freestyle tricks!
Having some freestyle tricks under my belt, there wasn't much more I wanted to do then hit everything and try to hang on by a fingertip! The feeling of barley hanging on is so much fun.
Now as we rolled into spring; I started wrapping up my video parts for 509 Volume 10 and Slednecks 18 it was all about keeping it fun and finishing off the season strong and in one piece hahahaha!!
Which was a complete success and a great feeling on my end. It has been a few years since I have had a full season under my belt and I am stoked to end the 2014/15 strong and motivated for next winter.
I couldn't do all this without all the amazing companies that stand behind me. RIDERZ I can't thank you enough for all you do for me and it is an amazing Dealership to work and ride for. 509 for keep my vision clear and my head safe with your killer helmets and goggles. Slednecks for always keeping me dry and looking fresh. Enzo Canada for making the handling of my sled on point. Eco-Flex, FXR, HTR, Atlas, Highmark Snowpulse. Thank you.
Till next time
