    I can’t really think of a good reason for working skidoo’s to be treating hillocks as berms for turns.

    Centrifugal Force. If the vector of the centrifugal velocity of the Skidoo balances the gravitational vector. The skidoo can make turns on hillocks and berms, like they're driving on the flat. So why not ?

    BTW. I thought we we're stopping for dinner. :D
