need some help!!!

I was just out riding my sled today. I got a 94 skidoo formula z 583. Everytime I went up a steep hill it seemed Luke the sled was losing power. It would pretty much come to a slow crawl even though you were on the throttle. It also started to overheat to as this was happening. Any suggestions. I have no clue what it could be.

Have you cleaned the carbs, clutches, checked all fluids including antifreeze, if so have you checked to see if your water pump is working?
