Driving with broken track sliders?

Last weekend I was driving my snowmobile fast in the fields when suddenly I heard weird bangs, my snowmobile slowed down and I lost control. I stopped, thought it was the clutch but it looked fine, so I got back on it as if nothing happened, but it did it again a few minutes later. I looked more carefully and I noticed a long black piece of plastic coming out from the bottom of the sled. I was able to go back home without problems by driving slow but now my problem is fixing it.

I don't have a trailer, neither a garage and the only person who could move my snowmobile is busy. I was wondering if changing the sliders outside is possible. If not, is it possible to drive slow for a few kilometres to reach my friend's garage?

The snowmobile is a 1993 Skandic II.

Upgrade to Dupont slides, well worth the money. If you have to you can open up a window on each side with a utility knife to tap the old ones out and the new ones in... Use a torch to burn off any fibers made from the cuts...
If you haven't already, first get it inside and completely thaw it out b4 moving forward...
