30" of new snow by me in a two week period.  :thumbsupsmileyanim:
We should be at or over 30" of snow in February after the snowstorm today. There is much more snow in the forecast for the rest of the month. The previous record for February was 26.9".

Last few from the first ride of the season. Have lots more pics from rides 2,3,4,5 but no time to download right now.

Hoping this site does a rebound, b/c she's been barely alive lately....

General Snowmobile Discussion / Decent snow conditions (for once)....

My cabin has around 3-4 feet as a base, with light snow falling every few days. Just came back from a long weekend ride and saw some of the best trail and off trail conditions I have ever experienced in my area. Feels good to buy a new machine, and actually use it ! I have over 1,000 miles on the new sled so far, and I hope to get 1-2 more rides in before the season ends....

Here are some pics of ride #1, just after Christmas

We have enough snow now that there is plenty to groom. I went across Peltier Lake yesterday and was concerned that I would make it across with the 18" of fluffy snow on top of the slippery ice underneath. I have 195 miles on the new sled so far and a happy sledder.

Very nice !

I was sure we'd all be doomed with new sled purchases (of having a bad snow year) but so far, I've had some pretty decent conditions by me in the UP !
Trip #4 is this weekend  :thumbsupsmileyanim:
We got another 5" or more of new snow last night and should have over 2 feet of snow so far this month just north of the twin cities. It is getting to the point where I don't dare do any off trail riding, especially on lakes. I have snow shoveling duty at church, plus cleaning mine and a couple other driveways. Too tired to go sledding today.
