Anybody been snowmobiling yet?

Looks like I'll be heading out this week or right after Christmas. I'm done with school in one year...I might be looking for a job further up north to support my hobby

We need a bit more snow too. I think I'll be holding off until after Christmas. I have more of an "intermediate" track on my ZR, a 136"x2" track, and the same on my Polaris, only the lugs are 1.5". I just serviced them both today, I miss smelling the old two-strokes during the summer. I'm almost ready to go, just need to service the old pulling rig.

Got 24" today and will probley get 24" tonight. Looks like we will get around 30-50" over the next few days so I'll be taking the machines out for a ride this weekend.

Ouch!

Last year was a great year in the Central Idaho mountains. But, this year appears to be off to a bit of a slow start. Good thing is that the weather guesser is calling for storms next week.

Went today for a short ride with my son on his 120. Really cannot go to fast but we do have enough snow for trail riding. I would stay off the river bed for a little longer until we get a few more feet of snow...

We have gotten some good storms the past couple of days and a couple of good ones are coming. Looks like my first outing of the season will be this Thursday
