For Slanteye anyways it gets you out of snow like this......

Well I guess I failed, the internet isn't fast enough to upload any damn pictures lol. Slanteye's phone should be blown up with pictures anyways lol. It's been snowing since we got here (ten mile inn) and we've probably got a foot of snow here at the lodge since arrival. I'd guess 3' fresh snow up top, may be the deepest powder that I've ever ridden in. Stucks are plentyful, air is not lol. We are told its going to stop snowing tonight so it should be clear tomorrow, but we were told that yesterday too and its still snowing. Not bitching but flat light and hard snow with cold is a bitch riding and keeping goggles clear. Mitch and I are representing SN here in the Snowies since Slanteyes pussy got wet and wouldn't come with us.

Bah, looks like that snow sucks. Glad I'm home here watching Tosh.O. Much more practical and smart to stay home and never snowmobile.

Wait, sitting on the couch all the time actually sucks! That snow looks awesome. Wish I was there. Too many negative variables to make this trip work for the Douglas County posse, but I wish we'd gotten our shit together sooner.

All I have for helmet cam footage is Mitch's, I will try to get some up today. Overall we had a freaking blast!! Snowed from the time we arrived on Wednesday until Friday night. Riding was rough on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday due to the snow and it was cold as hell on the mountain. Saturday was blue bird skies and epic deep snow. Was definately the deepest powder I've ever ridden in, I can't believe I'm saying it but it was difficult to get around lol. That was the first time I've ever felt my machine was under-powered or insufficient. The day provided some interesting stucks and some nice untouched fresh areas that will be bookmarked for future reference. Overall we had one hell of a short trip and left me wanting more lol. I'll find some pictures and video to put up shortly.

Man, I wish I would have went. I didn't think conditions would be that good based on the what the Snotels were saying. I won't lie and say I wasn't a bit hesitant to go before I had a shakedown run on my newly rebuilt diamond drive. Oh well, you can't win all of them.

I had a friend who did it multiple times help me just to make sure I didn't F it up. It ran fine in the UP and we had decent snow given the conditions everywhere.

Me and Mud are talking about the future. Something has to change before the group ride. I don't think we want to change the location to Marquette.

I'm sure we'll be fine, its a month away still. The forcast doesn't sound promising and the webcams look pathetic. But there is a base now, all we need is a kick ass LES and we're in the money!

Awesome pics!!!
wish I could have gone, but my sled is still sitting in the UP and I already had plans that I could not have gotten out of. I'm heading up Friday night. Will probably only ride up the hill to show the wife the lookout. Need to take the sled to the shop to get some work done. Plan is to go up on 19th the ride if anyone is interested.

I might be up that weekend, but might be towards Marquette if the snow is better. I think the Kesslers are having their snodeo that weekend or the weekend before.
