If there's a mountain sled to ride without the insurance/1000 dollars a week fee, there's a chance someone could make some good cash on me.
Secondary thought is that we should make a slednutz trip calculator...where you enter in the amount you have to spend, and it spits out a list of places you can afford to ride...this based upon people who have gone there and ridden and have kept track of what they spent...
The meatballs are contemplating a trip at about the same time Rich, but we don't have any solid plans yet. We have traditionally head to West, but Cooke was our destination last year. I think West will be the destination this year granted they have snow. There are some pissed girlfriend issues, snow issues, vacation time issues for me, etc. We are still kind of in the air as to what's going on.
If I haven't gone on a trip yet by this time, I could be persuaded by good snow and a cheap price. Maybe to save some miles I'd try the Bighorns? Never been there. I'd prefer to stay somewhere cheap and avoid heavily ridden, popular areas. Do Bighorns fit the bill? Otherwise I'd probably like to do something in the Greater Yellowstone area (IP,West, or Tog) so I could get some skiing in on the same trip.
Yeah, Christmas is often sketchy in areas that get way more early snow than the Bighorns. On a good year though, there must be decent riding throughout the season. That guy and chick on Fanatics that live there and ride Cats usually have pictures of nice snow all season long.
I was on the Boonditcher Pro in fairly shallow spring snow. On that day, I think the Wolfsled would've kept up if I clutched and jetted accordingly. Or maybe I'm being seriously naive.
Shallow snow? The typical snow conditions liar would have called that 8 feet of powder ( since that's probably how much base there was.) You could do way more now on the Wolfsled out there in those conditions than you did on the Boonditcher because you've got more skills. (Or maybe it would be way worse because we'd try to get you stuck instead of trying to keep you unstuck)
Mud, what's the update on your plans concerning this week?
The destination is still up in the air. Slanteye and his friend Dave, Ratstang and myself are all planning on going, we just don't know where lol. Were you serious when you said you were going skiing? Slanteye is hesitant to do Tog because he has a trip planned there in March, but right now that looks like our best option.
