The ground's frozen. I was just 4 wheeling on my pond last night haha.Originally posted by 91 Polaris RXL
[br]Even if the U.P. was to receive a foot of snow, the ground is not frozen. If you were one of the first sleds on the trails, you might have okay conditions, but more likely you would end-up riding on straight mud. Not snirt, MUD.
Many trails in the U.P. pass through swamps. Last year we were riding around the Paradise area the day after Christmas. By the time we were done that day, the front of our sleds looked like we'd been 4-wheeling.
It first needs to get cold (like teens) and stay that way for week, then fire-up the lake effect snowstorms and I would consider riding.
Also: No groomers will be out either. Clubs don't want to get those 24 ton machines stuck.
