Usually don't go off miles or kilometer, but I think it was around 900 "mountain miles" which would equal about 2,500 miles on the trail...

Depends on how the snow is. When there is good snow it is usually around 2000 + miles.

very cool. i love the scenery up there.But the farthest i have been is beaver creek.I was trying to get to anchorage but i had a run in with the guy at the border it was $5.00 to get across and the smallest i had was a ten and he told me he would'nt make change and if i wanted to go through i had to give him my ten.lol i almost busted into my asshole routine but then decided not to bother and turned around.lol

But the scenery is second to none. p.s. cant wait to see a pic of your sled sitting in your front yard.

Thanks, Man, I try not to do to much riding around the lake on my sled, prefer the mountains but I do take it out to the lake on occaision. I'll try to get a pic this winter. I can't believe they wanted to charge you to cross the border at Beaver creek. I've come through there many times and never had them charge me anything. Sounds like the guy was being an ass.

I just prefer the mountains. I ride at the lake when my wife insists that we are going to spend the weekend there. Normally during the winter I prefer to find some deep powder somewhere north and rip it up.
