I did and quick search and couldn't find anything... I was curious do you guys think frozen ground with 4 to 5 inches of snow is enoguh to ride in? I wanna go up north and ride tommorow and the next day but im not sure if this is enough... thanks for the help!
whatever you feel comfortable with your sled in.. some people say 3 inches.. some say 3 foot! its al lup to you. i personally think about 4 inches is good. as long as your not on a road. if you do a search it hink you'll find a topic like this with lots of awnsers.
Just amazes me how often this is asked. Like arcticcatinc said it really depends on your personal preference. With your sled, ride it!! I'll ride 3" with my small sled but won't get the big sled out unless there is at least 8".
i am going to say 6-8 inches for my sled. but if there is 3inches out there and the weather man is not calling for more snow then ill ride on that. now if it comes to trails i want at least a foot and a good 6 inch base.
Once it is packed down you wont feel all the bumps any more but at first you gonna be basicly riding on the normal ground so be careful and watch out for rocks. There is more then enough to cool the sliders and heat exchangers so go ahead and ride have fun!
I ride on wet grasss, I mean is not like we get snow at our normal times anymore. Just a preference everyone is different. I know ppl that wont ride tell theres a foot or something close, all ride if theres 2-3 inches sometimes less. All ride trails that are down to 2 inches and have lots of dirt and stuff showing.. I figure carbides and sliders are cheap and sometimes it may be my only ride of the year if the weathers bad.
