Ridden there several times. There are some good areas, but the more "public" areas like Forester was kinda lame. I won't go back for the simple reason the locals DO NOT WANT SLEDDERS THERE. All skiers....found some very hostile people in the gas stations, restaurants, and lounges. Actually had the lud nuts on my truck loosened by some kind soul. And ya....the rear wheel fell off with 2 sleds on the deck. Bastards.

WOW, hard to believe.
My wife's family is from Fairmont, and I have met a few local sledders over the years but they are not around to take me up to a few areas (do like hooking up with experienced riders for the first time in an area)
I think the locals better start liking sledders since the snow at the ski hills has sucked for many years now, and we (sledders) don't need the ski lifts and runs (we make our own)the thing that attracts me is there is not many people sledding there (more snow for me!!)

Hit a rut, tried to pin it through some trees(bigger than it looked.
Did a superman (without my sled) and here is the result.

Its off of a Polaris,and had to do some trimming to fit it.
The areas I normally ride are all under heavy snowfall warnings, and is to be sunny on the weekend, but cold, so I might head out.
