Anybody got enough off that magic white stuff to go sleding yet, and how much do you consider enough.

We dont have any snow here yet, at this point a couple inches would be a lot to me [;)], but on a normal year out here on the plains a foot or so is nice...

I live in Mass in Berkshire County which borders Vt and Ny. Up in the hilltown the is about 16 inches there. We been riding for the last two weeks and put on around 120 to 130 miles so far. But at the end of the week they are saying rain. We have a good base rigt now and if we get 8 to 10 inches it will be great riding. We ride when there 6 to 8inches of snow.

Hmmm

I took this yesterday:



That was on a lake tho, about 2 inches of snow on the ice. That's lots. Need more on dirt though.

It's been snowing in town here the last couple days, got about 5 feet of base in the mountains around here. Not enough to ride out the garage(need 4"), but the mountains got enough for some great riding! With more snow in the forcast for the next 10 days.

Looks like moods are improving. I'd say we're about due for some snow here in Michigan. One thing that's better than last year is it has been cold enough to freeze the lakes up good. Now let it snow!!

It's supposed to be an Igloo, I guess at one point it used to be a resturant/motel. Now there is just a gas station(on the left) that I think is only open in the summmer. It's about half way between Anchorage and Fairbanks, we just use the parking lot there to unload. It's right off the highway, you can ride back into the mountains for about five miles off the highway there in either direction! A boondockers paridise!!!
