I haven't been able to get out once yet this year. This is due to a lack of snow. Even if I had snow I am still waiting on parts to get my sled together. I dropped it off today to get all the cracks welded so it doesn't break in half. We got about 8 inches (with no base) and I would be pretty damn tempted to go out if my sled was ready, so it is probably better that it isnt, but it would be pretty nice to go for a ride. Anyone else in my boat??

This is my back yard..... pretty dismal after all the blowing around. Lakes are a bit slushy as well.

My cousins kid would ride the kitty kat around our farm up north. Literally he would make a huge circle into the field and around the house/buildings. We would know he needed gas when we didnt hear him come around the house anymore. That kid would ride all day if he could.

Haven't even brought the sleds out of hibernation yet. Been a serious lack of snow until Sunday, when we got between 4 and 11 in Minneapolis. Of course the forecast says 40 degrees or so for the next few days, so I don't know how much will even survive. We were in the central part of Minnesota (south of Brainerd, for those local), and got nothing but rain out of the system that snowed in the Cities.

I have a brand new 07 crossfire sitting in the garage with 0 miles because of a lack of snow... of course in Chicago, we only get a few snow days a year anyway, but I typically ride in Southwest MI, and their not getting any either... This SUCKS!!!

Still have a big 0 so far this year. It was the fourth warmest December on Record in Buffalo. We had a freak storm in October (sled was still in pieces) where we got 20" of snow....but even with that we are still around 10" below normal for this time of year. The lake is running 8 Degrees above normal and it will be 50 and Sunny tomorrow. The long range forecast 10 days out shows the lowest high temperature being 38 degrees. Last Winter was terrible from January on last year. I haven't ridden in almost a year. A YEAR!

Ya there is really nothing at all coming in the near future. This is the worst I've seen it.

A big fat f'in 0! We heard runours of good condition around Mt. Tremblant (Quebec). Made the wife mad when I told her we were leaving @4:00 today, be back tomorrow night sometime. My buddy made a few phone calls to some local shops, clubs. Turns out they're not grooming yet and its raining. We're not going anymore.

I put 3/10 of a mile on grass, NO SNOW and it dont look good for the next 2 weeks either. We are currently stuck in a 15 to 20 deg above normal temp trend. THIS SUCKS. What sucks even more is that we have been getting pounded with moisture falling in the form of rain, because it never goes below 34 at night!
