Latest I've ridden here in Colorado was the first part of June.Headed to Spring Fling tomorrow, it will be my first time riding in May on snow.
This time of year you don't even need a mountain sled out here... short track flat land sleds can go just about anywhere, especially in the mornings when the snow is like concrete.Ol Revs still go where the new ones go
Just take a little more time
I picked up a '81 Elan couple years ago... it's in good over all shape, but need engine rebuild. Previous owner left it out in the rain, and got water in the jug. Only paid $50 for it.Got her for a birthday present last year from my lovely GF. Pretty clean, just pulled her apart and gave her a once over. Love riding that little sled.
Next time stop and ask the guy what kind of Avalanche Beacon he prefers. :lol:I'm not saying they wreck the trails (and I agree with the sxs thing) it's just exploding the last couple years. I saw a guy in Minoqua with a mountain sled, back pack and a shovel Sticking out of his backpack! You can't go off trail in Wi, there's a town or tavern every 20 feet! What do you need that badly on your ride that you need a backpack and I don't even know what to say about the shovel......
I totally get the 'real off trail, out west, mountain guys', but this guy, like many I'd guess, was just a wanna' be, and just like the XRS, they'll cry the way it performs (on a trail) and Doo will cater to them and the cross overs will soon come with a 15-120 x 1" track. lol.
(I get riled up way to easy when there's no snow, lol)
