I did get out for 5 days this season and clocked about 1,200km. My sled ran great and had no issues. *knock on wood*

Was hoping to travel a bit this year but saving it for next year.

The trails when I used them were great. Lakes were a slushy and a couple hairy times but never got stuck. AGAIN *knock on wood*

Last time out the lakes hard packed and TONS of traction. Running about 160KPH at times on lake runs. Only 5 days out but I still had a great time!!!

My season ended at 5500 miles. Hope to double that next year with 900r.

I managed to rack up 1750 kms for the season locally. Not bad considering the late start to the riding, and blowing / replacing an engine. Normally do a 5 day saddle bag trip during the season somewhere which didn't happen this year because of pandemic restrictions. I thought the trails were very good overall considering the amount of snow we received in southern Ontario and the traffic volume on weekends. Early starts made for great riding.

Great that you got that in with the crappy season we had in Ontario this year, stay safe and hope we have a killer winter next year we're definitely do for a big dump in Ontario again soon lol, I just started getting used to my new to me sled and the seasons over. Last ride this year.
Depends where you are in Ontario. We had a late starts here (Jan 20 first real trail ride) but from then till it got warm he probably had more snow than the last 2 years combined. I did 1800 miles and didn't use the trailer.

Had a great season, only used the trailer 3 times. The trail crosses my property so it was nice to leave from home. This is the first time in many years that I did most of my sledding locally. Ended up with about 2200Km. Hopefully next year we get more snow earlier and it stays longer.

Not a terrible season for me, put on 4200 km with no issues. We were up in Swisha once this year and stayed overnight at the outfitters in one of their cabins. There was a little more snow and better conditions than the picture above :) Good service too.

On our trip to Le Verendrye outfitters we ran from Shawville on the 43 with no issues other than it was beat up bad on the second day for 90 km. The 43 has never been good to me including going from Swisha up to Timiskaming.

Oh I love that swisha run to temiscaming, it's usually the first shakedown run of the year, if there are no trees down. Two and a half hours from the mitzy gas station to the parking at the swisha when the running is good.

We didn't get a ton of snow in our neck of the woods, but once it came, it stayed which hasn't been the case in recent years. I doubled my usual season km, and rode a bunch of trails I have never been on before. And being on the south side of the 401, close to Lake O, I don't often get to ride from home, but I did a bunch this year. All in all, it was a great season.

Now, how many days until snow? I have a new toy I need to try out.

Ya you'll love the torque of that 1200, :)

Short miles for me this year, trail's didn't even open until the end of jan, and were pretty much done 1st week of Mar. so i never had my fill this year.

Just cleaned mine , just got to put it in the garage and shut her down, keeping busy and trying not to think about it too much.

All things considered, it was a pretty decent year for me. Last run was March 15. I would have done a last run to Gaspe, but hard to get people to commit to that this late on the year and last minute.
Hit just under 3200 miles this year with a few saddlebag trips.
Covid really messed things up.

Sent from my Pixel 5 using Tapatalk
Apsley, at least 100 feet deep. Bud says day before was 8 inches of black ice next day only 3. He got it out and back to the cottage.

I was able to log about 1200km unfortunately. our local trails were closed by our local health unit. Not a lot of snow. trails were "yellow" all winter. rain and warm temps killed off the snow pretty fast.

Did manage to find some new trails once they opened up. No mechanical issues which was nice.

Did get to pilot buddy new 900T around the lake some. Feels heavy compared to my 850
