^^ great news yammahappy. You are right we deserve this weather and "snowmobiling" needed this weather. We need more people passionate about snowmobiling and this season will definitely help. Thank you volunteers.

the value of used snowmobiles on kijiji went through the roof. when i bought mine used last year in port dover, everyone was ditching their sleds because of the horrible 2011-2012 winter. Now, my sled is worth signoficantly more if I sold it today (but I wont)

A great winter, indeed.

 

We're heading up to Parry Sound for a ride through North Bay, points east.

 

Father and son. As good as it gets. Thank you mother nature.

It's been a good year. To all the naysayers that cried about the no snow. Get out and ride. Look how many Km's of trails that are open.

Just got back from a 25 mile run here in Palmerston, Trails are mint! Just cold as all get out... Thumb was frozen after 20 miles...One of those days where you are afraid to open it up and pop a piston,

I think this year has been crappy for southern Ontario! Why do we always get 2 feet of snow followed by a huge 5 day melt a few days later and then super cold weather with little new snow! I have 200kms so far. By the weekend things should improve and hopefully the new snow stays for awhile. The temps in the west

make me nervous!

south of the 401 has been about same as last year for snow, nadda,  just colder. Hope by Saturday when she goes back together, there is enough snow to test it around the farm. Then have to put her in the trailer to the great white north.

The lake effect machine was working overtime here last night...

Woke up to an easy foot of fresh powered outside today and it's still coming down. My club has been full green for 2 weeks (first time in two years) so the riding was already outstanding, this is going to make it even better..

401 is closed from Brighton to Kingston... Most of the snowplows have been pulled off the roads... Wound how upset the OPP would be with me if I took the sled for a rip down the 401.... They wouldn't stand a snowballs chance in trying to follow me :)
