poor mileage usually ties back to carbs. they may need a cleaning. also the float level in the carbs could need adjusted as well as the needles.

clutching, clutch condition, belt condition as well as the snow conditions will have an effect as well.

10 doesnt really sound all that bad depending on snow condition and riding style. i would think 10-12 as average.
