I predict JACK SQUAT for the northeast!!! Our winters pretty much suck anymore. Consider yourselves lucky living out there. We're lucky to get ANY snow anymore. Even in the lake effect areas the snow these past several years has been marginal.

Funny you say that Dan because never in my life have I bought a new sled until a couple of years ago, but the very season I buy my brand new sled the snow pretty much stopped. I'm 36 and I've been riding since I was 8 and we always had at least decent snow until.... Yeah. I'm starting to consider a sacrificial sled burning or to somehow fake out the snow Gods and make them think I got rid of all my stuff.... lol!!! I'll try anything at this point. If this year gives us crap conditions here I don't know what I'm gonna do.

I could move out west, I'm pretty sure the east would get pummelled immediately. Of course, the snow would dry up entirely in the west if I did that. I know! I could just suffer a debilitating injury that would make me sit out the entire season. That would ensure plenty of snow for everyone!

Or you could just trailer to the snow, where ever it is!
I do! I put on 1200 miles on the truck to ride 300, with Renegade!

I frequently go 140 miles round trip in the truck for a 50 mile ride on the sled. You do what you have to do ;) That's a LONG way from 1200 like KC does,though! Most days, I can hardly lift my legs after the 50 mile ride, 300 would be impossible!

We left here and went to Green Bay they had 16" of fresh snow got there and found out the trails were closed! So we went towards Big Bay Mi, had dust on our skis! Then went over the bridge and found snow down by Cadi Mi! We went all the way around Lake Michigan.

in cadillac- where i always went. lol
i learned a valuable lesson.

I've been driving to my sister's house to ride every time the past couple years. It's a 150 mile trip each way. Even up there the conditions were marginal a couple times. The trail out to Tupper Lake wasn't even open the last couple trips because the snow wasn't deep enough to cover the railroad tracks. (Seasonal railroad)

Lower Michigan got about 12 inches of lake effect more coming down tonight. Might have to see where I can go riding early in the year.
