This is my first year with a sled. We just got our first snow storm last night, about 10". I'm heading to my cabin in southern ME near Limerick in couple days. I havnt been up there in over a month, Im not sure if there was a couple inches up there already but I know there hasnt been any real snow fall yet besides last night. How much snow do you need on a trail? how much snow do you need on a lake? to get there and enjoy the sled.
