Nah, it's been in the snow plenty, but it's well north of 500,000km, and has had a hard life.

For the time being I'm gonna patch this back up and do a coolant flush...it got filled with creek water a while back, so it could use a clean out I think.

Well we got hit hard with a foot and a half of wet snow in town, never mind the hills over New Years so we missed the hangover run due to no gas or power anywhere close and no eta on getting power. We did sneak in a few hours Friday though close to home to see what the local mountain got for snow and it was good stuff. Tough right out of the parking lot. Used our home built push pad effectively.

Is your guy's snow normally more fluffy? Like dry and won't stick into a snow ball?

Just curious how different it is from us. We normally get very wet snow that sticks together well and can sometimes be crawled on top of.

We also usually get freeze thaw cycles each day, even at higher elevations, which is what makes "Sierra concrete"

Our weather is all over the place. But itís usually pretty dang cold, then every couple weeks itíll warm up above freezing. Then cold and more snow. So we have some spots with sugary snow, with crust a foot down, then sugary below that. But itís really all over the place. Yesterday is was sugary then it started to pack, and it became snowball snow. Then got cold and sugary again. Never know whatís going to happen

Gotcha, so not too far off from us. It seems like the sugar happens for us when it snows at near 32* then clears out and gets really cold. But who knows.

Rain has been messing up our January snow wheeling. Managed a couple good runs.

Glad we aren't the only ones. Had a decent start, but then rain, and what seems like 2 weeks of clear weather.

Well after 6+ weeks of blue skies and 70* weather we are supposed to get a pretty decent storm this weekend. I got my tracks on and beefed up the weak anti rotation mounts. Can't wait to blast through some pow

We getting some snow also



Thought I was being smart by riding 2 tires on the dirt. At some point the dirt went from mostly flat to a huge berm



Tracks are going on now.
