If You See This Message ... I'm Out Of The Office (Snowmobiling, Of Course): VIDEO
It was time to turn our Ski-Doo demo units back into the dealer so we took the opportunity to get one last ride in on them before taking them back to Yellowstone Adventures in West Yellowstone, MT.
More than just getting that one last ride in on the Ski-Doos, I wanted to get rid of the bitter taste I still had in my mouth from my last ride of the season last spring (a year ago). A year ago it was raining and the snow was, well, a mess.
I had high hopes the ride this year would be better and I
was definitely not disappointed. The snotel site close to where we rode in
Wednesday the sun shone all day and with a few inches of new
and completely untracked snow we set out to
Although the snow was hardpacked and spring-like in a few areas, for the most part, we were riding in a few inches (3-4) of fresh powder. And yes, it was powder because it has been so cold. The snow was best above 7,500 feet (we rode up to 9,800 feet in places). It was definitely melting down low by the time we got back to the truck about 2 p.m.
It was a great ride on April 24. I've completely forgotten about last year.
So for those of you who have put your sleds away for the season, I'm one up on you.
