Conditions re really good right now. All the trails have snow cover. Off trail is getting real good. There is 6-8 inches of fresh snow over a light crusty layer. You can pick you way through the trees without hitting anything unless you are carving hard or nose diving going down hill. Sounds like a little more fresh snow to the South. Areas close to the trails are tracked up but you do not have to go far to find untracked snow. I rode the M7 this afternoon and found lots of untracked snow and I never got more than 1.5 miles from Hardy or Trailshead. Off trail is 3+ feet deep.

Rode for 3 days this weekend. The area around 8 was awesome and surprisingly right along the trail was not tracked up and supper deep. Probably one of the best presidents weekend in recent history for snow conditions.

It has been a tough snowmobile patrol season so far this year. We have responded to 20 reportable accidents which has included 2 fatalities. One involved a mother riding with her husband and 2 teenage childeren. The other fatality involved a child. One of the non-fatal accidents resulted in a DUI arrest. We also had a snowmobiler whom I knew well die of a possible heart attack. I was present at the accident involving the mother. She was alive and talking to me when I arrive but coded in route to the ambulance. I also responded to the heart attack victim. Today I came across a couple with a teenage girl on trail 3 South of 3B. They had stopped because the teenage girl was cold and not feeling well. I noticed she was shvering uncontrollably going into hypothermia. I escorted them to Trailshead by shortest quickest route I knew. When we arrived at the lodge she had quite shivering and could not get off the snowmobile or stand. We had to carry her into the lodge to get her immediately warmed up. She was an exchange student from Brazil. Her host family took her out snowmobileing in sub 0 temperatures. She was wearing light gloves and light 200 gram hiking boots. Her gloves did not completely covered her wrists and she was developing some serious frostbite.

That is sad to here. I have seen very poor trail etiquette with young people this year if the parents aren't giving them lesson of rules of the road or what. Please inform beginning sledders to stay to the right and ride single file. I've seen to much riding side by side. In sd, wy, and mt.

We gave up trail riding 20 years ago, too many close calls with speed bums and etc, not worth dying for, for us its off trail meadow to meadow or stay home.

Meadows are good. They are tracked up near the trails but untracked meadows can be found if you look. Especially way to the south near moon and south of 6 mile.
