I didn't even ride much in Minnesota this year. Road around my property a little and that was it. I seen people riding on the ice trails, did not look enjoyable to me.Season was over in Brainerd about the 2nd week of feb. warmed up turned it all to ice, then no new snow in feb or March. Wife and I got out one day and rode the 40 degree mashed potatoes. People were still riding but it wasn’t what I’d call fun so we waited for the snow that never came. I really need to start running west again. Used to make a trip or two a year but then got busy with the kid playing ball and it didn’t work schedule wise. Now that we could we haven’t. Maybe 20/21 will be the winter.
This was the year that put me over the edge for selling my MN sled. Going to pick up a set of tracks for the SxS and just play in that in the MN winters going forward and just plan to sled out west. If by chance we get hammered here in MN I'll break out the 174 and play in it. LOL
I rode a 162 here in mn for a couple years. It was a bit of a handful on the tight trails but I could drop into any ditch line I wanted and as long as I kept the rubber side down I knew I was blowing out the other side.
