My Winter - 2012
 
Well I am sure most of you know by now I love sledding (snowmbiling). I figured I would show you what this winter looked like to me. When I am not RAMing it I am ASSAULTing it (the snow) got quite a few pics, my buddy as a few videos that I dont have so I may link my youtube video from last winter as well. Enjoy
there she is :D

this cost me a month of sledding during the best sledding times and best conditions since 2009

here is that video from last winter, nothing special just messing around while my buddy tools with his sled, near the same place as my first few pics up north but this is from a year ago along a different power line

going to invest in a bigger paddle track for next winter, the one I have just doesnt move enough snow, the power is there but the crappy track trenches pretty bad which is why I get stuck. Also the only time I take pics is when someone is stuck so that is why they are all stuck pics.

nothing like how it looks out west but I make do on the flatlands as best I can. Only ended up with 650 miles this winter and it was the best since 2009, had 1450 miles last year and last year was terrible, the blown shock and mexico trip ate almost half the winter up. My sled is mostly the way it came new, have a Bikeman Performance muffler on it but it is loud so I only run it when riding off trail because the cops really dislike it, and its LOUD, wasnt on in my video. Painted all my vents white and back bumper black, I think next year it is going to get a ful exhaust and "programmer" for a bit more power and better fuel mapping. Braaaaaaaaaaaap

Great pics!
What is the paddle height on your track right now? Hard to tell, but in pic#1 it looks like about 1-1/4".

thanks Brad, it is 1.352 so about 1 3/8, I am thinking maybe 1-1/2 or maybe 1-3/4 problem is the bigger you go the worse the trail and ice riding becomes, the risk of ripping off paddles and the more it costs to stud. I am missing a few lugs now so I think before something happens to it I will change it up, plus a new bit bigger one will help off trail which is where I do alot of my riding

Cool pictures man. I love those gopro cameras. I use one for wakeboarding.

Nothing like our winter down here. 28 or so was the coldest and that was for like one night haha.

thanks! the go pros are deffinetly awesome, I am thinking of getting the HD hero 2 this fall, I need a faster laptop for the videos though thats why I dont have any of them from the winter. We had some june weather right after we got this snow, then it got colder again, let me tell you it is alot easier to adjust to the warm weather than the cold LOL
