Here's a video for Zeezlebub and other video fans. Internet is too slow here to really upload much video.

Looks like you guys are having a good time. Still jealous of the time you guys get in the winter.

We got a place up in IP too. That's the greatest snow i've been on. but i'm not one to talk about that. If you go a bit south from IP Villiage the fields by the Snake River and Osbourne Bridge is some great powder. There area some great spots to go Water skippin out there too. But be careful i sunk my 600 two years ago and just about lost the sled. But a dump on the side and the purple beast was back within a few pulls of the rope.

Sawtelle is sketchy stuff. I've stayed away from the steep, and go for the deep. We had a buddy die in a avalanche running up Sawtelle years ago. He was the guy to get me my first sled. 97 Kitty Cat. He was a great friend and rider.

Ride safe and have fun.

A good trail ride is going down to Mesa Falls. That's south of IP Village, and just before Last Chance. It's a quicky going from the highway, but the Falls at the end are pretty cool. Another place you could go is Bishops Mountain trail. When it's groomed, you have a couple miles of straight shot that you can really see what your sled can do. The 600 got going 90 during Christmas Break.

Of course you could ride up at IP all the time like me, but i dunno. Just throwin some stuff out there. Great snow and plenty of trails.

We were planning on riding down to Mesa Falls. It didn't happen. I'm going to ride up to Mesa Falls and Cave Falls from Ashton in March. Probably best to save the scenery/trail rides for a day when there isn't fresh offtrail snow. We only had one day when the snow wasn't fresh and powdery because of an ice crust on top. We also only had one day that wasn't cloudy, but I guess all that fresh snow doesn't fall out of a sunny sky.

Where are you from in Idaho, tdub?

Baller pursues his tree fetish. If your chainsaw is dull, just use your Edge!

Dear Rubi, are you old enough to adopt me? If you are creative enough, I would only need a decent excuse to leave work. I can pay for any expenses I incur. In one month's time (provided my car proves to be just as good of a hauler as Gerbil's butt dart), I can afford a cheap mountain sled.

Aim higher, Gerbil's car got outdone 100% by a lowly Chevy Cavalier.
