Always wanted to try it! My uncle that has the summer place in Orondo had one and he and his buddy that lived in the Lake Wenatchee area would ride for miles on trials from his buddy’s backyard to wherever and back. His buddy passed away and my uncle ended up selling his ski before I could ever go out with them though.
Right now funding the kids private school, sports activities, music activities, etc they are the priority…But one day perhaps I will get a snowmobile when we have property somewhere east of the Cascade crest!
Aren’t the models still calling for a weakening of polar vortex later this month? I know that doesn’t always presage colder weather for us in pac NW. But it would sure be nice to shake things up a bit. Regarding EPS discussion, I definitely prefer that in the long range than riding the model to model variances of the single control forecast. Bottom line is it’s all pretty worthless outside of 8-10 days, depending on general pattern.
To Mossman, I gotta to say you have to try snowmobiling. I've seen your hundreds of images on your jetski so it isn't that different. But in the middle of winter on top of 15 feet of snow with snow covered mountains everywhere is a world unknown to most. Give it a shot. Of course all the different hobbies need $$ which sucks. Snowmilizer will point you in the right direction if you want to try.
