ATV'ing in the snow. Had a great tour out in the boons today with my buddy, we broke 90% of the trail with our quads, only happened upon a couple of sections where others had been before us. Were out for a good four hours, it was -11C (12F) which wasn't too bad with a few layers on, but it cooled off a bit as we began to lose daylight (-14C, 7F) and that made it a bit cold through the helmet.

All-in-all, a great day with some absolutely beautiful scenery!




Stopped and did a bit of plinking with the .22's at the hunting camp on the way back as well, which put a nice end to the day.

Looks like an incredible place to be! Whats the range on an ATV with a full tank? 4 hours seems like quite a bit of riding.

My AC 450 holds over 5 gallons. I get nervous around 100 miles of riding.

Depends on the riding. I still had 3/4 of a tank after this jaunt, we can go for a full day and if it is just casual through the woods stuff, I may end up with 1/4 tank at the end of it. It's injected, so I think that's a part of it. Mine is a tad harder on fuel than my buddy's 850, but the difference is almost insignificant.

It really is. Some of the deep snow areas, I swore we were going to get stuck, but we never did. Closest we came was going through the swamp at very close to the beginning of the trip where the snow had insulated what was below it, making the ice really thin, which we readily broke through. Mashing that up slowed you down, but they pawed on through it.

Be careful. Several people in my area died while ATV'ing when they hit the trees.

Generally, one doesn't go fast enough to make that an issue. If you are flying through this stuff, you are doing it wrong.

Yes, given the terrain there, it looks to be slow going on a sled, too. There isn't much snow here right now, so snowmobiling isn't much of an option. It's also -31 C, so I'm not exactly running to an ATV, either.
