Where's the snow?
« on: December 17, 2018, 11:35:21 AM »
My son bought his first new to him sled, a 2014 Summit and some friends have also got their kids a new used ride and were itching to try them out this Saturday. Plus a friend has a new one he wants to break in. If you live in the following areas, I would appreciate if you can give me snow report.

What you got for snow levels at: 

Calling Lake area

Fox Creek

Swan Hills

Edson/Hinton


Thanks

Not much any place sooner, it's about the same right across the province as far as I can tell. A bit more maybe in the Smith country, it might be worth a try for them to head into Smith or Hondo and try some trails.

That's what I'm hearing too, thought maybe one of those got a dump vs a few flakes when Edmonton got the big one.

Thanks Sonny, she is lacking so far this year. Looks like Swanny Hills may have something.

I hate this trend the last number of years. Snow then thaw, the dam ice in the yard and in my pasture is a bitch. I bought a new snowmobile back in 99, we had no snow for a few years then to, I beat the hell out of it trying to go into remote lakes to fish because of it. And Iím a gentle guy on my gear. Tell him to try and be patient and donít go with not much snow cover, takes years of live off a machine.

Were not ditch bangers that go hard or go home lol. We know the pitfalls of early season with no real base. Were going north to our moose hunting spot N of Calling lake, gonna check out the bck woods wall tent site and see if anyone has found it and using it since we stopped going 4 yrs back. Moose n& deer numbers are real low. So it will be a leisure tour of a place I know like the back of my hand and see if the deer and moose sign has got better.

We can wait for mother nature to dump her white gold before we open up the throttles.

We were out fishing in the Seibert lake country yesterday and there's getting to be quite a bit of snow, lots of machines out and about plus we just got another few inches last night.

I went out to wmu 516, my ole stomping grounds. Maybe a foot at the most but we put on 88 kms and had a great first ride. Best part, lots of game sign where we went. That's a plus for a zone that has been hurting bad.


Fox Creek tomorrow as they got a bunch in the last few days :) It's on now.
