Shane, have fun. We didn't get hooked up this year. We have had a decent year. Nothing spectacular. We are wrapping up the year now. The snow is still 8-10 feet deep, but all hard packed. Long tracks (ie 159") are really not much fun in the hard packed stuff. This weekend will probably be our last. We will take the shorter tracked sleds, 144", and play around in the trees and bang on the hills. Again have fun.
