    That's what their calling for, then single digit lows Saturday. Warming closer to normal temps Sunday. Forecasts beyond two days out are usually guesses here...it may change as you get closer.

    Also, I forgot to mention that I did increase the length and width since I'm 6'3 and have a safari deluxe. I'll post pics when it gets warm enough to test. It's currently -10F with -25 windchill.

    The great thing about my job is that I can make anything "on the way home". I spun by the trailhead and the road to Dacy is definitely closed until spring.

    Over 2' on the ground, that trail area gets a lot of snowmobile traffic so it's typically pretty packed down. I may venture back there this Sunday, if I do I'll let you know the conditions.
