Drove up Sunday in rain from Midland to Trout Lake then it turned to snow and pretty much didn't stop until Wens.. Most snow I have seen on the East end of the UP in some time. A little chilly on Wens. morning, it was zero when we hit the trails and it was only an issue because they were so flat and fast. Powder play was great even on shorties, only wish the group had wanted to break more logging roads open and that my 136 hadn't blown a chain.

You got that right. The snow was great from US2 north. Great picks.

The Firecat does pretty good, the rider doesn't have a lot of experience in the deep stuff so blasting straight through was more common than carving.
Snow was pretty set up, even on the ponds you could stop and start with 121s and not be worried about trenching.

We did some logging roads and he didn't have much trouble busting those open. A deeper lug would be nice.

Eight of us were there Feb. 10 thru 15, and went to all the places you have pics of. It snowed feet instead of inches! Great pics!
