    Thumbs up Maybe????

    We are always looking for people to tour the trails with and pull a grooming drag behind them. We have the machines and gas and you do the driving. A 6 to 7 hour tour around Willow and get to know a lot of the trails.
    Now if you just want to cruse, that Thur. Fri. & Sat. all over Willow area and out up to 250 miles in day in the spring. Come out and check how easy it is to get all over the valleys from here!

    Default Trail Grooming..

    Can we bring our own machines, I just have to pickup a hitch to put on the snowmachine, I recently purchased a 1997 polaris indy trail touring, and need to drive it around to work the cobwebs off. It has been sitting on a stand for the last 4 yrs, and I got it running but need to run it for a while.. Oh yeah, also where to get a nother key made up for it, it only came with one key??

    Thumbs up When!

    Got to go to Anch. this Thur and Fri. Big State Snow TraK meeting. But I am up for anything after that. Polaris is easy for keys only 5 differant kinds, drive by a dealer and try a couple! I think i got 3 or 4 of them here!
    I groom on Mon. and Tues. with the big rigs. Yamaha 4-stoke VK and 4-stoke Bearcat!!! Come on out!!!

    I'd be interested in driving one of your sleds with a drag to learn the trails. PM me with a phone number/email to set this up. Thanks.

    Got a link to a trail map of this Willow trail system? I've never been riding up there, but it might be a fun trip as we expand our horizons off of the Kenai.

    Thumbs up Guys

    Just a note that the Willow area can be a great start for a trip or you can burn a whole tank of gas and never be more than 20 miles out. And still be in untract powder! Nice marked trails or wide open swamps.
    By the way we get about 9 miles to the gallon towing grooming drags.

    Default Info

    Any idea where I can locate a map of this trail system?

    Of course any other snowmachine trail maps in the area are appealing also...Biglake, Willow, Houston, Sutton and the like.

    tks,

    For a map of the area try your local snowmobile dealer. I picked up one for free at Eagle River Polaris last winter.

    That thread doesn't have any maps in it either.

    I tried to Google up a map but only found a site that wants to sell you a printable map for a subscription fee... sight unseen.

    Is there not a club or something up there that publishes a trail map like we do down in the Caribou Hills?
