I have a friend who's interested in riding our sleds up to Knik Glacier outside of Palmer this weekend. Both of us are fairly novice riders, and will be on Yamaha Venture-Lite touring sleds. I love the Willow area for riding those sleds, and am admittedly apprehensive about a run up the Knik without a good trail, but am willing to take educated advice from this group. Would you recommend it for folks like us with our gear? Or not?
Having not done that run, I don't know what to expect. If the reports indicate that it's a walk in the park and anyone can do it, then that's one thing -- but if folks say it's a pretty technical ride with little trail and lots of deep powder and thin ice, that that's completely another...
