  • Who wants to go riding???????????

    Looking for riding partners, im young and like to rip it up , yet experienced and a good trusting partner.

    Just bought my new 2007 Summit 550f with a 136x16 so got the same float as a 144x15. Went to big lake lastnight, to break in the sled a bit. For me its got decent power.

    Looking to take 1vehicle and as many sleds as we can get on a trailer and go ride places that have decent snow, been wanting to ride valdez or paxson.

    Let me know

    Fellow 550f guy

    I'm also rather new to snowmachining and bought a Summit 550f last year. I have been very pleased with it so far. Likewise, I'm anxious to find some snow for riding. I was at Hatcher Pass (Fishhook parking lot) on Sunday and did some hiking around. There is about 18 inches of beautiful snow and is good for skiing but they will not open it for snowmachining until there is 3 feet of snow. However, I wonder if the snow is just as good on the other side of the pass...no restrictions there and accessible via the Hatcher Pass road from Willow or possible boondog up the south side of Baldy. Anyway, as soon as a ride-able snow is identified I'm ready to go!!

          The wife is having a baby any day now so I can't wander far from home. After everything settles down I will be good to go.

              Let it snow!!

              Congrats to you Akmud!! I have a couple young boys and they are tons of fun and a great excuse to buy cool toys (snowmachines/fourwheeler). And Mr 550f I live near Palmer. Also, concerning your ride around Big Lake is it worth going back there to ride? Is there enough snow for riding on the trails around there?

                not really

                If you dont like bumpy rides its really not worth going there untill more snowfalls, it was really rough due to overridin areas. some parts of the trails have rocks showing. but if your desperate to just ride then go for it.

                I was thinking of drivin up to willow on sunday and checking things out if i get the new floor installed on the trailer i bought today.

                If your up for going maybe we could meet up that way and put some miles on the sleds.

                  Sorry I didn't get your message until now...but couldn't go anyway r/t having to work. What about Eureka later on this week? The trail report on the radio (Saturday at about 1230 on AM 700) said there was enough snow to putt around on the trail system there. I will log on around mid-week for your reply.

                    sounds good

                    Its allright, work comes first. I went up to willow and rode from 20miles north back to willow, via the trails along the glenn hwy. Turned out to be an alright ride, Pretty rough in spots and i rolled my sled down the ditch haha FUN!!!

                    Eureka sounds good, just tell me a day and time.

                      Paxon Eureka ect

                      Not enough snow any of those places between the valley and Summit lake.
                      just got back from the weekend ptarmigan trip adn we saw a few snowmobilers out there, but the snow depth is only around 8-12" almost everrywhere we went. they do have little trails here and there that looked ok, but it wouldn't take long to get bored of those little 1-2 mile jaunts.

                        Howabout west side of Hatcher Pass i.e. Willow drainage?

                        Thanks Jusin for the advise re: Eureka...I guess one must be patient and wait for more snow before heading in that direction. On the bright side, I finally talked with someone who drove up the Willow/Hatcher Pass road to access the snow on the West side of Hatcher Pass and they thought is was descent riding with 12-18 inches of snow, but you have to watch out for the rocks.

                        So 550f guy lets forget about going to Eureka (until more snow) and maybe head up the Willow/Hatcher Pass road?? Sorry you rolled your machine and hope all is well with you and machine.

                          Thanks justin for the information.
                          Didnt do any damage to the machine or me, it was kinda exciting.

                          Doug the idea of going to that area is good with me. Im not busy at all this week. So which ever day is best for you, i can drive up. Let me know your thoughts on day and time.
