VERY LITTLE SNOW ON BAY! At least where we fish. After yesterday it pretty much wiped it out. The only chance it looks like is tomorrow morning. Was some slush yesterday but not much. Liquid cooled sleds were awful warm today beware.

I just put scratchers on mine. I doubt it will over heat now. They throw up so much chips. Right onto the heat exchangers.
At least soap slides. I wouldn't let it keep me from going.

There was no snow this morning when I went out. Slick but not too bad. BUT, It's really slick out there after that dusting this morning. Wished I had my creepers!!!

I'd definitely run a quad if you have one. Your gonna overheat a liquid cooled sled or beat up your slides with the current conditions.

I got studs on the way for mine. Sucks theres no snow, but maybe it will set up good this way with the lighter winds. I'll wait a week or so for a good dumpin. We know its coming, sooner or later. Atleast right now we can see the bad areas alot easier:D

I was out scouting last week BEFORE it warmed up and my liquid cooled sled with studs overheated. Slides were fine but my temp light came on twice after putting on 3-4 miles of cruising the crack out of the mouth. Needless to say I plan on picking up some scratchers after this warm up or waiting untill we get a few more inches of snow.

Make sure you install tunnel protectors, will save your tunnel if you ever bottom out.
