Scouted out our route in the motorsport area yesterday. 12-15" of snow on the ground.
Our run will not be for the faint of heart. I ripped my soft top and Tab took out a mirror. Lots of winching and off camber stuff. We had 3 rigs & spent about 4 hours in the park, never touched the rocks and never touched several spots we intended to hit.

Gonna be fun.

I'm going pre-running soon. I plan to run all groomed snowmobile trails. It'll be great!

Is their travelers insurance offered to cover body damage on these trips?
Just wondering are the some of the trails impassable to the full size guys?

Youre probably not hard core enough, but if you think you can keep up...



Besides, you have a knack for getting into trouble.

Some trails are hard for full widths but full size rigs might squish through

White rhino and renegade usually have a "tougher" run but usually noting is super hard core just most of winching and dirt bike sized trails

In two days of runs last year, my groups lost 3 windows, damaged at least half a dozen body panels, totally destroyed a CJ2a hard top and wasted several driveline parts........

.....Danimal and I will not be taking it that easy this year

The skinny pedal makes for a skinnier body on some of our trails :-)

In your case, you need more of what the skinny pedal is supposed to attach to...
