Re: How much snow is enough snow???
Depends how much hyfax and carbides you want to buy. Using a high quality hyfax on the slides I've seen very little wear in the 150
miles of 6" snow and dirt riding I've done this year. Where the trails are well established, especially 4wheeler trails, I can get away
with 6" of packed snow. I can't however keep my XLT cool without running it in an over rich condition. As far as grass damage, a foot
is a good rule if you don't spin the track too much. It does very with temperature, though, because the reduction of insulation does as
much damage to grass as the weight of the sled....of course I only know from experience on hay fields. Plastic ski survive high speed
rock hits much better then steel skis, also. I prefer to wait for at least a foot of snow, but I couldn't wait this year.
If you can't buy what you want, BUILD IT!!
