Just because it looked rotten, that didn't mean it was completely rotten!

OK that looks like a pretty good size tree.


This is exit "Stage Left"!


One of these lighter trees "Bow strung to the ground" with a very unusual early heavy snow sprang up on contact and rang my bell, breaking the lower portion of my full face helmet completely thru.


An old back road corridor with some light trees down.


When we encounter a tree down on the trail it is very important that everyone gets slowed down quickly, arm signals help identify a problem right away.


Near the burn after a lot of wind we will often find some trees down on the trails.


-Not just our Fleet sleds, but many of our sled'n Buddies carry
Bowsaws and hatchets.

-Many of our sleds are equipped with under hood Slow Cookers these are handy on full day rides where time for an outdoor cookout or access to a small town for lunch is not on the options list. You decide how when and where we chow down!


Everyone pitches in to help remove the deadfall.


We just go around some of the largest trees when it's possible.


Some trees are so large, your just thankful it's not on a trail.


Even if you  can clearly go around, a tree this size is worthy of a few snaps.


The snow is deeper and softer near the trees, so watch they don't reach out and grab you.


Yours truly was being a smart _ _ _ here and got hooked on this tree by one ski, and I was swung around into the bush. Handlebars bent (I was hanging on!) ..... ego
...... not necessarily in that order!


Fortunately in this incident the operator wasn't hurt, only the snowmobile. And it is all cosmetic. At the time the sled was going maybe 10mph. This happened about 30 difficult miles north of Tobin Lake dam. 

This Jackpine spear was laying almost parallel to the trail with the small end just into the track. The right ski kicked the jack pine spear up where it hooked into a slot in the hood. As it drove into the hood, it also bent until it poked out sideways through the gauge hole. When it broke, the next 5 ft also snapped off and landed in the trail behind the owner of this Arctic Cat.


Some trees remain completely hidden until you pass right over them!


"HOW IN THE $#%%! DID YOU GET A TREE STUCK THROUGH THERE?"


Sometimes, it's the same person involved in tree problems!

LEARN FROM OTHERS MISTAKES!
