186miles/300KM

 Emma Lake had just received a couple of good dumps of snow over the last couple of week ends. Having been there just the weekend before we knew how good it would be! We left Macdowall and took the North Cabin Road for the first time in years, and what a treat, it was as spectacular as I remember it, the first time we discovered it easily 20 years ago! We even checked out the fire tower and discovered that in case of an emergency you are hard pressed even to get on site because of their nice barriers and secondly if you wanted to climb the tower to get reception on your cell you'd discover the bottom of the tower fenced off. Like everything else something's always changing so roll with the punches and thankfully I have lots of fire tower pictures to enjoy from a different time. At least this weekend snow away from tree rows and forest areas out in the open has started to set up. In some fields 70- 80 MPH was obtainable, then back in others 500cc machines like mine or typical 121's were just toast. You may as well roll back on the throttle because Maximum power was only getting you maybe 45MPH instead of 35-40 MPH at part throttle in the deep DRY SASKATCHEWAN POWDER  But once back in some firmer snow Yahoo! Who wants MAXIMUM deep powder for an eternity, where in WORLD do you get such variety? In Saskatchewan!

Remember this question: Where else in the WORLD could you get such variety! Answer: ONLY IN SASKATCHEWAN'S NISBET FOREST!
