 141101V
...there is frost and steam and smoke in the air on this COOL morning!

e have completed our 2013 Project sled  transformation from Bush Whacker to  SNOCRUISE Prairie Max 600.

11:15 AM Unloaded making a couple spins.


11
:25 AM Time for some orientation and suspension adjustment that will better suite the rider.



11:08 AM
We hit the open fields and meadows near Duck Lake.

12:29 PM
And the FUN begins!

Surely your guide wouldn't take you into deep snow...and get you
stuck!



 

11:03 AM Snocruising the meadows!
11:04 AM Snocruising around while some team members of our group...
 141102V
help others get unstuck in the dry Saskatchewan powder.

Someone stuck getting a push out.

12:37 PM
We check out a porcupine walking into the trees out of harms way.



12
:41 PM Frosty helmets.

11
:03 AM Enough wild life, time to snocruise!
.

12:56 PM
Heading across the fields.
And
Saskatchewan  meadows
 
141103V
 

1:02 PM
Stuck in this nice little hollow.

11:03 AM Looks like a wrestling match going on there.

1:21 PM
Out of the breeze down in a hollow we have a visit.

1
:27 PM Holy moly! Not a track as far as the eye can see! It doesn't get any better than this!

This is what we have been looking for all day! Time to make
Tracks!

1
:35 PM Stuck! No pain, no gain!

The team springs into action digging out the stuck SNOCRUISER
!

Extra help arrives.

I just about submerge this special edition
Yamaha XTC-P 700 snowmobile and one quick responsive tap on the go pedal and she's just about air borne pivoting on the agile 121!
121's are FUN!

1
:47 PM In the back country we follow a nice trail, but the deep snow has us off balance in the trees! Stuck!

11
:03 AM Three tries for a dollar!

1:51 PM
We stop to put together a helmet that has come undone.


Every one waits while I repair this visor which seems to  have detached it's self from an unusual excessive inside pressure!

2:39 PM With the visor repaired the team fires up and  we head out looking for our next snowmobile wonderland.
I think someone was not using the NO FOG properly and was aggressively scarping frost off the inside of there visor which broke it off the helmet.


4:11 PM Heading back to Duck Lake across the fields.

4:20
PM The oil light is on, meaning that the oil is getting low, and it is time to take the precaution and check more closely.

One lad wearing a neck warmer under his No-Fog, and we have one lad fogged up out of the whole group!
Here is the instructions one more time!
NO FOG masks
The Original NO-FOG
High Performance breath deflector

4:35 PM The team is taking turns jumping Saskatchewan's FROZEN H2O...
 141104V
