How many miles does avg. sledder ride each year

Postby Polar Randy » February 13th, 2002, 9:20 pm

I average about 1500 per season. My best season was 94, rode about 2400 miles. This year about 550. It doesn,t snow much near home(northern ohio) so we mostly ride in western N.Y. or Western P.A. Drive about three hours for each ride. I haven,t felt like chasing it up to tug(about 7 hours) or upper Mich.(about 9hours). Seems like EVERYONE is riding tug this year.

Usually around 3000 miles.

This year so far I have 1300 miles, but 1000 of them were put on 4-days last week. The first of the 4-days was 390 miles. This was in Northern Ontario, New Liskard, Timmins, Kap area.

I usually ride south of Ottawa or across in Quebec, but not much snow this year, although the Quebec trails have really come together the last few weeks.

Usually just over 1,000. This sucky season we have only put on about 300, but are going up this afternoon to the UP for 4 days. We'll see....

And around here, miles depend on how consistant the snow is. This year not too many.

I average 1200 to 1500 miles each year. This year I'm up to 835 miles. If I hadn't crashed my sled I think I would have topped 2400. Hopefully I'll be back on the snow for next weekend!

You sid you are 7 hours from the Tug. Was just up there this past Sat. Rode 130 miles. Trails were in REAL good shape despite the lack of snow and amount of sleds. Have been keeping track of conditions on several sites and from what I make of it the trails are even better now than they were Sat. May I suggest that if you want to ride, make reservations near Tug Hill ( Pulaski, Brewerton, Lowville, etc. ) and have fun. I would expect alot of sleds thid weekend due to the upcoming hoilday. Beware of a bunch if idiots riding black and yellow sleds. Had a group of 6-8 pass by in a very careless, dangerous, " I don't give a $hit " manner ". Otherwise, have fun.

Happy Trails.

This is my first season owning a sled, but so far I'm almost at 1000 miles - should be past it by the end of the weekend if the trails held up this week.
