It is about time to replace the wheels on my Marwe 610s. I know

Will oil prices kill XC?

I agree that it is significant but enough to kill the sport? probably not.

you may see some areas do a bit better. Most if...

Will oil prices kill XC?

I do think the snow mobile community will feel the pinch harder for the
reasons you mention. Grooming will be impacted greatly. There are numerous
areas that groom with volunteers and donations,...

Marwe Question

I think I saw a picture in Silent Sports a couple years ago of someone who
used the Jenex brake on Marwes. I don't have the issue anymore but maybe
someone else recalls this. The Jenex brake goes...

Economic strategies for trail systems...

It's not just yuppies that want high quality grooming. At our local trail

2008 Birkie

One thing that will be interesting to see as time goes by is how many people
do the classic. There were probably 15-20 elite wave skiers that opted for
the classic this year.

Pilot Classic - Why

Seems like the main problem with the classic pilot is that the spring gets

Strap on bindings?

You could try a Berwin binding. I think Akers out of Maine still sells
them. They are designed to be used with pack type boots but would probably
work with the boots you have. Don't expect much...

Best pant for very cold and windy conditions - windproof front and back, or windproof front only?
