couldn't play the audio right now, so don't know if you said. looks like you did well on un-groomed trails? or is that a snow mobile track I saw?

Riding the virgin trails was much easier than the few snowmobile tracks that were out there.

Snow conditions aren't always the same and the snow was better to run on virgin trails if you could. That will change with the freezing rain that's moving in as the trail conditions will change completely. Changing tire pressure is the key when trails conditions change to help with riding.
