We have 1" right now. We usually get snow only every 2-3 years.

Supposed to be a storm coming in in 2 days. Keeping my fingers crossed. Far cry from last year when we had snow in Nov and a 300% snow pack for the year.

Our ski areas are doing well...both nordic and downhill. We had a close to 30" powder day a couple weeks ago and 16" the middle of last week with pretty good coverage. I am still harvesting fresh tracks with a little effort and not using the lifts. Skied 12k at the nordic center yesterday and conditions were excellent minus the drifting areas that aren't so great for skates. Redlodge, MT Jackson Hole MTN Resort and Targhee are doing okay. Pretty good backcountry opportunities as well IF you are careful.

We are on 1/2 mile of private road that I clear with this:



Just curious, but can you operate your 3-point snow blower with your tractor going forward, or do you have to be in reverse?


Reverse and to answer another question:

Sugarhill,
Nice looking unit! I just used my Kubota with front mount blower this morning to do four driveways. My neck will not handle using a rear mount blower! More power to you if your will take it! Those suckers sure can blow some serious snow can't they.


I actually sit sidewards on the fender so I can look both forwards and backwards. Pretty comfortable. Besides I like being able to still use the FEL.

I find one big advantage to blowing vs. plowing is no piles on the side of my road.

John,

Thanks for clarifying that you have to go in reverse for your 3-point snow blower.

As a follow-up to OBXcamper's question, is your canopy arrangement homemade or did you buy that somewhere?

Sugarhill, We need to know more!! I have the exact same tractor and am interested in your cabover cover. Homemade? and is that unistut framing?

BTW, very little snow in Va yet.



OBX,

Yes, homemade and all bolt together. It is perforated angle.

I leave the frame and roof on for the summer then add the Lexan for winter- it keeps the blowing snow off my face. Not a cab but MUCH less $$$$$.

I can send you better pictures if you would like.
