My favorite spot is in Kettle Falls, Washington. Lots of trails & headed home in the evening always beautiful sunsets. Attached is my picture.

My favorite place out of the top 10 trails would be the Ice Caves near Kearney, Ontario. That would be a beautiful place to go see.

My favorite place to ride is the Springfield Dam loop located in Springfield, VT. It's pretty local, typically well groomed, and the perfect balance of fast straights plus fun twisty sections...plus some great scenery along the ride.

Of the Top 10 Trails listed in the article - I would vote for riding in Bretton Woods, NH near the Mt. Washington hotel. Looks absolutely beautiful.

My favorite local place is in the western U.P. This pict is of the 2 trail just east of Wakefield. The trail has a bypass around this hill but it's always fun to test your skills especially with a couple feet of fresh snow.

Of the 10 locations shown I've been to Grand Lake Colorado back in the days when 121 inch sled were the only OEM equipment available. Been in the mountains there when we lost our way. Caught in a whiteout for over an hour when we just had to sit and wait it out. Went to Gould up over Illinois pass. After going down Chicken hill 4 times I finally decided I could climb it . Went all the way up and over first 2 times and finally gave my wife the 8mm. Got stuck about 20 feet from the crest and never been in that position B-4. Made the mistake of pulling the track loose with out turning it around. Managed to straddle the sled and slide all the way down backwards. She did get it all on film.

Default Deer Mountain Dummer NH

13 mile woods in northern New Hampshire the trails are awesome in the winter (thanks to the people / clubs that run the groomers) and you get to use most in summer with your quads .
out of the 10 i think the Omni Mount Washington Resort, Bretton Woods, New Hampshire is the one i will have to go with it is a nice ride to get there by car or on your sled .
