Has anyone been around Watson area on the trails in the last week? Looking at maybe making the drive up on Saturday, but don’t want to be rattling our teeth on icy hard trails.
Oh yes..Every weekend many trailers going north past our yard on highway 35..RevM&S, just wondering if you are seeing many people from south up there riding?
We drove up to Naicam last Saturday. Forecast was calling for a slight chance of flurries and less than 1 cm. A mile north of Watson, hit the whiteout. Took almost 40 minutes to get to Naicam. Waited for a half hour and was only getting worse, so we slowly made our way back to Watson. Visibility was about 50 feet in front of the truck at best. Thankfully it as just massively heavy snowfall and next to zero wind. Didn’t drive out of it until half way to the truck stop at the Yellowhead turnoff. So sleds rode the trailer for 6 hrs and never even got fired up. But we weren’t going to risk riding on unknown trails in very little visibility and then driving home in the blizzard after dark (biggest fear was what if the wind picked up). On the bright side, we got out of the house for 6 hrs.Blowing snow and Minus 40C wind chills for the next few days..Ugly!!!!
