Thanks for that. Very informative, especially the part about your arms freezing to the ice!

Helpfull good to know you never really think about that but staying paralell to the ice is a pretty common sense concept but if you were in the ice and didnt know it you probably wouldnt do it! Thanks

THIS GUY HAS GOOD INFO I KNOW FIRST HAND. DECEMBER 7/04 ME AND A BUDDY WERE RIDING AND I CAME OVER THE TOP OF A HILL PRETTY FAST AND THERE WAS A POND ON THE OTHER SIDE I HAD NO TIME TO STOP. I HAD TO MAKE A CHOICE IN ABOUT 1 SECOND WHEATHER OR NOT TO HIT THE BRAKES AND NOSE DRIVE DOWN ONTO THE ICE AND DEFINATLY GO UNDER, OR HIT THE GAS AND TRY TO MAKE IT ACROSS. I DID OPTION B. I MADE IT OUT IN THE MIDDLE AND IT WAS GOING DOWN!!! I STOPPED AND THOUGHT FOR A SECOND BEFORE I WENT UNDER. AS THE SLED WAS SINKING I JUPMED OFF AND TRIED TO A SPREAD EAGLE ON THE ICE AROUND ME. I WENT UNDER. YOU REALLY HAVE TO FORCE YOURSELF TO STAY CALM. YOU CAN PANIC EAISER THAN YOU THINK. WHEN I WENT UNDER I WAS KICKING MY FEET LIKE A BASTARD AND POPED TO THE TOP AGAIN. I CALMED DOWN ONCE I KNEW I COULD TRED WATER AND STAY ON TOP. LIKE HE SAID GO BACK TO WHERE YOU YOU WENT IN. THAT IS WHAT I DID AND I GOT OUT. I HAVE A ENTIRELY DIFFERENT RESEPECT FOR ICE NOW. IF THIS HAPPENS TO YOU YOU WILL KNOW WHAT I MEAN. MY ADVICE IS DON'T TAKE CHANCES ON ICE NINE TIMES OUT OF TEN YOU WILL LOOSE. IT IS A VERY SCARY ORDEAL. ONE SECOND YOU ARE RIDING AND HAVING A BLAST NEXT SECOND YOU HAVE TO REACT TO SAVE YOUR LIFE. THIS INCIDENT HAS CHANGED MY RIDING ON ICE. PLEASE BE CAREFUL. :beerchug:

I broke through the ice when I was probably 15. It's something I'll never forget. All I know is when I went through and under the water, and came back up I could not see anything. The water had froze to my helmet that fast. It was about -14f out. My first thing was to get my helmet off so I could see. After that I knew my dad had broke through in front off me and wanted to make sure he was ok. After I seen him I started trying to get up on the ice. Every time I would grab the ice would break. We weren't very far off shore so I started working my way toward shore. It didn't take very long for me to get out. After that my 2 brothers were behind us and went back to get my mom to come pick us up in the car. That wait felt like an eternity. My dad and I were like a solid block off ice. Thats one thing about snowmobiling that will always stay with me. I don't hesitate to go ice, and ride ice and open water that I know I shouldn't be doing. But whenever I am uncertain of ice it's wfo. I guess where we went in is usually open water, but since it was so cold it had frozen over. There were alot of tracks that had been across it. We weren't going fast enough to make it(probably 20-30).
