Mike Urich Cabin at Government Meadows 1/22/2013
Ray, Mike & Doug made a shakedown cruise to Greenwater 1/22/2013
Sno Park on the 70 road was the lower one. Gate was closed and the road beyond was closed to wheeled vehicles. Road beyond has been plowed all the way to the upper old sno park. It was down to ice and even bare pavement in a few places. We met a 5 yard dump truck plowing what little snow was left on our way out. Ice Scratchers were a good idea. Poor management by the state as far as I'm concerned.
Road to Twin Camps has not been groomed. It has had a few sleds on it though.
The road beyond the upper sno park was ok... but had slim snow on the sunny sides of the hill.
To show you snow conditions... we saw Elk sign in the road about a mile above the Cliff (Naches trail).
Green Pass road has not been groomed for some time but at least had some snow on it.
At Government Meadows I would say there was maybe a little over 3 feet of snow. (and to be expected) Hard packed and hard to find a spot that wasn't tracked. We put on about 40 miles.
OK trip for shakedown ride...
Patti outside of Tom's Cabin at Boulder Creek 2/24/2012
Mike Started Snowmobiling in 1967. Boy were the sleds different then.
First time I rode one was in Alaska in about 1964
They have come a long way since those days !
Patti started in 1988 and has enjoyed it ever since. Kristie and Kirk (our kids)
have been riding since they were born. The grandkids started early also.
We Snowmobile all over the Cascade Range in Washington just trail riding for fun.
Patti & I have slowed down some but the kids still ride hard.
This page was started 4/2/01 and I will dig out some more pictures later in the year.

Rotating Sled Deck for a Flat Bed Truck & removable
And for hauling sleds on a flatbed truck...
This Turntable works great if you are hauling on a flatbed truck.
Drive them on... turn the turntable around & drive them off.
It even enables you to side load.
When I want to take them off the truck, we just back it
under the hoist & lift the whole works off.Snowmobile Turntable Page
