How many miles do you avg. in a season?

Recommended Posts

I used to average around 3,000 miles a season when I lived in NH. Since moving to Vermont is been closer to a thousand.

I'd say around 1500-1800.  I can get over 2k sometimes.  I don't do many rides over 100 miles.  I'll hit the trail 2-3 times a week for a 40-80 mile run.

That's what most of mine are now. Back when I averaged 3000 miles there were a lot of 150-200 mile days.

Yeah, we do a quick 38 mile run a couple times on weeknights then a better run on Sat or Sun.  My sled is just not set up for long days..and to tell you the truth, my body is feeling that way too.  :wall:

Good hard short sprints is what gets my rocks off.  Kinda like sex with an unwilling olympic gymnast........as long as they are a female.

We usually do around 1K a season. The worst ride we did was last Feb doing 250kms to get to the lodge we were staying at. It was -41 with nowhere to stop and warmup. That was a weekend from hell.

4,000 miles is an average winter for me, last was 2,900 miles due to a lack of snow in December and most January.

We had a trip last season that started in Duhamel QC January 23rd and the conditions were far from good, halfway between Trois-Rives and La Tuque we ran out of snow so we broke southeast towards Quebec City only to see the news that night that much rain was coming so we started to make the run back to the truck as there was no way our route back would be rideable with any measurable rain, most of the morning was in the rain and while having lunch in Riviere Matawin it turned to snow to make a good ride into Saint-Michel-des-Saints, and in typical Quebec fashion the Ski-Dozers went out that night and mashed everything to perfection which made the the last two days of riding on nothing less than trails that rated a 10!

That was the Gaspe trip her and I did in Feb. 2014, the trip started out in -20F temps in Riviere du Loup, and then we go pinned down by a blizzard in Matane two days later.

I think I met your friends in Matane, I was looking for the Doo dealer to get my wife a heated visor and I stopped at a motel looking for directions and these east coast guys were telling me the trails were closed, anyhow we got to the Doo dealer and after we left I said let's take a 20 mile ride to a relais for lunch before going to our motel....It was fuckall for drifts, deep snow and blowing snow, we made the relais and it was closed (Monday) on the way back to Matane my wife and I got separated by trees and blowing snow and she actually got past me unbeknownst to me a 1/2 mile after we left the relais.....not good but anyhow she rode about 10 miles towards Matane before heading back to the relais.

Here is a picture of the conditions between Matane and the relais that afternoon  those are long track Doo's  being dug out thank god she didn't stuck like that when  riding  by herself.

As of late, 1000 to 1500 miles.

My old norm was 2500ish miles....but loosing the riding circle that I used to ride with stopped that, plus kids, life, etc....

around the 1500 miles a winter.  Last winter sucked though and only got a third of that on

Don't feel bad, I didn't even ride. The trails were open, but it wasn't worth it to ride circles in the small area that was decent.

I do a lot more off trail now. Used to do 3000 to 4000. More into the smiles than miles these days. Picked this up in the spring and will be lucky to do 30 miles a day.:ylsuper:

      Is there a snowmobile speed limit in your state or province? Is it enforced? 
      NH has a state wide speed limit of 45 mph. Fish and Game gives you 10 mph and wont ticket you unless you are going 56 mph or above. Here in VT the only speed limit is on state and federal land where the speed limit is 35 mph.

      The snowmobile trails around here in the NEK of VT officially open December 16th provided there is enough snow for them to open. I have ridden before Xmas 2 out of the 3 seasons I've lived here. However, the good riding doesn't usually begin until after New Years.
