Do you consider mountaineering an extreme winter sport?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I ride bikes to stay in shape for snowmobiling.
Have sleds(4), house in the nort' woods, mechanics, and tons of experience dodging trees.
Even raced a few times 50 mile cross country. On sleds, old-fast-safe-and happy.

ummm, mountaineering is a little different than just hiking and backpacking.

You traveled roped, use an ice ax, crampons, and often helmets. The alititude is usually pretty extreme, as are the temperatures. Its harder than anything I've ever done.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Ahhh...sorry for the mis understanding. But that sounds like a real rush. How do you get into it?

Butchf I need the whole snowmobile skinny from you.

Used to sled alot when I was younger looking to get back into it. I basically just want to do some touring and enjoy some scenery, although fast+jumps is good too. Here's my dilemma; I'm not looking to buy any sleds just yet so I need to find a place that has good/great trails, rents snowmobiles, and also rents a nice cabin (jacuzzi) that will allow me to bring my dogs. Doesn't sound that difficult but I had a hard time searching this out last year, actually just kinda gave up.

Oh yeah reasonable pricing/deposits are a good thing, as well as gear rental.

If anyone has any suggestions, links, #'s whatever please post or pm me some info. I could usually find 2 out of 3, but the places I really wanted to go wouldn't let me bring the dogs and if they don't go, I don't go. They're cleaner and more well behaved than most people I know.

I would start with snowconditions.com Use the links to different resorts and rentals. Eagle River is reknowned for its trail systems as well as Iron County and St. Germain areas. Depends the group size type of riding more. Some folk like the wide open riding in the UP then others like the crowded areas cause they are afraid of getting lost. I think the Days Inn allows dogs in Eagle River.. right next door to Trackside Rentals. Chamber of commerce 715-479-8575 could be the best way to find out.

Scratch,

To add to Butch's comments. Also try John Dee's website: www.johndee.com. John Dee is a weather man in the UP of Michigan...Houghton area I believe. His site offers some good info on the entire snow belt. Including places to stay and snowmobile rentals. I like the eastern part of the UP...Munising, Christmas, and Gran Marais (sp?) areas. They usually get good snow that far north...the last few years Wisconsin has been hit or miss with snow. However when conditions are right Eagle River & St. Germain offer good snowmobiling. Other services like food and lodging are excellent as well. Good luck and have fun.

Shiny side up, rubber side down.

Yeah Bug, that area has to be kick ass, because they held the winter X games there a few years back.

No worries. I actually just started this year. Everything up until this point has been to train and gain experience for a big climb next year.

If you like the cold and don't mind carrying a big pack in the snow you're more than welcome to join me on a backpacking trip or a climb.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
