    Anyone hoping and praying for that much snow is on crack. Your silly plow trucks wouldn't even pull out of the driveway with 18' unless you have 20' blowers attached to them or some serious commercial snow removal equipment like a CAT 994F [a little overkill :) ]. Even then it would take forever to move and stack the snow with a wheel loader.

    Love snow, got 5 sleds myself. But you ain't sleddin' in 18' of snow no way no how. You ain't even sleddin' in 8' of snow! Unless it comes in parts and each time the trail is groomed and packed.

    well of course, they didnt get 18' in one storm. total snow since november! it just means that the snow would be around longer for more sleddin time.Thumbs Up
