We've never had to drift-bust or break trail to get back to the cabin as we did this year. We had to shake the heavy weight of the snow off quite a few small trees just to make it down the trail.
Some of the drifts along the trail on the lakeshore were so big that Ron had to remove the sled we were pulling with all our gear and had me and Lexie get off the snowmobile just so he could break the trail ahead of us and actually make it through. In case you're wondering, Lexie rides on my lap wrapped in a blanket to get to the cabin. Try balancing yourself and a 55lb dog on a rocking snowmobile with no back rest on a sled barely made for two people for 30-45 minutes straight. Now that's a shoulder and ab/core workout if I ever had one.
