I might come. Although Cat Lake area is probly groomed for snowmobiles now, at least on any trails that get any elevation. Furry creek might be good, or maybe up the Squamish Valley towards Ashalu or Elaho. Also, I saw a video of Hut from the holidays on bc4x4 in the snow wheeling video thread.,,tons of snow. I would rather go someplace besides hut though.

Ron, I went up Cat lake area last year and yes it was groomed for snow mobiles. Furry creek or ashlu might be better. Lets go furry creek. There are lots of roads around there.

Sorry guys I can't make it looks like the last time out I finally fucked up the power steering so I got manual steering at low speeds and power at higher. If I get innto tight areas I will not be able to turn around lol. Looks like its a extreme duty psc hydro kit now

Evan just bring your big boy muscles and you'll be fine

I've gotta swap the rear drive shaft out tonight as now grease is now finally coming out, besides all the flange bolts already missing/broken. Now we just need new shocks as the current ones are gone. If anybody will break something it'll be Dez as she 4x4s like she stole it haha

Today, I bought a cheap BDS shock thinking that I would brake it anyways. I was surprised that it came with a bracket that relocates it above the tie rod. It looks like I cant brake this one...

Where'd you pick that up Yusuf? Might end up getting all new shocks and SS sooner than later for Dez' cheap. Just trying to decide on where to buy and what to buy. Usually I just buy from the states though as the prices are so much cheaper.

I picked it up from NSOR in north van. I usually buy from US too but I didnt want to drive to blaine just for this one. It would cost me more with the fuel spent. BDS is half the price of bilstein.

Heading west on highway, there is a ramp after passed furry creek golf course exit. When you get on top of the ramp, you will see the fsr entrance right off the highway...

We'll have to go find some more fresh snow again. Too bad the days are so short now. Wouldn't mind goin all the way to a local lake or view point. You can plow the way again Yusuf, since your tires are best lol

Did you guys sleep in yesterday? You could've plowed the way with your new tires that you got on heep.

Tires deff made the difference in that heavy snow yesterday. Our tires held up just fine and we made it through everything, except breaking snow going up hill can't be done with our gearing and open diffs lol Lockers were required to go through the snow uphill at least. I think everybody was at 10-12psi roughly and besides Jeff needing some M/T 35s and Ron's 50% tread, we got through till we realized it didn't loop around and only have 2hrs of day light left to get home.
