Who's waiting to ride in the snow!

Since we just got our Teryx in June, we have not ridden in snow. I am anxious to go for a snow ride! Anyone else looking forward to a snow ride?

Our first snow of the season is due tomorrow. How many inches of snow do ya think a stock Teryx will manage driving on relatively flat, dirt road terrain?

We ride in the snow. It is fun but be prepared to get stuck lots. They go through a fair amount if it is the fluffy powder with solid ground but once it gets crusty or slushy you get high centered a lot and you find the 11" ground clearance to hinder you.

We had a bunch and it drifted big but then we warmed up and now it is raining so it will make it ice soon.

Wish the teryx had a 3rd high gear that would allow you to do 70mph so you could put tracks on and have a decent top end. Been dreaming of a tracked t4 for awhile but cant limit my top speed to like under 30mph.

Iím ready!! But here in central NC we are lucky if we get 1 or 2 good snows a year. We sometimes get to ride in it when we go to West Virginia if we time it right.

Last night we finally got enough snow to get out and go for a snow ride on our Teryx! What a gorgeous day it was with broken sun & snow showers all day long!

The Teryx glided along over virgin snow on the backroads with ease! The snow was never deeper than about 5" and just the right depth to get a little sideways once in a while but little fear of getting stuck!

With the new EMP windshield blocking the cold air, and the heat from the engine, the cab was nice and warm.

Enjoy the pics.


On top of a butte about 12-miles from my house.


The small town of LaPine Oregon is way off in the background. LaPine is the closest town to my rural home.



The large reservoir in the background holds the largest wild Redband Rainbows in Central Oregon!



Oregon's upper Deschutes River.

Rocks, what elevation are you guys at? We live at 4300' and ride up to about 5500' from the house.

We are not predicted to get a lot of snow this Winter..., but who knows for sure?

I used my blower for 3" last week. But just on the driveway, not the access road to the house.

Hey Barefoot, can you wheel in 15" of snow?

We should have another 3"-8" this week. I'm hoping for 5" to go with the 3" we still have. That should be about as much as I expect the stock Teryx will get around in without difficulty???

He will do a lot better than we will with our stock bighorns.
