Second ride of the track preparation team. 2 heavy snowfalls for the last week changed the quantity of snow immensely. Photos of the Rog lake, the Chaika lake and others. The first draft of the track is ready.


The first ride of the track preparation team along the track. State Inspection of Small Vessels for the Federal Resque Service has only given a permission to prepare track including waterbodies using snowmobiles only. The team spent 3 hours to ride 25 km lap. 1 snowmobile broke and was repaired during the ride. Depth of snow was 35-50 centimeters. The snowmobiles got stuck in several places and the team had to hew stubs. To get some energy a lunch outside was arranged.
