First time I have rode this in deep snow.....bloody ace.

The wide footprint when down to 4-6psi is unreal.....better than on the beach.

It's easier and faster than my pugsley and mukluk was on deep snow......hence the moony is popular in areas where snow is common.

Looking forward to some fun and pics tomorrow if work allows.....

More snow through the night, great for fitness when everyone else isn't riding, I like to do a local ride if I can.

Luckily work is quiet today so managed a wee 10 miler.

That's my size 10 walking boot in the moonys track.
