Any one have any comments. I rode it Sat 11/30 and it seems to handle o.k. on hard pack but I'm not used to deep snow and it didn't seem to turn well. I'm not accostomed to the narrow ski stance either.

Everyone I know that has one has nothing but great reviews, no probs with it. You gotta remember it's not a trail sled, and will turn fine in the deep stuff. After you get acustomed to the ski stance it will be easier for you to handle on the trail.......good luck!
