Sleds are pretty much getting passe up here now considering how short the actual season is for them.Yup I bought a new house on the lake. The very first thing I moved in to the new lake house was my ice fishing gear. Always concerned about taking the ATV out on the ice without doing tire research first. The biggest problem is geting on the ice. The snow at the shoreline will be soft. We usually use the boat ramp for access. Have a new 2023 sled on order but may have to cancel.
Unless you really need to go fast and/or use trail systems to get to where you need to go that exempt ATVs from using them - save 12 or more thousand $$'s and buy a set of Camso ATV tracks and with the floatation and low ground pressure that track systems provide - take your ATV places where sleds can only dream of accessing - while making it truly a year-round vehicle.
I have a set and my son who loves sleds tried them out couldn't believe the places he could go with them on my bike, where he said he would never dare try and take a regular sled!
He is now buying his own set to fit up to his 850 as I write this.
Many up here in Canada have figured it out and have cancelled sled orders due to over 12 month waiting lists (or more) and have tried and gone to track systems to make ATVing a seasonal-use thing of the past.
Look into them - you may be happy you did!
