Deadwood SD?

Recommended Posts

Anyone here taken a sled trip to Deadwood SD? Just wondering if it's worth the trip? Can you ride sleds in-town? Do they usually have decent snow?

thanks for any advice!

If your going to drive 8 hours you might as well drive 4 more hours for the best snowmobile ride of your life big horn mountains.

They get snow there in deadwood but you have to tailer to the hills where the snow is. If you hit it at the right time like fishing... luck.... it can have lots of snow.

I don't live to awful far from Deadwood. Far as I know the town is off limits for sleds but, I can check if ya like. There is some snow there right now but, lotta out of staters trailer thier sleds here later in the year or after the holidays because of hunting. By the way.....deadwood slots are tighter then the top olive in a jar.

LOL. we'll probably look towards going to the Northern WI or the UP instead. It's a long drive only to trailer them daily.

I have been out there about 6 times riding, we stay at spearfish canyon lodge, right on trail system, drive to your door of lodge, Trail system is great lots of pit stops good off trail riding, not as steep as the stuff further west, we also go to bighorns, both are great places to ride

We used to ride the hills all the time until we started going to togwotee. I've ridden the bighorns too but I'm not at all impressed by riding there. Togwotee is far and away the best. Big Horns a distant second and black Hills third. The only thing that the Hills has over the others is a lot of fun to be had in Deadwood. Hard to beat playing single deck blackjack in the Number 10 saloon and I'm not even a gambler.

44-48 inches I heard this morning. That's MONSTER snow for out there this early in the year. The reason we quit going there is they weren't getting that much snow anymore. Could be weather patterns have changed a little again, or this could just be a fluke. Won't know until January when they should have a pile of snow if this keeps up, or it will be about gone again if this doesn't.

We always left the sleds at Trailshead and drove down to Lead/Deadwood to sleep.

Nick do you visit every forum? If I see you in the women's or bass we may have to cut tie's!

My dad take's a couple trips to the deadwood/lead area every spring and he love's it. He has been to the big horns and the u.p. and still enjoys the Black hills the most. He is 60 so he enjoys a little slower pace though!

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
