Burning Brush Piles On a Northern Trapline in -30°
We were in the north country in February with -30° C temperatures (-20° F) and heavy snow loads, plus a contract in our hands to burn hundreds of brush piles situated on our trapline. I had rounded up a crew consisting of my son, grandson and one other guy to head up there.
When we finally made it to the trapping cabin we had a nice, warm place to sleep at night and then spread out from each day. The boys got straight to work, eager to burn stuff.
Our main machine for getting around was a 2004 Skidoo (Summit model) with a custom 174″ track and large paddles. It handled the 3 to 4 foot deep snow well.
You will catch some nice scenery in this video, including some dramatic night shots as the piles are lit and burned.
