Welcome to the list. I’m not going to try to answer the snow/ice questions,
since I wimped out years ago after falling on some hidden ice, but you should
get some comments from the Minnesotans on the list. Also, there was some
discussion of the topic about a year ago on the list, which you should find in
last year’s archive on the home page.

Unfortunatly you’ll have to mail order this one, from the Unicycling Society of
America, at P.O. Box 40534, Redford, MI 48240. It will cost $16, but I don’t
know if you have to be a member to order.
