Last year I failed to reach my cabin during the winter because the snow was so deep and powdery, but this year I had no problem……..because my friend Erik (who has a cabin near to mine) was there to plough the track to our cabins with his Swedish Military Valp. He has built an hydraulic plough attachment that fits on the front and is very effective at clearing the snow.
Erik ploughed to about 1km from our cabins and Erik’s family and I drove behind the plough
The final kilometre was not ploughed (making it impossible for others to drive there), we all climbed into the valp and drove through the snow to the cabins
There was 80cms of snow on the roof
and it was dark by the time I had finished removing snow. I was working following morning so unfortunately could not stay at the cabin.
