Six of us went for a great ride on Sunday. Started near Nancy Greene lake, on the other side of the highway. Followed the cat skiing operations trail since they are closed now. Snow is setting up pretty good, more like spring conditions, should have left the hood at home! Rode a couple of ridges up to 7000' and could see for miles under sunny skies! I've got a few vids, one of a guy on his 1 month old 800 Rev almost losing it at the top of a very steep/high highmark! And a few others of him jumping the road! [36] Will post them when they finish loading to the Google site.

Lots of cutblocks to play in, could go just about anywhere you pointed.

I always look forward to your posts!!!! keep it up!

Thanks! Thought I'd make those who love the snow jealous, while making those who hate it glad to not live here!



John, still about 8-10' where we were on Sunday. Places like the Norns up Pass creek which is in a snow-belt still have anywhere between 8 and 14' in places! Should be an awesome spring-early summer sledding season here for sure, just as long as I don't wreck the sled before then! Gotta design a brake that works on hard pack snow! :D
