The day started out as a work party, clearing the alders from one of our snowmobile trail up the Bombi. Had a good turnout, 7 quads and 9 people, so it went quickly and we had lots of time to follow the trail up to the ridge on the quads. Pretty sweet trail, and old logging road partly deactivated which climbs up to the trees to an old mining trail leading to the ridge. Lots of sidehilling, rocks, logs and a bit of water to play in before hitting the snow up top.



Part of the old logging road and the alders. 3 chainsaws and a brushsaw made quick work of the couple of km we had to brush out.

And had to bail into the water to keep the quad from flipping in also! :happy0045:

Water was up to his knees here, and yes that is ice in the water, broken up from the group earlier, and about 2-3" thick! :D

This was just the start of the rincon having a bad day. The 27" tires weren't helping much due to an open front diff
