and what a day it was! not many pics as I was too busy riding. There was 2-3 ft of fresh powder up at Yanks Peak and it was a blast. Picked up an 05 RMK900 in the summer and this was the first time I got out on it. I am really pleased with it and looking forward to an awesome year. Hooked up with a great group of new riding buddies.

just a couple pics while stopped on the trail out.

Nice! How much snow do you figure in total is on the ground? We're still hurtin here in the Kootenays. Some places are still 2-3' max, we were digging down to grass and dirt playing on the southern crossing (gasline) yesterday.

we checked with the avalanche probe in one spot (where 3 of our 4 sleds were stuck - LOL!) and it was 6-7 ft deep. This was down a slope so prob a bit deeper than most areas. One particularly nasty stuck was ...ahem...in some trees and there we sunk deep because of the wells around the trees and never found bottom. This was my first time up this year and from what I heard there was plenty of snow before, and then a 2-3 ft dump of powder a couple days before I went up.
