No pics today.......
It’s been a quiet couple of days at The Sled Den….
The last 4 days the temps have been just above 0 C in the mountains….. Yep, looks like spring just around the corner…….
Why is it not here yet? Well, it’s going to be well below 0 C for the next 4 days or so. You can check the Mountainforecast……..it says -14 C for Wednesday. Then a little warmer as the days go on.
There is still tons of snow above 1000 ft……still looks like it did a week ago! The snow is now turned to salt crystals. Yep! Hero snow, my favourite....lol…..not to mention the sick elevators you can now do. It’s not quite T-shirt yet but it will be in another week or so…...
We didn’t ride today ‘cause we were waiting for sun but it never really came out…… but tomorrow is another day.
The snow sure won’t change much ‘cause it’s a little rain…. then some snow……then cement ‘till later in the week…..but below 1500 ft we will be ok.
The temps will be just above
0 C so the snow should be good. This is the week I believe we will turn into
Spring. I took a pic at sea level...this is The Sled Den yard……still has loads of
A good 2-3 foot base…...then the snow really deepens when above 1000 ft.
The trails are not being groomed…..but no traffic. Some bare spots in the towns but crazy nice once back away from the town…..it’s really good riding!
For sure the rain won’t hurt the trails…..just that much snow still….. and just a little rain!
The temps are still cool. We haven’t seen really warm temps yet. Scratchers are a must - for the higher you go, the lower the temps…..close to 0 C or below……. Could be soft in the valley and winter with ice in the mountains.
Only another month of riding……so now’s the time to come for the last big trip……
I will ride the 15th of May but that's it……… Opening Day for Bears is on that date and don’t want to bother any hunters.
Sucks but don’t want to make the Mountainrider look any worse than already seems......... Pics tomorrow..... …... Jack
