This is no April Fool’s…..
Thank you Mother Nature for the new snow in the mountains tonight..!!!
We rode with scratchers till we got to 1800 feet. There we found a thin crust on a powder base.
The powder was only 10 inches…..but when you hit the gas, the sled sunk into the set up pow.
Temps are going down now…So we will have this new snow and the conditions will turn winter again…WHOOHOOO!
There is also snow for Friday this week… at this time of year we usually get wet snow or rain down at sea level at the Sled Den… but in the mountains it’s usually snow ‘till the middle of the month.
This is why we ride high ‘till May.
Guess everyone is cutting lawns or something…..no one around here, though. Rode for 4 days and saw 2 groups of sleds - one group with 3 and the other with 5.
The trails have been groomed but don't see much in the way of sleds .Still more than a 2 foot base on the trails at sea level. For sure it’s 2 more weeks down at the Sled Den. Up high it’s for sure May…..
Rode with some locals today….Just a relaxing day in the backcountry today...Jack
