SATURDAY, APRIL 2Oth
SLED DEN UPDATE

Went for a little ride today…….

The sun was trying to come out when I left…..but when I got up into the mountains, as usual, it wasn’t the same as at the Sled Den.

The clouds were in and there were snow squalls wandering around the area I was in….which happened to be AREA X….! No real amount fell but none the less, at least it wasn’t rain……



......according to my avy pole, depth is 6 ft 10 inches....this is 50 yards from trees where my buddy stepped off his sled...... ....and didn't hit bottom....!!




Looks like the snow went down a foot. This was just the pow that was on top. The snow at the top of the peaks (3400 ft) was developing a crust when I left around 4 pm…..

The weather temp is going to be below freezing for the next 2 days. Then it looks like it’s going to be + 2 C to + 4 C during the day and then below 0 C at night….This will just make it last that much longer!!!

As I said, the snow went down, it didn’t melt. I still see the tracks in the snow from when I was there 3 days ago.

The streams are flowing but not much. As you descend, the flow gets stronger – but as I’ve been saying, it’s spring in the valleys. The snow will be gone in 2 weeks at the Sled Den. Then we can enjoy a fire at night and maybe a few beers after the day’s ride!

Here’s a few of my sled...lol...wish I had a remote control sled...lol..You can see the snow squalls and a variety of views the weather produced for me…. I must be getting ‘old’…...I see beauty in the mountains…...lol….not just LINES….lol…. But today, Mother Nature created some beautiful scenery for me to enjoy....

We are riding!!!!!
