Things are still active down at the Sled Den…..
Half the group showed up a day early....lol..Why?...well for the 12-14 inches we got last night!
Yep, we rode in a hard snow all day. The snow was more than 18 inches when we left at 4.30 pm…...What a treat!
The 2 guys were getting worried when we were at 1800 and it still was only 2-3 inches.
Then ….when we hit 2000 we noticed the snow doubled.
Then…. another 500 up and its pow pow.…whoohoo!!!
We rode up at 2800 - 3500….The snow fell so hard, sometimes we had to ride the trees….Just couldn’t see where we were or even where we were going….lol.....
Because of the weather we had to come down to the trees…..Just didn’t want to get lost….Once the clouds move in and you lose your direction, it’s GPS or you’re lost! We rode the trees for the rest of the day.
.....this is my 8 foot avalanche probe.....in 9 feet of snow.....
I am so glad we got this snow!! My new friends got a chance to see that it really does snow here in April…..
Shall post more pics of our pow pow ride tomorrow….It was snowing like crazy when we left...Who knows how much will fall tonight….. Whoohoo!!
By the way, trails were groomed again……. Don’t know why!….Jack
As usual, more pics on the Gallery page!
