Great snow riding at lunch yesterday. Sunny conditions and perfect snow pack for a nice ride. I was out breaking trail on the back of Colorado Hills.
That is a donut on a Pugsley although I'm not sure it shows up well. At least the scenery is pretty.
The hikers were following my line from yesterday around the "trail". There really is no trail in the snow on this side of the park as it's impossible to find.
That is a size 46 Sidi inside a thick neoprene bootie. Yes they are wide.
After work Dave and I drove up to Evergreen for a bigger snow ride challenge. We hit up Elk Meadow in the dark with darn gusty winds and 8" of snow before drifts. I think it's fair to say that Mother Nature kicked our asses. We didn't give up but it took us around 2 hours to cover ~3.5 miles before we happily refound the car and drove into Evergreen for some Mexican. Thanks for dinner and the nice walk Dave, haha :) I did learn a few snow riding techniques on the Pugs and got to slide/surf down a few fun downhills but overall we both still walked a ton of the ride. Well I've got to go air the tires back up for the ride to work and get out of here. Next week is a rest week and I think Marni and I are both ready.
