    I too hope that we've got the chance to share some time this coming April. I've yet to meet Dookie, but will use your name to provide me with street credibility when I introduce myself, and of course convey your regards.

    And quite cool how you can drive your sled right down Main Street.

    CR & Janis,
    Looks like your timing was Spot on!!! That's the best Main St has looked all Season! The snow on the trails looks Great also!
    I think the DW & myself will be back up on the weekend of the 11th for the Pink Ribbon Ride, it's for Breast Cancer, should be fun!
    Happy that you all had a Good time! The last time we were there, walked to Pancho & leftys on the end of Main, I have had better Mex food before, but we had fun with the Band & Beers!

    Yeah, we lucked out for sure, Mr.V. In fact, the day of those pics the pass was closed because of the snow and there was no getting in or out. Luckily, we were already there and had the trails almost to ourselves, as you can see by the lack of tracks on the trail. That pic of Janis on her sled was about 11am. Of the folks who were there, I ended up helping pull two of them out of the holes they buried themselves in while playing in the powder. I seriously question if they'd have gotten out if I hadn't happened along.

    always good to ride with someone and have a pack with shovel, tow rope, extra survival gear. trying to dig out a stuck sled in deep powder is never fun. You have nothing to push against trying to roll a 400 pound sled upright isn't fun.

    Even around here it's never a good idea to ride alone.

    As we like to say, "It's Not Snowmobiling unless you get Stuck!"

    We carry a Powder Jack with us at all times, and it's been well used!
