Yesterday we had stuckfest 2011. It was pretty fun. We were just pointing it up stuff we couldn't make and hoping for the best. Gerbil needed the saw, and Baller had some tree issues too.
Today we rode down in the flats and carved up tons of untracked powder. After experiencing some poor visibility yesterday, we decided to keep it lowkey and hit the little meadows down here close to home. There's plenty of snow in the forecast, so it should get even better as the week goes on.
Here's a video for Zeezlebub and other video fans. Internet is too slow here to really upload much video.
well thats a start RUBI....i proud o you....but 12 seconds is less than a taste dude....give us some more.....now thats more like a SLEDNUTZ SITE....pics and vids instead or whinning and whimpering all da time....NICE RUBI......hopefully the others will take notes
We got a place up in IP too. That's the greatest snow i've been on. but i'm not one to talk about that. If you go a bit south from IP Villiage the fields by the Snake River and Osbourne Bridge is some great powder. There area some great spots to go Water skippin out there too. But be careful i sunk my 600 two years ago and just about lost the sled. But a dump on the side and the purple beast was back within a few pulls of the rope.
Sawtelle is sketchy stuff. I've stayed away from the steep, and go for the deep. We had a buddy die in a avalanche running up Sawtelle years ago. He was the guy to get me my first sled. 97 Kitty Cat. He was a great friend and rider.
Ride safe and have fun.
A good trail ride is going down to Mesa Falls. That's south of IP Village, and just before Last Chance. It's a quicky going from the highway, but the Falls at the end are pretty cool. Another place you could go is Bishops Mountain trail. When it's groomed, you have a couple miles of straight shot that you can really see what your sled can do. The 600 got going 90 during Christmas Break.
Of course you could ride up at IP all the time like me, but i dunno. Just throwin some stuff out there. Great snow and plenty of trails.
We were planning on riding down to Mesa Falls. It didn't happen. I'm going to ride up to Mesa Falls and Cave Falls from Ashton in March. Probably best to save the scenery/trail rides for a day when there isn't fresh offtrail snow. We only had one day when the snow wasn't fresh and powdery because of an ice crust on top. We also only had one day that wasn't cloudy, but I guess all that fresh snow doesn't fall out of a sunny sky.
Baller pursues his tree fetish. If your chainsaw is dull, just use your Edge!
Dear Rubi, are you old enough to adopt me? If you are creative enough, I would only need a decent excuse to leave work. I can pay for any expenses I incur. In one month's time (provided my car proves to be just as good of a hauler as Gerbil's butt dart), I can afford a cheap mountain sled.
