Powder Fun

It was a day of "late March powder fun" on the trails at Swan Valley Recreation Area.
Kicking up powder as we sprint along an untouched side trail.

We spent about 1/2 the day on "untouched side trails" enjoying 3-8 inches of fresh powder all to ourselves. We spent the other 1/2 the day on snowmobile tracks recently laid in the day's fresh powder. Late March powder is always fun, as the video shows below:

Max & Zorro were quite impressed with the day's conditions...
"Yes - I am having a GREAT time!" says happy Max at one of our turnaround points.
"Me too - can you see me?!?" agrees happy Zorro struggling to peek over tall Max to express
his approval.
"Right, left or straight? We want to do it all!" state the happy brothers as we pause at a
junction in the trail to decide which snowmobile track to follow.

Max knows what to do with fresh powder...

A powder day in late March covering 9.7 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 117 days on the trails covering 1010.2 miles with 117,200 feet of elevation climbed.
