Tuesday Freshies

Temperature around 10 degrees + 2-5 inches of fresh snow + light to moderate snow falling + a slight breeze = a Siberian Perfect Day on the trails.
Cruising along in 4-5 inches of fresh snow far back in French Gulch.
Nobody but us Siberians out on the trails today!

We had the "tuesday freshies" all to ourselves today as we were laying fresh tracks in 2-5 inches for almost the entire outing - wheeee!

Cresting over Sally Barber Mine with about 2 inches of fresh snow to ourselves.
Everywhere we went was the same thing - laying fresh tracks all over the trails!
French Gulch was untouched with increasingly deeper snow the further up we went.

A fun video clip of us topping 18 MPH laying fresh tracks along the trail. Excuse Zorro's minor blip about 20 seconds into the clip... This was clearly a lingering leftover from yesterday's visit from Planet Z; but it was the only blip of the entire day - phew, the aliens are gone :-)
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

A day of fresh tracks covering 8.4 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2013/2014 Season to Date: 110 days on the trails covering 946.5 miles with 110,350 feet of elevation climbed.
