Nothing like rolling dual snow angels in fresh powder to cool off - aaahhh....
Rub a dub dub, rolling synchronized snow angels at our high point in French Gulch today.

It was a beautiful day on the trails around Sally Barber Mine and in French Gulch. A perfect day to uncork the engine and fly around the terrain...
Zoom - synchronized airborne tuck as we fly along near Sally Barber Mine.

A nice video counterpart to the previous photo... A great day for endless running & gliding along the trails - wheeee!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Slightly narrower trail in the lesser used French Gulch - but still zoom, zoom, zoom:
Nice form as we maintain a pretty good speed even though the set trail is very narrow.

Of course, since it was French Gulch (aka "Moose Gulch"), the outing always contains some sort of moose seeking by my partners. Today's 'moosing' was pausing off the trail to inspect the trees across the gulch. Clearly something (or some scent) caught Max & Zorro's attention; I did not see (or smell :-) anything...
"Beep beep beep - our 'moose radar' says right across the gulch is Moose Gold!" say the
intense moosing pair.

We even got in a little trail breaking fun far back in French Gulch:
At our turnaround point in French Gulch - realigning ourselves to ride back in the trail we
just carved in the deep, untouched snow.
"Great day!" expresses happy Max.
"Whew - trail breaking workout fun!" says little Zorro taking a quick break before our restart.

A fun day riding up & over Sally Barber Mine and out & back in French Gulch: 9.2 miles with 850 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 22 MPH.

2014/2015 Season to Date: 74 days on the trails covering 638.0 miles with 67,900 feet of elevation climbed.
