|Breaking trail in roughly 2 feet of fresh powder! Pow!|

down the middle!
Skijoring the unplowed road is the first photo above. I was thinking, "So deep, we'll be lucky if we traverse 2 miles in this!" Then, after about 15 minutes of breaking trail, a car came buzzing down the road. Clearly this car had gone into French Gulch before the overnight dump of 2 feet. I was amazed this little car was actually making it down the road. I think "downhill" coupled with very soft & fluffy snow is how it was able to make it...
|"Wow, look at him blazing through 2 feet of snow!" we all said.|
Only time for a short run; but the car allowed us to actually accrue more miles than anticipated for a short outing: 5.7 miles traveled with 400 feet of elevation and a top speed of 20 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 35 days on the trails covering 260.7 miles with 26,750 feet of elevation climbed.
