Kicking up powder far back in French Gulch - wheeee!
Kicking up powder all around Max & Zorro as they hop & tow me through an untouched 2 feet
of snow. POW!
It was a cold morning, so that must have been what kept people at home as we got to French Gulch on the early side and found a layer of fresh snow all to ourselves!

There was about 1-2 inches of new snow on the well-traveled lower section of French Gulch:
Laying fresh tracks in the morning's new snow in lower French Gulch. Fun!
The 1-2 inches in lower French Gulch turned into 3-5 in mid & upper French Gulch:
Untouched snow as far as the eye can see as we lay freshies in 3-4 inches here. Wheeee!
Finally, as we transitioned out of French Gulch and started towards French Pass, it was DEEP! We skijored up one path through the trees and then came back down another path. Max & Zorro were having a great time hopping and towing me through roughly 2 feet of untouched powder. What a "powder cache"!
My trail breakers having a blast plowing through the deep snow. They love "powder plowing"!
From laying fresh tracks to breaking trail - what a powder day! 8.3 miles traveled with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 18 MPH.

2016/2017 Season to Date: 93 days on the trails covering 769.0 miles with 83,400 feet of elevation climbed.
