Having a great snowy day as we surpass 1000 miles for the season!
|"Let's do 1000 more!" says my happily snow covered partners at our midpoint of the day.|
|Great shot of the powder plows as you can barely see Max & Zorro because of all the|
powder they are plowing through and kicking up all around themselves!

|Down almost 2000 feet from our high point and we are now laying fresh tracks in only 2-3|
inches of fresh snow. What a difference in snow depth across 2000 feet!
|"Oh, these moose prints are very FRESH!" declare the moose inspectors.|
We never saw the moose, but our noses said these tracks were very fresh!
A mix of 12+ inch trail breaking and 2+ inch fresh tracks leading to an 8.2 mile outing with 700 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 19 MPH.
2016/2017 Season to Date: 120 days on the trails covering 1003.0 miles with 106,300 feet of elevation climbed.
1100 miles here we come. 1200 miles we certainly anticipate. 1300... ??? Hmm, had you asked me 3 weeks ago (amidst our extremely warm & dry March) I would have said no. But, it has been snowing almost every day for the last 8 or so with more in the forecast. Could we really build snowpack to get us to 1300 miles? We'll see...
