    Default Togwotee Pass early March 2010

    Here’s our early March 2010 trip to Togwotee Mountain Pass! Went out with my brother Bill and our two friends Brian and Matt. Stayed at Togwotee Mountain Lodge. We were guided by both Brent and Carter, both of which I’d recommend highly. A special thanks to Carter for your expert teaching from our whole group of four flatlanders! We also had a chance to meet and ride with JD.com rider Pat (Firecatguy) and his friends Robbie and Red, awesome guys to hang out with and excellent riders as well. All in all we didn’t have any major mishaps or issues on the trip, but had plenty of learning opportunities and stucks! Even with lower than normal snow conditions, we still found plenty of play areas that were untouched, bottomless-deep and ready to be tore the ever living snot out of! The carving, the sidehilling, the climbs and the drops were breathtaking for this WI boy. We will definitely return, just wish I could this April…

    On a side note, when you want more pictures of the action, find a spot on your person or sled that’ll afford you faster access to your camera…der. I didn’t and hence many of the shots here are only from stuck stops and such. Oh and I have got to get a POV camera for next time…. see Pat and Robbie’s helmet cams... very sweet.

    Morning of our arrival, just out of Dubois, WY


    First stuck, lucky Brian!... the willow fields were bottomless holes at times


    Carter showing us how it's done...


    Break time...


    This pic doesn't do justice to steepness of this hill



    Pat in a bottomless spot.


    Bill loving life...


    On top of a good hill climb...


    Brian and Matt hanging out.


    Matt after helping w/ my stuck.


    A climb up a fun "little" hill w/ a yard sale halfway up... again pic doesn't do the steep justice.


    Our favorite hillclimb with our highmarks to boot!


    Bill on another highmark...


    That hill was another big one.

    Thanks for posting those great pics Paul. Good to see that you and Bill and the rest of your gang had some great riding conditions. You're right about how pictures can never seem to do justice in showing just how steep some of those hills can be.

    We'll have to stay in touch and hopefully Chuck and I can make it up to Mohawk again the same weekend as your group again next winter. I'm sure that he'd like to hear about your Tog experience. Who knows, maybe he'll share some more of his stories with us.

    Do you have any more pictures to post, and care to elaborate any further on the "yard sale" that you mentioned in the one pic?

    Thanks everyone! Boomer, yeah the yard sale, we had two young guys (Luke and Ryan?) from Chi-town riding with us on our last day and we had a bit of a challange with 'em on that shute... damn near rolled two rentals "in a bad way". We have tons more pics!
    fireman35, We got 3" @ 9600 ft. one day which was close to a 7-10" up higher. I think we got one more small snow fall as well... But not any huge dumpings. OH well, theres next year!

    Very nice Paul.

    How did the sled perform? Did you get it dialed in right?
