The team of many names headed west to the snowies last week... the endless pow and meadows were awesome, and the hills were phenominal!! Want to give a big thanks to our guide Joe Faycosh from High Altitude Excursions, Albany Lodge for the great hospitality, Maverick Motorsports in Laramie, and the riders from 10 High Extreme Productions!! We had a blast and will be back to ride the steep and deep of the Snowies for sure!!

Ner, that was actually some guy stuck at the top, took him a few mins but he got it out and down without the sled getting away from him. That was the only hill we didn&#39;t shoot to the top, just cause we flew out and were on rentals and didn&#39;t want to pay the 2k deductable if we rolled down...ha. I have a couple of vids, ill try to get them on here.


hoffman.. i would highly reccommend it!!
