The first real ride of the year. Trails were flat and fast, and there was plenty o' snow! We didn't have conditions like this last year until mid January.

Wed A.M. Joe and I taking an early season poke through the woods. Joe is eyeing up the hill climb in the backgound, going to need a about another 3' though, before we try that one.

I came across the abandoned mine shaft 2 summers ago while atving, decided to show it to Joe, I have no idea how deep it is, but it is filled with water.

We met up with John at at the Wildlife Refuge Cabins Wed afternoon, took the Freda loop for a little warm up ride, it was flat as a pool table, and all the normal wet spots on this trail are froze solid.

Joe and John dropped into this little bowl on the power line, result? A pair of stuck RMK's.

Friday morning, last day of riding. About 4-5" of new snow I would guess.

My brother drove up Thursday night, so he could ride with us on Friday, hardcore eh? Must have something to do with having a brand new sled.http://www.johndee.com/discuss/clipart/happy.gif

We rode a bunch of untouched stuff on Friday, fan-freaking-tastic!!

3 rompin' stompin' deep snow sleds.

Joe led us down into this ravine, ok, I told him we should give it a try, LOL, anyways, I got hung up in this log. We had to get the saw out.

Joe trying to see what lies ahead, the walls on either side were getting steeper and steeper, we went another 100 yards and had to turn around, couldn't go any further.

This hill on the power line could have been a disaster. In blue is my line, in yellow is my brothers left ski mark, in red is his track line. He was completly side ways going around this, if he would have went down to the right, he would have met some very large trees. I think he pooped himself. LOl

Here I am standing down in the bottom of where he started, as you can see, the little hill drops right off, I'd say it was about a 75 degree angle.

More untouched fun
