<font color="119911">Very nice pics!
I know how you feel. Once you&#39;ve been to the mountains, it changes your perspective on sledding quite a bit.</font>

Pat, We were all wearing helmets for the whole trip, all the time. Except for this once brian didn&#39;t have his on. We were just sitting there by the drift, haveing a break, then he just fires up his sled and took about three runs then came back for his helmet. Too mutch snow in the face I think. lol

Yep, wow was all I could say too after that trip, best sleding experince I&#39;ev ever had. And I wasn&#39;t even on MY sled! Brian&#39;s been to the mountains many many times, and he said he had never had this good of weather before. About 10-15c all day, with sunny skys. And we got this on our first trip ever! But it didn&#39;t come with out a price, 10 hours to drive out there. LONG drive. But then only about 6 miles of trail to the play area. Then if you want to keep going you can drive in about 20 miles. Thats where all the turboed yamahas go. To the REAL faces.

I am gonna say it again, WOW! It&#39;s a highmarker&#39;s heaven.

Yep, that it is. And these are still just the LITTLE hills. Brian said about five to ten more miles in was were the REAL faces started. We were sitting at the bottem of the biggest hill we visited that day when five turboed yamahas came in. They each did one high mark then kept going. Brian said he was surrprized they stoped at all. The hlls we were on all day were suppozedly kids toys compared to were those other guys were headed. Sure was a great day.
