was gonna hit yankee hill with a few of the guys, but a late start due to a late night, not being able to find my gloves and hats, and crappy roads with people that can't drive meant i would get there way late, so i decided to stay home and enjoy the snow from here!

most of the driveway is shoveled, the walks shoveled, the neighbors walk is shoveled, so it should start snowing again any time;)

Wrong! ;) It was an Awesome day for wheeling! :D

We waited around 'till 9:30 for Ige and Mike to arrive, but it ended up being just Scott, Jeff (Scott's brother) and Myself making fresh tracks. Although the morning started off cold, it turned out to be sunny and beautiful up there with lots of fresh, dry, light powder to play in. We didn't make it too far up the trails before the snow got too thick and we turned back. It's going to be interesting up there for the Snow and Pizza Run if we get a lot more snow.

Yea, we missed you guys but I understand. It was a good quick exploratory run. We only made it a little ways past the large middle parking area. The old snow that drifted up in the trees up the hill from there was a killer. We walked up a little further the check the next corner where there are normally big drifts and it looked bad. I don't see many of us making up much further after it drifts up some more. We played around the area some and called it an early day. The first 3 pictures are of me at the end point. I didn't take the time to chain up or winch further.

Indeed, we only made it a little ways up the hill past the "Poser" parking area. You guys need to get up there ASAP if you want to proceed further. In two weeks it's going to be drifted in pretty bad.

I mentioned more than once that a couple of 80's with chains would quickly plow a nice path for us all the way up and then we could take turns warming our keisters in the heated leather seats while the the lattes and cappuccinos were prepared. :hill:

If it's crusted, chains hurt you! Barefoot baby! :thumb::thumb:

I agree chains wouldn't help. It's already crusted from the previous storm. So you should have two layers of crust to contend with in 2 weeks. Good luck with that.

I'll bet you 20 bucks you cant make it to the side playground with the jump.

This is getting good. When is the bet-breaker run happening? I'll be happy to come along and act as witness. :D

I thought I would be good with my LTB's at 5 psi and no chains. Conditions were weird, however. I was losing traction and spinning on the layer below the powder without digging in much. I sure had fun making lots of attempts up the hills though. :hill:

Last year Bill ran 5#s in his GY MTR's and floated on top of everything:eek:. The snow was deep and crusty x2. Once I droped lower we were able to "float" over most of the stuff with no chains.:p:

Can't wait for this year, right pressure to start of with and the wife along side....priceless. :thumb:

The tires really make the difference. Plus the ability to keep the RPM's up to dig through.

Martin struggled quite a bit. It surprised me with those big 34" meaty trackter tires. But they were cold and stiff so he couldn't roto-till through. Plus he was lighter with his soft top.

My brother and I were surprised to see how well my MTR's did with 30k on them. I'll be getting my MT MTZ's on this week. Look forward to the 3rd.

Ok, I'll post a picture too.
