I'm ready for margaritas and t-shirts.

Pity

John smashing my skin track in ...no worries ..that would disappear 15 minutes later due to mass dumpage and a ton of wind.

We had higher hopes for this day..but due to a lack of viz and a talkative, variable snowpack...we headed for the trees.

Where's spring?

Down lower around the lake..the snow was very deep

Going home

The truck is down there in that parking lot with a hot thermos...can't wait. Great day of riding and never saw a soul. Looks like more snow for the weekend...

You are going to need some serious therapy if you have to keep suffering though such awful winter conditions. (Jealous since I have been stuck in the house cycling some stomach virus with my children...who's gonna be IT today...yak.) Here is to getting healthy just in time for the snow level to drop to 1000' for another weekend! Way to track it up.

(noticing that you did not pinpoint any location...)

We haven't had significant snow in almost two months here.

Very jealous.

I guess the Cali guys know what direction to drive when we run out of corn. Which may be very soon. I'll send you a margarita for every foot of powder you send us.

Not sure where your local was but after a cold, healthy storm our monashees got pounded pretty good this past weekend! A nice 420 session in the interior of BC.

Snow ussually starts piling up in Oct and we're out definitely getting some good shredding in up high by early November. Its ussually warming up a bit more by this time in BC but when I lived in AB April / May was prime time in the Rockies.
Its been a pretty cold spring here in the interior (BC) this season. Shredding the lower elev. trails on the bike during the week and deep pow up high on the weekends.
