The holiday rush is slowing down a bit, but the snow isn’t! We have a decent first layer of snow on the mountains. Grooming resumes this week. Maintenance is a priority because of the traffic from our guided trips on our trails and now we have a little time to do it. Pat is fine tuning the groomer and is excited to see how it works. There are always trails to pack, trips to run and grooming to be done. We are hoping to pack a few more trails in the coming days as new snow will provide adequate cover to do so. As I write this, the snow is coming down…let the excitement build. As the tracks get covered with powder, we get to cut our own lines, once again…twist our arm! We have been riding in the Winds, Gros Ventre and the Wyoming ranges; they all have enough snow for both the backcountry and trail rider to explore and enjoy.
For the backcountry rider…new snow creates new terrain, but increases the chance for a slide…so be careful out there. Luckily for us, all of our rides are in areas that don’t slide…so you might get into snow that gets you stuck for a minute, but nothing worse. Tired of crowds? What a great reason to come out and ride this new wave of snowfall with us!
