    Indy, for you, Jennifer has an outhouse available. It's fairly roomy, and no extra charge for the smells! lol!

    Snow is getting deep up here! We are probably 1 to 2 feet more on the ground than this time last year! Off trail is super deep, and a great base down with the warm temps (but not warm enough for ice).

    Too bad I am on the slope for the ride dates.
    One of these years me and my wife will have to visit you up there Claude.

    Think I'm gonna go this year! How much for a room with two beds or bunk beds? Sell gas there as I won't be able to bring my own?

    Oh, forgot the gas! We have gas and it's $7.00 a gallon. It's 87. If anyone can bring their own, they are sure welcome to!

    It's gonna be awesome!

    Hey Claude, what do think about a bonfire Sat night? Smores for the varmints and maybe cigars for the menfolk.
    Hold a little aurora photography clinic.

    Sounds great Erik! I already have several brush piles to light off, so all it takes is a match! You'll have to bring the cigars! I'm fresh out of non-cubans! lol. No problem on the Aurora clinic.

    We have a room or two left! Call if your still looking at getting one!

    Going to be a great ride!

    Erik and Claude please post a bunch of pictures, since I can not make it this year, but lookout for next year. The new hips are doing great and will be good to go. Walking 2 miles a day, last hip was 10days ago, but can not sit on snow machine for that long ride. Smoke a cigar for me, stay safe and have fun. Dan

    Default What a blast! Riding was excellent, company was even better!

    Well, most folks made there way back to civilization today, but wow, did we have a great time! We had the usual suspects plus some new folks! Everyone agreed that we missed having Dan out here this year, but we'll see him next year! A couple of pics to get started, and I'm sure we'll get folks to post some more! I don't have the riding pic's up yet. There hopefully will be a great video of Jeff's incredible riding ability!

    Also, we had a late cancellation of a group for next weekend, so if you couldn't get in this weekend, we are wide open next weekend!

    Default UHMW Races!

    Kids and adults had a great time riding the UHMW's down the half pipe! It was insane. Found they could cruise down at 24mph! Some pic's from "The Lookout"!
