Cantwell or paxson

#1 Post by Jlo84truck » Fri Jan 23, 2015 12:32 pm

Hey does anyone want to go moutian riding one of these weekends? I got a moutian sled and a two place trailer and I want to go riding. I can also put a sled in my truck. I can't go this weekend, but next weekend I could.

Paxson got all the snow. The storm went right over it. Not much in Cantwell.

Drove through Cantwell area Saturday afternoon, looked like at least 6-8 inches of new stuff. The wind was kicking it around north of the igloo, trucks and trailers parked at every pullout.

Great snow at summit today. The powder was everywhere. Nothing was wind blown. It was nice not having to hunt for snow and we just enjoyed ourselves everywhere we went. It was 12"-24" on top a nice base. We played around and behind the Tit. Haven't seen snow that good in two years. We started at the monument, rode up towards the Arctic Man course and back to to Tit. Got off the snow machine and sank down from my knees to my waist.

Awesome pics...sounds like the powder conditions there might even support my 500.
