    That was great. Are you running studs?

    Wow, though I can not imagine it is true, and perhaps it is your superb skill, but it does look easier in the snow.
    Is that possible?

    yep

    for a slow line I do find it easier in the snow - it fills in a lot of the holes.

    Yep--waaaaaay easier in the snow. Heck--I could probably even ride it now.

    But I doubt I could make it all the way out to Horsethief to begin with. I don't have the big $ sponsorship that Landon does--he got heli-dropped at the top then had a hot toddy waiting at the bottom.

    Cool! Looks way easier with that firm snow. It's a disappointment to see you guys with so much white stuff still on the ground. I want it to dry out please. Snow up high for the skiing and rafting - dry out there for the riding.

    Easy?

    Here's the link to my failed first attempt. It is for sure easier knowing that most of the rocks I usually land on were covered with snow.

    Not enough mo' to even make it to, much less on the wall rides. And the last steep roller is extra exciting with snow on it *and* your tires.


    If a few more bikes make it down there it could get good and rideable quick.

    Deflowering the long one....

    Looks like one of us is going to have to take the innocence of "The Ribbon." As of Sunday none had dared. Crust surfing tonight? It will be good training for when we attempt a first descent of Everest. Need a shuttle in my heli? (I think i'm serious, call me if this sounds like an awful idea!)

    Hmmm...

    I need to see how many batteries I have for my lights!

    Last time I deflowered the Ribbon was 'bout a year ago. And it was great--right up until it wasn't. Then it was more like, "I think it's over there, yeah *that* juniper looks familiar...".

    But that was in daylight. Gonna be real tough to find at night. Doesn't mean I'm saying no, except to the heli ride.
