    I did my first snow ride today (pics)

    But I don't think that I got the full expiriance as it was about 60 degrees outside. The down side was that the trail was mostly icey mud, I think I would have preferred freezing temps.
    1)My dog enjoying the snow and 2) the sunshine
    3)My trail up
    4)My dog and myself back at the trailhead

    I went on a similar melting ride yesterday, except I had to cross a creek. Needless to say, donb't try crossing a 2-foot creek un 50 degree weather

    It was too warm to snow ride

    To ride in the woods in the snow the temp needs to be around 20. With the snow soft and slushy your better off snowshoeing to pack the trails. Then when they freeze over they are great for riding. Check out our website for lots of winter riding and snowshoeing pictures and videos.

    I didn't really know I was going on a snow ride, it's pretty much melted everywhere else. We've had three or four fairly warm days in a row, so I just expected a little mud. I was wrong.
