L to R, your humble host, friend Scott and his nephew Casey.
Just some pictures BG took this past Saturday. It was the first time we've all been out riding. There were places where the wind was blowing 40 MPH but mostly the weather was great. The snow was like riding in pure sugar. Very soft and lots of work. I was a little sore for a couple of days afterwards but no where near as sore if I hadn't been going to the gym. That really saved me.
Fortunately BG never took any pictures of the couple of times I got stuck. One was epic! Climbing a little hill with about 5 feet of powder and got kicked out of the trail, fought it back and was ready to give myself a high five and fist bump when my foot slipped off the rail while switching sides and I dumped it big time. You kind of had to be there.
Pictures didn't turn out to bad considering BG took them with her HTC Incredible. Then she posted them to her FB page from where these were taken. The 21st century is so awesome.
L to R, Casey stuck as he went to help Aunt Mary who was stuck.
This actually put both of them tied with me for being the stuck the most. That was before the hill incident. And *ahem, another time right after that. The last one really made me angry. Pure stupidity and not listening to Scott. "When in doubt, THROTTLE OUT!" It's good advice. I ended up getting stuck the most. It's not a title I relish and one I've claimed more than my fair share since I started riding. I think I need new skis on the front. Yeah, that's it. New skis will solve my problems. Sure enough.
MRM taking a break and getting ready for a snack.
