Here in the Monashees we have been experiencing what is probably the worst winter on record, as far as snow goes. But even though the riding has not been great (an understatement) we have had some nice tours under true blue skies. Right now though, the skies are cloudy and we are still waiting for snow so I thought I would post another TR from earlier this month. I enjoy viewing the other trip reports, it is interesting to see the different terrain and conditions, and while I would like to post some shots of sweet lines and riding great powder, well........... another day! For now:

Image
Who has to ride in the toboggan?

Image
No decision, so try again.

Image
We're not sledders, but these wide track Skidoos are great for accessing the more remote backcountry. We'll sometimes travel 40 or 50 miles off road, but today just 12 miles.

Image
Gearing up, our destination is the snow covered summit.

Image
Kris leads the way up through a recent burn, doesn't look so great but nice to ride in.

Image
Making our way up to the pass.

Image
Sean pushed me over or...a dedicated photographer taking a picture of.....

Image
this snowlip.

Image
Taking a break befor kickstepping the last bit to the top.

Image
On the way up, a good ad for Voile.

Image
On the summit.

Image
Taking a cautious look over the edge....

Image
to the lake 1500 feet below.

Image
Weathers changing, so time to be going.

Image
Your's truly.......not powder but still fun.

Image
Can you spot the two goofs?

Image
Here's a hint!

Image
No, it's not an ad for our favourite beverage....I just can't figure out the camera.

Image
What I was after: (l to r) Kris, me, Rod, Sean, and Al enjoying our traditional end to another good day.

Split66-Sweet photos and nice sleds to boot! Can you post a picture of your board carrying device (plywood it looks like) on your snowmobiles. I have just been using cord to attach my board to my snowmachine (it works but is not pretty). Would love to see a close-up.

Hey Wyomingsplit, glad you liked the photos. I posted a separate thread about the snowboard rack on the Talk forum so you can check it out there.
