Yep, thank you Kerryann for getting this going, thanks to Dale for the buffet table inside the trailer for all the food (power too ) and Ron and Jeff for such a great park. The snow was incredibly deep (perfect) and a lot of the harder trails like Big Ugly would've been a winch fest. As it was it took a good half hour just to get out of the back of the parking lot and onto the trails.


edit: The warming fire was…warm
Thanks

Thanks to dale, Kerri, Ron & jeff for the event. Thanks to a great group of friends for an awesome day in the woods.

James, bummer about the spindle. .

The snow was awesome. Any deeper & we would have never gotten out of the parking lot.

Thanks to everyone involved for putting on a great event. This was my first trip to Rocks and Valleys and everyone was extremely helpful. My son took a bunch of pictures on our adventure....here are a few of them. Not sure who the owners of all these rigs are but thanks for a great day playing in the snow.

The only picture I took. I was backing up, looking for a place to turn around and slid off the trail. Wow, that snow was deep! I sunk in up to my crotch when I was hooking up the winch.
