Last Ride of the Season

What a season - last ride was on April 19th to Big Tim.
Wow - don't think we've ever ridden so late in April.

If there's snow in town, there's snow up high.

Early enough that it's still frozen in the parking area.
Perfect blue bird day. Uncomplicated. Almost no stucks - just one tree well incident.
Superman snow. Could go anywhere. 


The dark speck on the hill is a sled.

Tracking out the hills.

Perfect day for a last ride. So spoiled with all the snow this season. Can hardly wait until next season.

Back Country Fun

No shortage of snow this year. Best riding conditions in a long time.
Can venture into the same area twice and it's as if we've never been there.

Saturday's ride included a bit of logging road riding, play time in the logging slashes, some lake play and a bit of ditch play.

Couples who ride together have more fun!!

Lake play 

Group photo time ....groan.

Used to play in this logging slash - trees have sure grown - the black speck in the trees is a sled

Quick rollover

Experimenting with black and white photography

Looks like the sweep's sled. STUCK...can't be - must be someone else riding it.

This is what the view is like when you finally get off the trail

What are they all doing in the ditch?

Ooops moment
Always a good day when everyone has fun. Some riders are enjoying back to back riding days. Oh, if only there were no sore muscles at the end of the day.

Weekend Ride to the "Taj"

A chilly start but can't complain when it's a bluebird day.
Hadn't been to the "Taj Mahal" in years due to logging activity so we were overdue. Hoping we could still find our way in.

Most snow in years

Like water skiing, difficult to stay dry

Doo-lightful snow

Crushing snowflakes

Grasshopper, is that you in the snow swirl?

Looks like the trail in...

"THIS is the Taj Mahal" - not exactly up to expectations!!!

Saving gas - oh, not necessary, it's an e-tec

Waiting for the "trail boss"

Minor delay on the hill
Now that the trail is set, we're hoping to get back in there again this season ....if logging roads aren't plowed. Seized the opportunity. Long day but the trail boss was happy :)

Windy Mountain NOT

WOW to the riding conditions lately. Sunny days and lots of new snow. Even when we go to the same riding area a 2nd time, you would never know that we have been there.
Same goes for Windy Mountain. Doesn't seem to matter how many trees we cut off the trail, they keep reappearing.
Postcard perfect day

Gals get to ride at the back for this ride (since we're not getting stuck!!)

Guys at the front - doing the hard work

When we see all the gear beside the trail, we know not to proceed. Can't be good!!

Had it with Windy Mountain - more great areas await.

Enough riding at the back - bring on some challenges

Guys hanging out while the gals play


Our Sweep waiting for the stragglers

She'll be coming around the mountain...
If you are planning to ride up Windy Mountain, do not take "the face trail" unless you are a very experienced rider. With the steep slope, large amounts of snow and side hilling required, you could easily find yourself in danger. And not much room for turning around. 

The rides this season just keep getting better :) Windy Mountain - you win (for now)...we will get to the top before the riding season is over.

Plan A, Plan B, No plan

Woke up expecting the ride to be cancelled due to cold temperatures. Our Prez used reverse psychology and sent us an email saying "cancel if you want" but it's supposed to warm up to -8 in the afternoon.


Hopeful that the weather forecasters are right.
We had plans to ride into the "Taj"but the Thuya Lake Road had been plowed. Okay, off we go to Blowdown Road - plowed too. Those *%#@* loggers took our snow away from that one too!!
Let's just go and find some snow.

Found lots of snow, logging roads and slashes to play in.

Enough snow to ride right over most anything

Family fun

We got in, we have to get out.

Fashionable rider - all coordinated.
Glad our enthusiastic president convinced us that we couldn't pass up on this day. Everyone had a great time and made good use of the extra daylight in the evening.

Back road riding

Another reason to join a Snowmobile Club - when you're in another area, you can contact the local club and possibly join them on a ride. That's exactly what a few Prince George club members did. Our club president quickly arranged an impromptu ride.


Saw so many moose on this ride.

Tons of powder. And this is before the BIG Cariboo snowfall.

No bottom.

Bottom of a DOO.


End of the day - only person missing is the photographer :)

Snow day

Some pictures to illustrate yesterday's ride out of Grosset Road to Cow Camp area.

Heck with plowing the driveways.

New rider learning how NOT to turn around

Thank you for all the heavenly snow.

Not deep enough

Throw me a tow rope

Skis UP

Skis DOWN

Where's my skis?

Goggle foggle kind of day

Hunka Lake aka "Trap Lake"
