I love to ride in snow (couple pics)

Today was AWESOME!!!! I love all of this snow, no way I was gonna stay inside. Due to the fact many of the trails by Golden are a lot of uphill I thought I should try closer to home. I ended up in Castle Rock at Memmen Ridge. Man it was a blast, some drifts were at least half wheel deep and they were fun to blast through. Didn't get many pics because I was having too much fun!

Getting Started


On trail





The End (yeah it got dark, I was out there longer than I thought searching for the actual trail at times)

Have you tried this crazy new invention the kids are calling "skis"?

Nice pics!

I'm jealous, it's made a couple attempts at snow over here, but it usually turns to just plain old awful cold rain in a day or so.
