    BZZZZZZT!!! Wrong! Doesn't count. First there needs to be snow. Secondly, your tires need to be in it!

    Nice pictures, however.

    Yes it is. Ski resorts do hold winter downhill races in the winter and we always have the Iditasport.

    Yep, that's the one! Trail 13 goes north and south from the pass. We took the trail north as far as Scar mountain, about 11 miles.

    Thanks N7,

    Over the weekend we got over 20 cm's and today another 5-10cm's. The roads were really slick in the evening. Good thing I have Nokians front and back. I finally managed to get a digital camera. I'll be taking some photos of some single track near my house on the weekend.

    Who wants to go down a hill in a tobogan when a bike goes downhill faster :-)

    It's never to early for that. Now where is our snow?

    Although slightly cool temps have been effecting our Saturday night rides here... You'd think the better riders would be the ones that come out all winter, but it actually seems to be the opposite...

    Ha! My neighbor went on the Sat ride a couple weeks ago. And biffed early in the evening. I think he said he stuck it out the whole night though - should've been on a single speed karate monkey.
