Early Season | Mountain Sledder
I’ve been out three times now with limited success, yet nothing but smiles are flowing. Each time has been substantially better then the time before, and yesterday I have to say, showed signs of potential!
I dug my first pit of the year, not by choice, but maybe we could call it convenience…I had my first ‘STUCK’ of the year! In the past I have always been quite unhappy about this, but maybe I’m getting older, or simply wiser, but getting stuck is a part of sledding and if you are getting stuck, that means there is plenty of snow!
The pit was a little disturbing, but not surprising. There was a heavy rain crust buried over three feet deep, a great
sliding surface. Although we had hard results when we tested it, the point is it is there and is reactive is something to keep in mind.
Nonetheless, we had a great day and saw limited recent activity.
I did my first link-up of downhill turns for the year, and maybe even a few donuts here and there too.
I did take three or four clips of helmet cam footage, however it will be a few days to process it for you all to check out.
Stay tuned and I’ll do my best to get it up ASAP.
