Getting deeper

 Snowy Range 11-30-16.  Super deep in very localized areas,  super thin in others.  Rocks throughout.  Tip toe around, or get destroyed.  Got lucky not breaking anything, so ended up being a great day.  Another 2-3ft and it will be on.  The base isnt there, but the snow is the consistency to be a great base setup with not too much compaction.  Good day riding with Tom Kussard from Sledsmoke



 

 
 
 

Early Season POW Grand Mesa

The good stuff....

Snowies 11/25/16. Some pockets of joy

A Few deep pockets of pow out there, had some fun.  Amazing what 500ft in elevation can give you.  1st real day testing out the Silber turbo on the axys.  Really fun.  Still has more lag down low than a stock 15 m8, but that has to be expected.  Still the most responsive turbo setup Ive ever ridden. Also tested out the new redesigned barcode 360 front end on Jason Tamlyn's m8000.  Works great.  Better than Skinz front end, which I have a full season on.  Dont expect to go out and find the snow in these pics.  It took some work. It's still really only road ride territory out there.  Just happy to be back on the snow!!!


 

Never to late... finally, our season begins..

1st Ride of the season in Northern Colorado

Got out with Tom Kussard super early this AM.  Just enough snow fell to get a road ride in.  Finally got a chance to test out the new Silber turbo on my Axys.  Thing is so sweet.  Almost zero lag.  Unlike any turbo sled I've ever ridden.  I'm now an addict.  Won't be enough snow though until it snows again.   Just glad we finally got some snow!
 
 

Colorado snow update 11/7/16

Worst start I've ever witnessed in the past 12 years I've been sledding.  Usually get a road ride in by the 1st week of Nov at the latest.  High pressure over Colorado is keeping the temps high and dry.  Won't see a change in the weather pattern until about the 17th.  At this rate a road ride on T-giving is going to be a stretch.  Has been tough to stay positive, especially when staring at the new silber turbo setup on the Axys.
