Any new word on the snow conditionns? I called out to snowy mountain lodge lastnight and the guy said they had a 4-6 foot base? Any truth to this? Possibly heading out the 25 if there is good snow.

There has been some snow the last couple days and major wind out in the plains. We are watching the lastest storms coming from the NW that will hopefully show up this weekend. Keystone has had 84" so far this year, Butttttttttttt under the conditions, I would expect 30% or less is still on the level ground. I haven't been up the hill yet but 4-6 foot base sounds awful optimistic. Maybe drifts in that range but not on the level or on the bare top. Keep a look out towards next week for hopefully a better, healthier report.

Not the best of years yet.

I talked to the Albany Lodge today. They said good snow in the area but many riders are complaining about the grooming. New groomers don't have a clue I guess?

Just got back this morning from snowy mountain lodge. amazing powder, i've never riden in powder that deep in my life. When we were loading up monday night we saw the groomer take off and start grooming. Still some hidden rocks under the powder, one of the sleds got a ski tore off. Other than that it was a great trip, awsome powder, and the lodge was excellent would recommend to anyone.

Don't know what the range snow totals are but Laramie got about 12-14" out of the recent storm and Saratoga about 30". So the Snowy Range total should be impressive for this week. If the early snow this year has finally settled to a good base this weekend is going to be great for those headed up.

I AM!! Havn't had the sleds out for three weeks and I am itching to go ride.
Stay tuned for the Saturday report.

Riding today was good. The reports of 6feet of fresh snow is a little exagerating but we did ride 3 feet of powder all day long. I am beat. Still rocks and stumps under the snow so you have to ride with caution.

It is definetley worth the trip for some of you now but ride with caution. Snowy Range Lodge side snow covered but extremely dangerous. Once over the top and around the backside it was great.

May go again tomorrow and I will have to take the camera. Rode with the boys today so we didn't stop a whole lot.

Plan is to be in Laramie Sunday afternoon and at Albany first thing Monday morning :banana: I'll have to show all you guys out west how to high mark with a Zed R 900 :drunk: :smilielol: I have 144 studs :smilielol:

I'm pretty excited first time out to the Snowy Range, have clutch and jets being overnighted, setting up for 8,000-9,000 feet, wife will be on an 07 Panther 570 and my son will be on a 03 Panther 570.
