Another beautiful day at Lost Lake today. Went in snug. Road was good, trail was good, snow was terrible till about half way to the lake. Great riding in select places. All the normal places down by Cooper Lake were horrible, alders everywhere. Least amount of snow I have ever seen on that side.

Thats the shawn I know, we rode snug/LL today, had a blast. The snug side sucks and the ride over to the Seward side was nasty windy, but we found a half dozon clearings with 2 feet of fresh. Didn't think there would be any good snow, but we managed to find it.

Rode Prim today, weather doesnt get any better. Snow was awesome in places, terrible in others. Had an absolute blast other than hitting a hard stop on a steep hill and getting pinned under my sled. Everytime I moved a muscle the sled pushed harder on my chest. Knocked the wind out of me. Was kinda funny. There were 15 people not 100 yards from me but they were all watching each other play on the hill just north of me. I tried to yell for help but I couldnt breathe. I just laid there and watched them play for about 5 minutes. lol. M1000 is pretty heavy when most of its weight is sitting on your chest. Finally decided to suffer the consequences of letting the sled roll the rest of the way over me just to get it off my leg and chest, so I started wiggling one muscle at a time until I got out. Let the sled roll back onto is skis and rode back down the hill. Dug the snow out of my neck and kept playing. Was too nice to let something like that bother me.
