So those photos above were from my friend Steve. He's actually knows about photography vs I just click the button a lot. I'll post some more tomorrow that I took.
So we really did have a fantastic day with the Princess and her Daughter and Sno-Drifter and his better half..and I'm not talking Barry the sno cat dog but his real better half. I had my two kids and friend Steve tag along on the sled. There was fresh snow, no wind and about as warm as can be with plenty of sunshine. In fact I've been glowing for two days from having too much fun and too much sun!
Sno drifter and my kid rope towed up behind the cat the whole way, pretty much matching move for move. We went up some steep stuff with some overhanging cornices and a couple of tricky spots to get through but ultimately we Tuckered on up. I'm still giddy about it. Sno Drifter offered to drive my cat back down so I could ski with the kids. I consider Sno Drifter to be the world champ Tucker driver so I had no worries about it getting down the mountain. We did however have a track issue where the top rollers jumped over the top of the upper captive rail but these Tucker SnoCats have an amazing support crew and it was basically fixed by the time I boarded down to the cat. Got a lesson on track tension after that.
Days like yesterday just amaze me, we had a combination of person, place and thing that just doesn't get much better in my book. The adventurous spirit is strong in this group.

Took the Tucker to the welding doctors today and should be ready for more action by Friday. Going to have them fix the top captive rail and fill in a divot that's starting to wear down on the rail that is just past the gear where the rollers start to head back down and made an indent....Still not over...

Still not over around here. Dumped another foot over the last couple of days and it looks like more snow the next few days. We may have 2-3' ft of new snow by the weekend. Tucker is back from the welding Drs and ready for more miles of smiles.....

I'm sure you are all tired of seeing sno-surfers endless pictures but sorry I can't help myself. Had a fantastic outing with an old friend from Jackson Hole today. Warm weather plenty of snow up high. Getting thin on the approach though.

It's not over on Mt Washington if you can get up into Tuckermans.

Can't remember when I saw snow this late up there.

I think we might be getting snow up high still. Just got my truck back with a new transmission. Half tempted to see if I can find some snow but the wind has been distracting me.
