    Yikes, all ready:) Have fun!

    Looking at my snowshoes that are hanging on the wall in front of me, they're ready to go, not enough snow yet.

    I need to dig my snowshoes out. I’ve got a pair of MSR EVO ascent. I used to go a lot at night. With the moonlight and snow reflecting the light, it can be very pleasant.

    GV mountain ascents, can actually run in them they are so small. Have another pair of traditional bear paw style, which are good for cross country on powder. And they they are so quiet, I've seen deer and rabbits while using them.

    How did it go disconnected? Too much blowing snow here at the moment, hard to see. Did I mention earlier there was not enough snow? There is now.

    Disconnected, you have inspired to get back to my winter sport of X-country skiing. Snow in the forecast for the middle of the week now. I had been running in races in the winter, which didn't leave time for the skiing. But COVID put a hold on those races.

    Mountains are dry here. A few resorts are using snow machines but covid is making it difficult.

    Yes, masks are required here and tickets are being sold at limited numbers. I have a season pass so I’m exempt. Passholders and hotel guests are guaranteed access. Others are limited.

    I've been out four times so far. Lots of wind and wearing gloves and hats, but the calves came back quickly. So far no sunday riders yet, it's too cold for them.

    Thought you might like this @disconnected I really liked it:

    Trail dogs (Shimano made this about mountain biking and the people and dogs who love it). I think my own (long ago) dog would have loved this but I never took him with me, as I thought it would be too dangerous for him.
