I went to Eureka the snow was good once you got back about 6-8 miles, but it was really cold -22 degrees. And there was still moisture in the air so goggles were useless.

Still put in 50 miles and had a blast. The snow in the mountains is really nice good base and 2-3' of fluff on top. It was deep enough that I had to turn around on a couple of hills. Couldn't just blast over the top.

Some firends and I broke trail up Johnson Pass last Sunday. Turnagan Pass has a lot of snow right now, last Thrusday a friend of my said that it was one of the top 5 deepest days he has seen.

Just a note that Turnagain, Johnson, and that whole area are not for the inexperenced riders. When you go you need to have the right gear, shovle, probe, and peep are a must. We had to cut a few alders and build a snow bridge to keep going, but once you get back in its great ridding.

I have a couple of pics that I took but when I tried to up load them they were too big. Anyone know how I can cut down there size, I just got the camara for X-mas and still learning how to use it.

Johnson Pass isn't open to riding yet is it? When I talked with the Seward ranger district they said there wasn't enough snow at the trail head to open any of the areas yet.

I am hoping we get enough snow by this weekend to open Lost Lake, 6 guys planning on the trip.

The software that came with your camera should allow you to size the images, the one I got my wife for Christmas will let me take a 1600x1200 image and one click it is a 640x480 image. Check out the particulars in your software.

Here are the pics.

The group was a little big to be breaking trail but it was not too bad.

There was plenty of snow. We also made the trail around the normal one to avoid most of the bumps.
