In short order shovels appeared, a modified course layout was devised, and the "fun" began. Basically, the course looked like the screen capture below. Meaning we only had to walk through and then shovel about 1/2 mile of trail!
Did I mention that the portions on the campground roads had a nice sheet of ice just under the plowed surface....yeah, they definitely did. So the course was challenging on the road and on the winding single track that was only a single shovel width! Anyway it was a total blast so I'll let the pictures do the talking!
|Deep snow....you know dogs love it. Apparently bikes do too!|
|Clearing the course!|
|The start house.|
|Start of the Men's C, women's B, C, and Juniors.|
|And they're away on the ice!|
|If you can't ride it.....run it...with a fantastic smile!|
|Outta the single track and onto the ice!|
|Staying warm by the fire!|
|Bike parking isn't a problem in deep snow...just stow and go!|
