I couldn't resist Ski Country's Gamblers Sale - picked up new Dalbello IL Moro MX boots, Head Kore 93 skis and a Giro Zone helmet to replace my 10-12 year old setup yesterday.

Yeah - I really like 'em so far.

Yes, we didn't get snowshoes because we'd have had to drive back into Leadville to return them or into Silverthorne and then back to the trailhead after the snowmobile tour. The trail was pretty well tracked in as long as we didn't get to far onto the edges. We did both go thigh deep a couple of places when we strayed to close to the down slope edge or once we reached the old buildings.

Garret is sitting on top of the gate post for the gate across the road:

We stopped when the packed in trail became too indistinct and we started going boot-top to knee deep with every step.
