Gary using his winch for the very first time!

Like I mentioned, it was only a few miles before we reached a closed gate, so we were forced to turn around.
On the way home on Sunday, we wanted to check out Jones Pass even though we knew there would be tons of snow. We approached the parking area just off the main road where there were a handful of snowmobile trailers. The snow started right at that parking lot. We both aired down and started what we first thought would only be a 100 yard drive.
The snow was deep, but it was extremely snow packed from the snowmobiles in the area.
We were extremely surprised to find out that the snow wasn't slowing us down... Not one bit! We kept on trekking down the trail as snowmobiles were coming down giving us the strangest looks. After a mile, we made it to the valley clearing where Gary stopped for just a second too long and came up 20 yards short of the top.
Ryan helped winch his dad up the last 20 yards for some picture opportunities.
The Boudreau crew!
This is a rock that is usually a good flexing rock. For some perspective on how deep the snow is, here is a pic of the exact same spot in the summer
