Guess it is time to put away the skis and get out the wheels. How about you?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Went for a great XC today in our April fresh stuff.

Blue sky and hot sun.

That's about it for my ski season today.

On to the wheels and boards.

What is it that you are running or riding now that the season is winding down?

 

 

I made my first legit snow takeoff today, the landings were a bit rougher due to winds.

I'll put the wheels on tonight but soon it will be the floats.

My goal this year is to learn to invert one of my 6 channel helos without buying a bunch of spare parts.

 

Then there is my favorite politically incorrect hobby of puttin' holes in things from far away.

Skiing in Utah doesn't end until Snowbird closes its summer skiing season.  One year, I skied Snowbird on July 1st!  The skis stay on for weeks to come yet! wink.gif

Mine transforms to this, and I don't need to change my tires, so I think we are just gonna keep the skis out since A-Basin is June 2nd right now. biggrin.gif

NayBreak, Where is that? Quite the challenge to take that in the rain or is that snow? Hard to tell the rock is wet but there is snow on the ground. I still baby mine too much to try that in those conditions

Wheeler Lake. It was snowing.

If you don't like that wedge, which rolls you if you slip in on the way down, you get this...

We should get more seasonally appropriate anyway.  This is my kind of road.

 

 

 

Maybe we could settle the Utah vs. Colorado debate at The Confluence?

 

 

 

Looks pretty even...

Skis aren't going away quite yet... Stowe doesn't close til this weekend, and Jay should be open for weeks to come, so I still have some ski days to get in. But I'll also be mixing in my warm weather activities of kayaking, fishing, and golfing. Hoping to get in at least one day of skiing in the morning and golfing in the afternoon before everything closes.

My bike tied up on the aft deck of my boat heading out towards home in Long Island Sound after navigating Hell Gate in NY's east River.

Alta is STILL open, and Snowbird is targeting an early June close.  NO need for four-wheeling yet! wink.gif

That may be true but the weatehr in Moab is perfect this time of year. I'm heading out there end of may, latter then I would prefer because it will be hot, especially for the rock climbing we are planning. Going to attempt to climb Ancient Art and Castleton towers.

No question, I am still skiing. Just had to cancel a Moab camping (in Arches NP) reservation for other reasons, totally bummed about that as early May is perfect.

Time for jet-skiing and boating.  (although that's really all year-round here in Miami)

I hope you have a sim or a nano CPX Not sure that's something I would want to practice with the 130 or the 450.
