Non Dual Bliss
I've been snowshoing the Deer Creek loops in the early AM since I've been back and this morning it struck me that the snow is set up hard enough now that it's doable on a LGP snow bike like a Pugsley or whatnot; at least in the early hours of the morning. With all the traffic it's gotten lately, it's got a nice hard 2' wide crust on top of the trails that the shoes don't even dig into but still enough loose snow for traction. The "wall" is almost a smooth trail now, you'd probably still have to push up it, but it'd be a blast coming down! Worst part of the trail is just leaving the parking lot but after the first 100 yards or so, it's golden.
