last weekend my buddy and me had some great snowbike action in austria. Since no lifts were running we pushed the bike uphill and shuttled by car a few times. The powder snow was deep, so the speed wasnt too fast for us beginners. We had tremendous fun!

My plan is to try it out this weekend for the first time. Seems to be a lot of fun and I can wear comfy boots. I gave up alpine skiing years ago for telemarking as my feet are more comfortable in tele boots, but snow boots are like slippers!

So would that make it "Telemark Neutralizing Technology"?
Sorry - couldn't resist.

Bare hands and ears?

Holy Chit, that topography in Maine would generate 10 to 20 degrees F and wind chill (at those breakneck speeds) of 0 to minus 10F. You guys are either tough as nails or my perception of Austria is a little skewed. :D

Looks like great fun!

great pix ritz, them hands look toasty warm.
yes it leaves a warm feeling most of you are so concerned about our hands! :)
Actually temperature were close to 0 degree celcius and we were pretty warmed up by pushing the bike uphill.
