It’s the time of year when many snowmobilers put away the sleds and turn their thoughts to summer hobbies, despite some of the deepest snow depths of the year at high elevation and the many spring storms that still offer deep powder. The only reason I can fathom is that these kind souls want to leave the snow untouched for those of us that are still riding. With fresh snow and blue skies in the forecast, this past weekend the Boondockers crew headed out to one of our favorite riding areas in Nevada (yes, the dry state with all of the desert). ....

On Saturday, lake effect snow from the Great Salt Lake kicked into full gear and the snow totals kept climbing. Somewhere between 3 and 4 feet, I did a 180 and changed my mind about the dangers of riding with no base.
