Week two: The west side crew encounters fewer avalanche chutes than the east, so Jim Johnson, using the loader mounted snow blower, cleared another 8 miles (wow!) to MP 151 through about two feet of snow. (That’s 6 miles from Rainy Pass.)
This week the east crew cleared the rest of the Cutthroat Ridge zone (CR 4 to CR 11) then up and around the giant hairpin curve below Liberty Bell Mountain to the beginning of that avalanche zone (LB 1-4). That’s 4 miles of progress through 4 to 6 feet of road snow and snow slides more than 20 feet deep. A full crew worked all week – 2 snow blowers, a plow truck, a road grader (to break up the ice floor), a loader, a D-6 caterpillar, our snow cat and some pickups, fuelers and the mechanic’s mobile repair shop!
I recently purchased a 2001 ninja 250, mostly for commuting but would like to travel from Vancouver to the Okanagan for weekends if possible. does anyone have experience doing this on a smaller bike? or is it something i should avoid?
of course, I'd then fzck it up with an MRA screen , etc, but that's sure good looking bike! ( tastes vary, of course...)
