Jon and I had grand plans for a ride at Snowbird. So, we started at the Tram, rode up the frontside, and through the tunnel:
FYI, the tunnel is closed during the week, but we were lucky enough to run into Tunnel Guy who let us through. The tunnel puts you in Mineral Basin; coming out of the tunnel,
you are rewarded with some sweet views:
We rode a bit down into Mineral Basin:
And back up to Alta:
The views on top were sweet. Timp loomed in the background. Who needs to go to the Tetons?
At the top, we met some ATV'ers.
ATV Dude took our photo in Black and White:
Then we dropped back down into Alta:
and we rode up to Germania to ponder the lines on Mt. Superior. It doesn't look so steep when you're skiing down.
Jon guessed we had ridden 26 miles.
Even though we had grand plans for today's ride, our total miles after 3 hours of "riding" was 13. That's because it was simply a fall chillin' day. Do I look fat?
DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE IS A TRAIL TO RIDE A MTB FROM ALTA OVER TO BRIGHTON OR BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON?
yea a great trail over catherine's pass, you can also hang south and drop over to pole line pass in AF canyon.
It must have felt 26 miles to me since I rode around Snowbird for an hour waiting for Jared to show up, and then for another extra half hour while Mr. Inouye was billing time on a confernece call half way to the top. Fun ride with great scenery and great company; however, the dirt roads at the Bird and Alta were fair (steep and loose in places). Perhaps the trails Bart refers to are better. Anyway, thanks for the ride Jared!
Jared, you look HUGE!!! Hope your at Harvest Moon...
