"The best ride they ever had" is how they put it.  Took 6 guys on a one night (ended up being two nights) for a night ride into Hodges the eve before and a full-on tour of the Gaff yesterday.  Tons of snow of course but the crossing from Sandy Pond to the Quarry was a mixture of powder and wind beaten snow.  We ducked into the few treed spots on the other side of the Summit and the real fun began.  Mary March Brook was awesome with tons of powder, endless drift jumps and deep powder to carve for kilometers.  Several riders in the group were able to take riding to a new level with these condition……they will have a lot more fun from now on!  We took Patrick’s pond – South Brook back to the vehicles for a nigh ride out.  South Brook was supposed to be one of the highlights with and endless meandering track of deep powder but we were all dead tired and didn’t play a lot….although conditions were ideal.  Once again had the pleasure of having Tom Caines along for the ride.  Thanks for all your help yesterday Tom.  I know it was very much appreciated by all!
