Not long back now from a Gaff tour and the conditions ranged from good to excellent and the weather could not have been better.  Tons of snow and plenty powder play spots.  We left Dawes Pond, crossed South Brook, Sandy Pond and worked our way down the Valley towards Barney Brook.  So many excellent play spots its hard to choose!  After a boil up we went from Whit Hills – Foretop, Main Top, Summit and down Mary March Brook which is solid (as well as every other brook we were on today).  Driving across the open county was packed snow but plenty smooth to move along 40 – 50km  per hour.  Plenty powder patches to keep the machines cool and many Kms of soft snow from the sun.  Stunning day!  From there we took Patrick’s pond to South Brook and back out.  We saw two fox, moose and so many small groups of caribou I lost count.  I took a few pics of a herd of about ten feeding just off the edge of White Hills.  Tons of snow, great bunch and a wicked day!
