    I can't make it this weekend. Had my rig at the shop getting new shocks installed but they didn't get it done yet.

    Eldora snow cam was stacked out of the video frame yesterday at noon. They only reported 13", but there was a solid 17+ on the cam by mid day. Wouldn't count on Ned getting "light" snow.

    Eldora sits a good bit above Ned and always gets more snow than in town. I was specifically referring to Nederland, not Eldora. and yes, I confirmed with my wife who currently lives in Ned that they didn't get more than 10".

    Wound up running Switzerland on Saturday, no issues there and only about 12" of snow. Headed over to Ironclads/Bunce after that. Couldn't make it up Ironclads it was so slick, but neither could the side-by-sides so I didn't feel too defeated. Turned around and ran 1/3 of Bunce but wound up separating my front drive shaft 3x because it doesn't have near enough travel. I just had it custom made too < 2 weeks ago.. reached out to the shop, hopefully they make good on it.

    I only cruised the first part of Bunce and Ironclads and it was fun with about a foot of powder.... itís still snowing lightly but I donít think we got much more than a foot or so around here .... but it sure is nice to have a decent snow finally, I mean it is winter

    Did you get all the way through Ironclads? It was slicker than snot on a doorknob for us on Saturday.

    I did not do all of Ironclads, I just went up to the first rock-playground area before it gets a lot steeper. It was 6pm-ish and I was by myself and the snow was pretty deep in areas so I didn't want to get in trouble!
