    Default Switzerland Trail and Bunce School Road - New Years Day - 1/1/24



    We did this last year as I was told its a tradition on the forum. It was a really fun time and the weather was perfect, hoping to get a group again this year!

    I have better tires this year, I may be in, I'm also a bit better equipped for the winching.

    Hopefully we don't have to spend 2 hours moving a truck out of the way again. Although I learned a lot about winching that day!

    Last year we met at the Sugarloaf Mountain Trailhead on the East side of Switzerland, then did the Southern trail. We could meet at the West side of the Southern trail off 72, then do the whole Switzerland loop? We made really good time through the South spur (before encountering the stuck truck) so barring any other road blocks the whole loop shouldn't take too long. Any thoughts?

    As for meeting time, I'm flexible. I'll be in bed before the countdown so I can start early, but would like to meet before 11am for ample daylight.

    I like this idea. If it wasnt for that stuck truck we had to wench, we would have been done in under 2 hours last year. I still need to get final approval from the wife but should be good for the 1st.

    Depending on my health I may be in. Sugarloaf trail head is where I usually start on New Years runs.

    I ran the south section of switzerland this evening, there's about 70% snow coverage right now. It's all packed in except for the usual spot right where it meets gordon gulch where there's a hundred yards or so with drifts up to a few feet. It is bypassable but would make a nice snowbashing section if nobody disturbs it before new years (I went around as to not spoil the fun). Of course it does look like snow on Saturday and Sunday so there should be plenty of new fun.

    It sounds like there is some interest for this, so Iíll put a run on the calendar tomorrow when Iím at my computer. I would like to have at least 3 to make it happen. I hope everyone is having a good Christmas!
