Carsons and GaysOne of the best activities to do in the winter besides ski is to go snowmobiling. We think the best company to tour with in the Aspen/Snowmass area is Western Adventures Inc. In 2005 we hit a picture perfect day for our tour. It had snowed a foot the day before but our day dawned without a cloud in the sky. Our friends Pat and Joyce Gay joined us on the tour. On the trailThere were just the four of us in our group and we each drove our own snowmobile. Our guide led us up the trail between snow covered trees, stopping whenever we wanted for pictures. At one spot we could see all four ski areas.



Skiers get towedWe passed some skiers being towed by a snowmobile. They would take turns pulling each other up to the top of the hill and then ski down thru the fresh powder.Fresh tracks








Barb enjoys picnic lunchThe tour included a stop for lunch at an old hut where we had hot chocolate, sandwiches and cookies. Beside the hut there was an open field where we were able to play in the snow - racing each other around the field in the powder.Fred plays in the powder Our guide decided we were experienced enough to handle some off trail riding after lunch so we set off though some untracked snow. Fred and Joyce each got stuck a couple times in deep snow and had to be pulled out but that was part of the fun.
