Continued Snowfall in Colorado: Game on!

JP boondocks his HCR in a couple fresh feet of snow near Winter Park Colorado.

Miller and JP at the summit discussing snowboard lines.

First run of the day from the pickup, JP says "Hell Yeah!" I knew it'd be EPIC from that point on.

HCR break in

Trax blasts through the powder.

The HCR goes through the motions.

Having just over 120 miles on it now, the HCR has finished its "break in" and wow! do I feel it. As I rode this machine in deep snow this weekend I realized how well balanced and designed it is. I felt this before when I got my full suspension mountain bike...which I call the "Butter Train." A feeling that is the result of experiancing great design.

SideNote: I did have to wrench on the sled alittle up there, having to swap out the spark plugs. I think the break in tank of gas may have played a roll here. I did not pre mix the first tank, instead I added oil as I filled it, thats not recommended by the manufacturer. ..oops.
