that looks like fun
If you think digging a 50' long path through 4 feet of hard packed wet snow at 12500 feet above sea level is fun, then yeah its a blast :D

Jim took that photo.
When we showed up 3 guys were busy digging. They were about 2/3rds of the way through. Had been at it for 3 hours already. The two of us jumped in and helped break through. About another 1.5 hours of digging.
When it was all done there was plenty of room for the Rovers, but not their full size rigs. They were dead tired and called it a day on the digging (hell I was tired, still not used to high elevation), so I took a couple passes and used my truck to widen the trail another foot or so.
My engine was stone cold, so thats all diesel smoke behind me. Left a huge cloud :D

The last drift was maybe 10-15' long, but taperred from over 8' down to the ground. As you can see in the second photo we were right on the edge, not any room to try and push through. And it was too late in the day to think about just two of use breaking out shovels again.

Snow should be fully gone by the rally for that trail though.
