I want to get some people out for a day of snow wheeling in Verdi. We have had over 2 feet of snow fall in the last week or so and its great out here. There is a fire road that goes from Dog Valley in Verdi to Boca and then a trail that leads up to Boca Springs. Right now because of the snow and the number of people that have been out there the trails are semi difficult to moderate.
All thought right now due to conditions making the entire route will be nothing short of a miracle lol, its possible. If conditions permit then we can do the whole trail in 2 hours. However there are several places this trail passes by that have great spots to hit some back country powder. Also there are several other trails that stem off from the peak of Dog Valley that are extremely difficult. The trail is mostly clear with almost no areas that require major trail armor. The main difficulty here is snow, ice, and traction.
At the end of the dog valley boca trail is Boca springs. A nice little camp ground with restrooms, picnic tables, and a spring. However making it all the way is going to be hard. Everything out there is untouched by vehicles. From there another network of trails exist but these are EXTREMELY difficult. I was just planning on eating lunch there.
If things go perfect we can also fit in some riding, snowshoeing, or even shooting as there is a range out there. Not sure how the weather will permit but we shall see.
I have never organized one of these on here before so if any one wants to chip in or help please feel free.
* A few members may stay the weekend and get in some snowboarding / skiing at northstar FYI
* I have oba so we can air up people from my truck as well and hopefully others can provide other support.
So far the list is .
Time: Dec 18 Meet at Terribles @ 10AM (ish)
** I have changed the meeting point because the road can get confusing. Instead we are going to be meeting at the Terribles Gold Ranch Casino / Chevron / Jack in the Box off of highway 80 . Here is the link. Its really easy to get to just get off 80, go left, take your first right. LOL We can gas up, grab anything needed and even hit the lotto lol!

Also everyone who is coming does need to bring the usual kit for recovery just in case. I am not kidding when I say the last time I was up there we had over 30 trucks and suv's stuck.....
I plan on bringing my huskies and snow shoes just in case. LOL
