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.
All thought right now due to conditions making the entire route will be nothing short of a miracle, 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. 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.
We will set a time closer to the date. 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 .
2. Aaron ( a buddy ^ ) ( 2001 Tacoma )
3. Ptowntaco (bryce) (ride along)
4. nvdeserted (maybe) (work)
Also everyone who is coming does need to bring the usual kit for recovery just in case.
I plan on bringing my huskies and snow shoes just in case.
