We had 10 rigs on this run.

It was a little off camber in sections around Ewe Neck.
I am guessing it had been groomed a week before since it wasn’t all the way drifted over.

Down at the North Fork Paved road some of the people parted ways. The other went to the Sno-park to say there good byes.

This was another great run thanks to the people came. We could not have asked for better weather or snow conditions.
