In 2019 we did something different, we bought a snowmobile! This was to enable us to get skiing in the great backcountry provided in the Purcell Mountains, just West of our house.

But, to learn the ropes back there, you need a guide and our guide is “Powder Pete” Longston. He has been kind enough to take both Eric and I under his wing and show us some great and safe places to enjoy skiing and touring not an hour from our house.

He’s also been Eric teacher on both how to get your sled stuck and then how to get it back up on the trail again. This particular workout is not unlike wrestling a 700 pound dog in mud.¬†Good times.

Actually, they have been great times so I put together a little video montage of my adventures with Powder Pete & Eric. Enjoy!

Thanks Pete for all the entertainment!
