11 riders braved the very cold Blue Bird day with deep fresh snow for the Monte to Bear Lake pizza run on January 18th. Many of us got stuck along the way in the silky smooth bottomless powder.

By Bob Stockwell, with Michael Morgan, LMFT Backcountry snowmobiling is an all-in sport. It takes a clear mind and full focus along with physical abilities to get into, and out of, the best lines and moments. But sometimes focus fades.
