November 16, 2013, Twin Lakes
« on: 11/17/13, 03:22 PM »

We had a great day out in the winter wonderland of Twin Lakes/Winchester Mtn area.  We parked about 5 miles from the Twin Lakes TH so most of our day was spent skinning the road.  No problem, we were just happy to be out in the snow!  We skinned above the lakes a little ways but early season kinks (cold hands, painful boots, tweaky hips) kept us from going too high or getting multiple laps in.  Good skiing down from the lakes between road sections and thankfully never had to don skins back to the car.

There were three off road vehicles that made it too the Lakes TH, interesting hobby these guys do all winter!  We passed them halfway up though! 

Thanks to Silas for the tip on Winchester and Wayne, Ira, and Jenni for a fun day!

They were lifted trucks/jeeps with huge deflated tires that just crawled up the road in deep snow!  Didn't get any pics as I left my phone at home.

We parked off the side of the road about 5 miles from the Twin Lakes TH.  Snow there was about 12-18".
