BEST SLEDDING OF OUR LIVES! I have never seen Moab snow like it did this year. So, on one of the most blizzard stricken days, we headed out for SNOWCAT SLEDDING. While others were headed down the mountain because the roads were snowpacked and visibility was low, we were headed up. Grandpa Todd had loaded up his snowcat for sledding at Gyser pass. At our house we always get the 4-wheeler out to haul the kids up and down the hills to make life easier on us. That just seems like such a silly idea now after experiencing this. First of all Grandpa packs the snow down for you with the cat so that when you sled it's lightening fast. Second , he hauls you and your sleds to the top (we had seating for 7 people). Third, he meets you at the bottom of the hill for a heated ride back to the top. It is also convenient if you have a child that decided that he wants to take a break (like Ethan did) because he can stay nice and warm inside the cat with Grandpa while the others continue to enjoy the day. The only not so great part of the day was that it was snowing so hard that you felt like a million needles were piercing your eyes when you went down the hill. So, we ended up blind sledding (eyes closed) most of the day which just made it more thrilling! The combination of having the whole mountainside to ourselves and the snowcat made it a GREAT DAY! On the way home Hailey and Ethan both asked when we were going to buy our snowcat. (Sorry kids the answer is probably never!) It was a fun Christmas weekend and the kids really had fun. Just to make it even better I left my camera there(on accident). The reason why it made it better was because when we got it back it had some classic pictures taken by Josh. They were a great laugh, we love Uncle Josh!
