Do you guys do it? Do you do it for fun, to get up in the woods to hunt, or for other reasons? I'm contemplating a pair or even a pair of cross country ski's to get into some areas I'd otherwise be locked out of when the snow flies... but wanted to hear input from other forum members on how they get into the backcountry when road closures happen because of snow coverage. I don't have access to or really want access to a snowmobile.... I'd be after the physical aspect along with the peace and quiet I found skiing along cross country trails and back roads in California when I lived there. I'd guess that the Mirror Lake Hwy and some of the Diamond Fork/Hobble Creek areas would present me with the same circumstances later in the year.
