Old Farm TH, North River 12/29/12

Today Telemarkmike myself and my GF set our sights on skiing to 11Th Mtn Th. A car was spotted the day before, a lofty goal? We set out about 9am. The first section of trail to the Botheration intersection had been broken out by Mike and others yesterday. We were zipping along with aprox 1.5 miles (winter TH distance) under our belts Then we hit the end of the paved highway. Conditions weren't to bad but completing the trek seemed a bit out of reach in day light hours given our speed and Mike doing the lion share of the work, we decided to call it good enough for the day. We had to remove our skis once to get past a couple of downed trees, the rest were easy to negotiate. We also crossed a number of streams which were open and took a little care getting across. A couple times we needed to scrape ice after dipping a ski. Best guess, there's about 4 miles of trail broken now. When we went to pick up my car at 11 Mtn Th there were a couple cars in the PL. Looks like they were using snowshoes. Here's a chance for someone else AND FRIENDS to finish what we've started, good luck

Great ski today Mike, thanks for the company and help

I did not see your post until last night about this trip. I' d be interested in the future and maybe more of us breaking trail would make the trip doable.
