Snow Wheeling at the Ahtanum State Forest “Round Two”

On Saturday March 9th, 2013 Eastern Washington Adventures Club members met up at Highland Quick Stop in Cowiche Washington for the Ahtanum 4×4 Snow Wheeling Run. This was a second try at the same area we ran two weeks before where we did not make it very far due to the powder snow. We had three rigs on this run, Guido – TJ, Rangerat – YJ, and Ceg – JK. TJ40 rode with Guido. We convoyed to Cowiche Mill Road and aired down.

Once aired down, we headed up Cowiche Mill Road and then up C-1300 onto Hatton road. Less snow on the way up than two weeks before. Up on Hatton the snow was great for traction. We stopped for a break at the area we hit the soft snow and got stuck two weeks before.

We moved on up the ridge finding some soft powder drifts along the way. We all got stuck at one time or another. We turned around at a big hill climb that had snow real deep powder snow.

We back tracked our route in having fun playing in the snow and finding some deep drift to get stuck in.

Back down on Cowiche Mill Road, we turned up C-1000. The road was wet and made a mess out of our rigs.

We turned up and ran Cowiche Ridge Road. The snow was great for traction even in the deep areas. We made it a long way up but turned around since it was getting late in the day at an area that we had trouble with last year.

We back track down to the end of the Cowiche Mill Road and aired up for home.

This was a great day snow wheeling with friends.
