Can I come again in the summertime and see the place you took me when there’s no snow on the bottom? (Permitting for a shameless plug for summer season enduro driving, ’trigger they do this too!)  

Nice query!  Sure, and we’re already are experiencing this in reverse from two teams who ripped with us this summer season.  We took them to the place we have been and so they normally exclaim, “NO WAY – I cant imagine this is similar spot!” Issues look completely different with 6-8ft of snow on the bottom.
