Mashed-Potatoe Drift

Anchorage Thursday night group ride organized by Paramount Cycles (P.O.S. Paramount On Snow). 2 hours 40 minutes; 10(+/-) miles of variable snow conditions, most of which was soft mashed-potatoes from our recent snowfall. Riding a Surly Moonlander with 4.8" knobbies felt like cheating as I pedaled through terrain that had most others pushing their bikes. An epic 400ft of elevation change on the Moose Ridge Trail Loop made for numerous opportunities for 'high speed' (for a fatbike) single-track drifting through the corners. Few feelings like getting a 35 pound bike sideways and counter steering through a 45 degree drift in 5 inches of powder.
