We got into the wild on the 4th of July


The Boreas was back in its birthplace this Independence Day

The 4th of July has been in the rear view mirror for a while but we had such a good time that we still have to share. We took the Boreas MXT trailer to a pretty special place, its birthplace and muse, Boreas Pass. Once we got to dirt we pulled over and I took the dirtbike ahead of the truck to scout for spots. This way we were able to find the perfect campsite on the 3rd of July that was big enough to have 4 other parties join us, with enough tree coverage to not see or hear the vehicles on the pass.

And the best part? We were able to ski, bike and dirtbike, all out of the same camping spot! On the morning of the 4th we had a late, breezy breakfast, then I took the bike out to a spot I had skied before to see if it was good to go. After scouting it out I decided the spot behind camp was still better so we walked out to that chute. It was a short but steep 1.5 mile hike that took our breath away, both from the view and the thin air at 12000+ ft. We skied down mid-afternoon through the mashed potatoes snow and got back to camp in time for a beer and snacks in our deluxe kitchen 😊

After the late lunch we grabbed the bikes and rode the Bakers Tank trail to Aspen Alley, through the beautiful tree tunnel and into town. We hitched a ride back to camp and spent the evening with perfectly crisped marshmallows and Reese’s cups.

The next 2 days were more of the same with bikes, shuttling, and ripping up and down the Pass. The weather was perfect and the company was grand – we hope you all had a great 4th of July too and were able to get into the wild.
