How low is the snow?

I was at the Mushroom Trail and Power line intersection on Seymour yesterday, headed for a quick SevereDeere lap. No sign of snow up through the power line clearing, so I'm assuming Pingu is also clear. If Crinkum is almost clear on Fromme, that should mean that Corkscrew should be almost clear on Seymour (same elevation). Looking forward to some longer descents after the upcoming rains clear things out a bit more.

Took the backside up Burke,  the farthest east road on Sunday. 

There was about 5 inches of snow before the last left hand turn to Six / Red R. Didn't go up any further out of respect for the builders because the trails would have been snow packed / wet AF. Wouldn't recommend going any higher since it'll probably damage the trails. 

Dropped in to big boy time and it was mostly fairly dry thankfully, took it really easy,  don't want to tear up the trail.

Small patches of snow at the top of man handler on eagle, but the trail is clear, including the big entrance ramp. East bound and HT good to go too

Yesterday Fromme was good up to about Ladies/Pipeline. Some snow on the exposed parts of the road. Pipeline was good.

Leppard was basically clear a few days ago. Last bits of snow/slush but all clear past bathtub. Was wondering about 7th but thinking it's still pretty sketchy.

Was up fromme on Sunday (march 7th) everything got maybe half a centimeter but nothing more, 3 inches of hardpack snow on the ground starting at the 6th switchback, the creek by expresso was a torrent and everything was melting, I'd expect a lot of the last switchback to be rideable this weekend if not 100% clear by next.

Was up at the end of the day (Wed Mar 10) and there was still snow at the 5th, but the Crinkum and all trails below were devoid of any snow.

Snow was starting to stick to the ground at the power lines on Seymour yesterday morning. Any idea if it stuck around / got worse?

Aaaand I’ll answer my own question. Just a whisper of snow on GSM and touch at the power lines as of today at 4:00pm.

To add to this, yesterday the top of Corkscrew was snow covered, melting quickly, with a ridable line through it. Completely clear about 2/3 of the way down, and nothing on Pingu. 

I would imagine the dump on Sunday would have affected Fromme, as it was slushing from the sky at my place on W.Queens.

Wet slushy mess at the 5th switchback on Monday. Crinkum was more wet slushy mess.

Muddy and wet - Give the trail a break until the weather clears and the trail can recover seems to be a consistent theme.

Thanks buddy!
