I believe so, was at the power line junction this afternoon and went down Severed. There was a touch of snow on the side of the power line but very minimal so I think Dales would be good to go. 

Fromme is a different story though. Snow on 3rd & 5th switchbacks. Snow covered on top 25-30% ish of Expresso.

Rode there yesterday. Dales was clear...only a dusting at the open area at the very top of Ned's. Rode Fromme today...snow on Mountain Highway at the 5th switchback. Rode Crinkum, etc...snow free. Looked like the tail end of Leppard was clear.

I rode Eagle today and there was some small patches in the holes / low spots / shadows at the top of Physiotherapy but there was none on the trail and no icy patches. All the wood was totally rideable still as well, a little slick but not even remotely un-rideable.

Imby climb is OK, I have cleaned the whole thing but not in one go.  And holy fuck am I out of shape....

I have some time off at Xmas and will get out there again, I'll let you know how it is!

Seymour good to go below the power lines. I didn't go higher, so may be OK above them too.

Some compacted snow at the 7th switchback on Fromme. Seventh has some snow for a little ways but it clears up quick. The rest is running really well.

Snow this morning in patches around the 5th switchback on Fromme. Snow for the first few hundred meters of Leppard. Then clear (and very wet).
