Had a nice ride today...decided to mix some old-school with new-school. Did upper/lower Dales, Forever After and Highschool. All in all, Lower Dales handed my ass to me (in the form of an OTB "oh crap" moment), but it was nice to get outside after being off the bike for a few weeks while my fork got rebuilt.

Thanks to all the trail-fairies - Seymour is running amazing even after the epic rain the past week.

Corkscrew, Pingu, Severed were all in great shape today, as was the climbing route (R&R/PL/GSM).

Forever After had a few puddles and muddy spots but still in decent shape.

Dale's was a total mud bog, except the very last part before the exit which has recent work done (thanks!) and was running great.

Is CBC still officially closed? What's the snow situation like up there? I would assume it's totally clear by now.

Thanks to the trail fairies for adding some dirt to the steppy section on Severed below Baden Powell and above the rock roll... I was finally able to ride that whole section clean yesterday!

Anyone out on Seymour today? Wondering how low the snow line is and how muddy/wet it is?  Was thinking of Dales/Forever After + some XC loops for exercise tomorrow.

To answer my own question, Seymour is mint right now (or was, as of Sunday afternoon). With the time change and setting off too late, I just did Severed and Sticks n Stones then back to the car at Old Buck. Perfect dirt and only a skiff of snow around powerlines. Wood was a touch slippery at top of Severed.

Anyone been riding Seymour recently? What are the conditions like? Everything clear below the Mushroom parking lot?

I hear there was new work on John Deer, adding some new corners from one of the straight lines? Has it firmed up yet?

Rode Dales, Forever After, Pingu Pangor on Saturday. All in excellent shape, the work on lower Dales easy route is very nice as well as some changes since last time I rode Pingu. Didn't ride the bottom of Pangor, went over to Boogie Nights instead.

Corkscrew, Pingu, Pangor, Boogieman, Boogie Nights all running mint right now (as of Monday). Usual muddy/wet spots half way down Pangor. Thank you whoever did the work near the top of Pingu.

Tree down near the end of the long swamp ladder bright on Boogieman, already reported on Trailforks.
