Climbing up to Lower Espresso yesterday was fine. Riding down it was a bit challenging, super icy.

it's pretty icy right now, the rain has melted some of the snow, but it's refrozen as well, so avoid early morning.

I pedaled out to SFU this afternoon and up the road to the top in hopes of heading down a few trails but the snow was too wet/slushy. After the first 30m or so of Grearjammer I turned around and pushed back up to the road as it wasn't really worth it imo. I would imagine it would be similar for Fromme and Seymour today. Climbing up would be out of the question but considering the temps and how quickly the snow is melting you might be ok for a ride down tomorrow on the shore.

Did No Quarter to where Executioner crosses this morning and it was great, only 2 dabs

came down Executioner and the compact snow was good, but by the time we got to the bottom, things had warmed up and it wasn't so good

So it you are going, go early while it is still crusty

Thanks again, but I think I had too much of the side cut before writing my message ; my friend only comes next week-end ...

Everything should be ok then ...

If it means anything I gave lower Seymour a try yesterday afternoon and it was a slushy mess. Little traction. Hard to climb and descending was slow. It was a beautiful day to be out, but I’d rather have been doing trail recon or clearing downed trees or something other than being on a bike.

Did a recon trail run lap with the dog on Fromme yesterday. Going to take a while for it to melt with this forecast.

Rideable to D'yer Make'r.  Off and on the bike to Mtn Hwy. Executioner/ Dreamweaver a laugh riot today. Caution is advised on anything below Baden Powell.
