Anyone know what Mountain View park access trails, King of the Shore, Upper/Lower Griffin etc are like currently?

Is car park open again?

On Sunday King of the shore was okay until the very top where it meets Griffen.  Lower Griffen was pretty clear and Roadside was ride-able uphill as well.

I would guess that whole zone is clear by now.

Reading on Facebook and Instagram that Fromme is pretty much 100% good to go except the top half of 7th and some snow patches on the road past Executioner. Climb trail clear.

Hiked through Griffins/Roadside/Wardens/Floppy/38DD and saw nothing white on the ground. The dirt smelled good. 

Sometimes it's worth taking a walk instead of a ride to really get a feel for the place.

Anyone else check out the new Lower Digger lately? Some damn fine flow trail building there, steep minty berms and a few fun jumps/doubles. Seems very fresh but setting up well.

Hadn't ever rode the old lower section, but the upper part is still the same. Pretty sweet way to end a ride. Combined with all the work on the climb trail is even more motivation to park on Braemer and avoid the parking lot congestion.

What do you mean by "the upper part is still the same"? You mean a janky mess, or has any of that been re-worked? 

I've not looked at 'Upper Digger' for at least 12 years as I pushed my bike up it once and decided it was many steps harder than my skill set/testicle size...😄😄😄

Someone had kindly stacked rocks by Sunday mid-day and that log on Leopard was no roll-able.

Yep, janky mess. I actually didn't ride it, I looked at a bit from below and thought the same thing, above my pay grade.

You guys that consider Upper Digger a janky mess can show yourselves to the door. Some of us cheerish and love that which you call a janky mess.
