Might be heading out to the valley to visit the in-laws this weekend. What are the conditions like on Sumas or Ledgeview.

Nothing on TF since Jan 8 for Sumas.

For Ledgeview reports "A little soft and greasy, ,but otherwise good". So I guess all trails clear of snow [HTML_REMOVED] ice?

Cheers

Sumas is likely a bad time.

Ledge is probably pretty good.

Ledgeview will be horrible! Go ride Red! :P Sumas still has lots of snow. It's pretty common for it to have snow into spring on the top half, and given this winter, the bottom isn't doing much better. The south side of ledgeview is supposedly solid, and the west is a little soft and greasy but should be pretty prime by the weekend. Mixed bag and the north side might me a little more juicy. Trailforks is your friend.

Edit: Lol, apparently i didn't read past the first line of your post. So, yeah, soft and greasy. No snow/ice of note, and it's gonna be warmer the next two days.

Hey peeps....Heading thru the valley tomorrow going to go ride Sumas for the first time.

Any suggestions for a good lap that takes 1 to 1.5 hours? 

Thanks in advance

Head over to Sumas and do a Squidline lap. If you want to add a bit more tech, add in Salty Nozzle and continue into squidline.
