An addition, Chris2 and I rode up on Saturday, 2" of heavy snow at the 5th, but didn't get any worse going up. Made for a really hard climb, but some of the best riding I've ever had on that mountain.
Grannies was clear of snow, ridiculously green, and kept me totally honest.

On sunday the snow was melting pretty quick, and I imagine its clear to 7th by now. Obscenely wet though

Snow from third switchback up. About 3 inches at entrance to ladies. Ladies had snow on ladders until the teeter (but the teeter log was snow free)

Went up today and no significant snow on the road until just after Upper Oil Can. Looks like you can still get to 7th but I didn't go up there. No snow on Oil Can.

pipeline was clean and fairly dry. i definitely expected things to be way more wet but it was a perfect day.

it was cool around 2pm when the fog rolled in quickly out of no where. i was only riding the lower trails at that point and it was pretty thick down there but only for maybe 30 minutes or so.

i bet tomorrow around pipeline and up there will be some snow.

QFT. Pipeline was great. Would have gone higher, but I was too lazy.

Per Gynt no longer worth it. Up to 1' in places. Not too flowy any more. Up to 7th all good.

Rode 7th/Leopard/Krinkum/Kirkford/Nat High today. Hit some snow on the road at Upper Oil Can but it was easy climbing in vehicle tracks. 7th had really minor snow at the very top and was very wet in sections, but for the most part it was in good shape. There were a couple of small trees down, with one right over the log ride. Leopard was in great shape; Krinkum was good other than a couple of rocks on a couple of switch backs being dislodged. Kirkford was fine but there was a lot of water eroding a couple of corners after the steeps at the top. Natural High rode as well as ever. I actually like that trail better when it's wet because of the extra character it gives the trail and woodwork. It's so bomb proof and so fun! Thanks Knnn and Ducati for putting a smile on my face 100's of times.

Rode Pipeline and the Dempsey, had to be quick today because of the time we started (3:30), it get's so dark so early. Both trails are in good condition and fun to ride.

It felt particularly dark today. We rode at 10am and were in and out of the clouds all day. Probably best to take along a small light in case of an unforseen mechanical.
