On the hike up I was chatting with an on-call Maple Ridge firefighter and there was a call to pack the dog off the hill that was later canceled. Saw a truck I guess from the power line construction go down the hill with a bunch of people in it.

Yes trails are frosty, getting a little powdery in some of the corners but tons of fun!

Rode Blood Donor, Giant Killer, Hekyl Jekyl, Bloggy Style, and Shotgun.

The main road to Blood Donor is muddy and snow free, and the spur up to Blood Donor has about 6". Once in the trees, Blood Donor is fast and dry. Giant Killer and Hekyl Kekyl are in good shape. So is Bloggy Style. Shotgun is good to the clearing. From the beginning of the clearing to the parking lot, Shotgun is mostly covered in ice. Still very rideable.

Overall, the conditions were some of the best I've ridden at Woodlot.

This past Sunday was a wicked day, close to 10 vehichles up there. Hiked up to Gold mine and that was a bit of a mistake, even getting to the trail was an adventure in itself, lots of snow. Finally I found it but riding down was pretty well hike-a-biking the first half. As soon as I hit the dirt ( somewhere close to the first bridge) it was worth the hike. Rode that into Snakes and Snakes was in great shape, no muddy sections or nothing. Awseome day and heading up tommorow for some more!

I'm happy to get outside and enjoy nature while I can, but I fear for the future of humanity

Got up and out just before dark yesterday.
The pedal up is very slow and boggy and therefore extra taxing.
The trails are extra wet thanks to the frost heave melt combined with the rain…..too bad all the frozen peanut butter is gone

Love the slop! Born to slop. Father was a mudder. Mother was a mudder. You heard me.

Anyone wanna buy my mucky nutz fenders? I have two. $10 each if you meet me at the woodlot this weekend.

If we hit that bullseye, the rest of the dominos will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate.

Did a lap again on snakes, awseome condition.

Woodlot has a perfect progression of trails. If your learning how to jump try snakes, once you got that move to johns and once your dialed there and brave enough move onto hekyl n jekyl and then onto platinum. My problem was thinking i could ride difficult jump trails cause i could clear everything on Aline, yea, not a chance.
