Rode up this afternoon. Not much snow on the road until between the 4th and 5th. Slushy but rideable to the entrance of Ladies. Snow on the trail there and could see snow on the trail as I rounded the 4th but not a lot. Pushed up to Espresso. Snow wasn't deep but was slippery as hell since it was melting. All the woodwork was dodgy at best. Trail didn't clear until the rockface/boulder feature with the plank running out to it on the left. From there down it was good. A couple more days of warm weather and I suspect she'll be all clear.

Ladies was super slick until the 4th, but clear after that. Some new dirt on Lower Crippler, might make you try the dorp to falt for the first time in a while.

Off the rock, and the braid to the right has been filled with 50 logs. Also, the rock drop after the pimp coaster appears to have some new dirt too.

got up to pipeline this afternoon. just a little bit of snow at the top, but not bad at all. the road was totally ridable up to there. based on pipeline, i'd guess that leopard, ladies, and espresso are all good to go, too.

There's no place like fromme

Yep rode ladies this evening snicker and it was perfect. No snow on the trail and graciously thanked digger at the top of the knoll before dropping into his new work :clap:

On Sunday April 17 I was able to ride fairly easily to lower Oil Can. There was snow but I could stay upright in the vehicle tracks that had preceded me. I would guess that by now a lot if not all the new snow will be gone all the way to the 6th. Last night it was almost dry on the Schoolboys/Juryn loops.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

how long until that braid gets unblocked i wonder? its mostly the hikers and dog walkers who use that side braid. maybe they will have to go around it now. i bet its unblocked by next week. then it gets walked all over, screws up the drainage, then water eats the tranny for the rock drop up!
