Made it to Peugeot upper entrance last night no problem. I am sure Executioner will be easily accessed too. Vehicle tracks are mostly melted out in the new snow or what remains of it. The first couple hundred metres of trail are a bit challenging with wheel grabber snow causing a lot of tripodding.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Yesterday (Friday) 7th unridable, several feet of snow. Executioner looked unridable, several feet of snow. Leopard looked relatively snow free. Ended up riding back down to Ladies from 7th. Ladies is awesome!

Today, 75% of Seventh Secret was unridable, still several feet of snow at the top, executioner was probably mostly rideable.
The road is 100% ridable up to 7th, and all trails below 6th are good to go

Ladies/The Big Stupid are amazing

Was talking to Digger the other day and he told me that "Upper Skull" is actually called The Big Stupid (named after that big rock-face) and has no idea why people call it "upper skull"

nobody is this dumb.

yeah obviously, which is the correct name though? I figure if anyone knows it would be the Digger..

Made it to Fromme early afternoon, was a bit surprised to see snow so far down.
Did not even go up to Pipeline because even the top of Bobsled had snow on it.
Then it hailed again and thundered, decided it was time to go home.
Should be melted by tomorrow.

ARRGHHHH - just looked out the office window and there's more snow on Seymour [HTML_REMOVED] Fromme

^Fixed my post

I never even knew that the trail wasn't called "Upper Skull" because on the NSMBA map it is classified as "Skull,"
Since Digger built the trail he would know what he named it

I will correct people whenever they call the trail "Upper Skull" from now on

Now I feel like an idiot for correcting randoms who thought it was just the other way to go at the end of Ladies.

:(

No snow up to pipeline today. Wanted to go further but almost drowned getting that far.

Lots of puddles on the way down too.

Road is clear all the way past 7th Secret, the first 75 metres or so of the trail were unridable, but after that it is all clear, UOC appears to be relatively snow free and everything else is wet wet wet! :)
