The best part? Hitting that new jump line and landing in a foot of powder… especially that last one. :D

So it's snowy up there I imagine? Thinking about a ride tomorrow and wondering if it's worth it.

Rain on Grouse earlier today so the lower trails might be alright?

Probably a soupy slushy mess though, best to leave the trails alone.

Lots-o-snow…have to stay low…was starting to ride my single track granny climb to top of 6th this morning when I ran into bro coming down Oilcan. Start of Ladies/Pipeline/Espresso totally snowed in (6+ inches)…we'll need rain before it's bare again…snow down to 1st switchback on Mtn Hwy…

Rode up this afternoon. Mtn Hwy is totally rideable past the entrance of Ladies/Pipeline. Some compact slush on the 5th, but vehicle traffic and warm weather has cut double track down to the road surface most the way up. Compact slush on the trail on the top half of Pipeline. Made the ride down rather lively. A few patches of bare rock and dirt until the second teeter, then the trail is bare. BP is 99% clear to Lower Crippler and Lower Crippler was clear.

You beat me to it, was just about to post exactly the same info.

I met some girls walking down, they had been up well above 7th and said it was rideble on MTN HWY up to there at least. (They skied from above 7th almost all the way back down - gotta love the shore girls!)

LOL - I saw them too. They were coming past the trailhead at Pipeline as I was gearing up and the one girl was skiing down the road. I'd never seen that before!

We pedaled to Ladies/Pipeline in the car tire tracks, which were bare of snow. Ladies was slushy (3" or so) till about the 4th switch back entrance. At that point the trail was mostly bare.

Bobsled was uber soft, and everything else lower than NH was fine.
