The weatherman keeps saying it's gonna warm up, but it's not happening. Some good pow up in the locals, though.

unrideable from the 3rd tonight, a good 4" in the clearings. Attempted Ladies, props to whoever laid the one set of tracks on it, way straighter than mine. Started being somewhat rideable after Bart's bridge, some tracks coming in off the road there (good idea). Clear from the Ladies / Skull junction (top of the little climb after the A frame). Oh and I :heart: Digger, you'll see when you get to upper Skull.

Pushed into Ladies at the 4th. Deep snow for the most part just as the above post described, not really worth the effort to get up there. Some fun new additions on Skull. Lower Crippler was great.

Krinkum was a waste of time around 1:30pm today. Too much snow. I did the old tripod slide down much of it. The flat parts were too deep to pedal. I came back out to the rode before Kirkford and hit Bobsled. It's fine. The rideable tire tracks end at the 3rd swtichback. Anything above that is probably a waste of time right now anyway.

headed up around 6 today. Pedaled until just after the 3rd and pushed up to the 4th and cut into Ladies. A bit of snow until the swamp then good riding. Skull and Lower Skull were in good shape and there are some new goodies on Skull. Thanks to the builders for that!

Cut into Krinkum / Kirkford at the 3rd tonight. Walked or slid down most of it. Bobsled and Griffen were good though.

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

Went up to Pipeline today. Probably 3-4 inches on the 6th switchback. First few hundred meters of the trail were pretty deep and tough riding, but the rest was in great shape. Bobsled was good as well.

Snow was unridable after the 5th, but you could pedal all the way until then.

completley rideable all the way to pipeline/ladies. someone has driven up the road so you can ride in the tire tracks all the way up to pipeline. the first section of pipeline has a bit of snow on it. not unrideable but not great either. snow stops at the section with the new wood and its just really wet from there till the end.

There was a fresh "tide mark" of snow on the trees of Grouse/Fromme this morning on the way into work. Looked as though it was fairly low as well :mad:
