No word around here of people riding it yet, so it probably hasn't been cleared, so you will probably be dealing with the deadfall.

How loose is it out there now? Full on dirt surfing or still got a bit of tackiness?

Finally spent a hell of a weekend in Pemby!

We rode Gravatron(trout), which seems to have seen little maintenance in a while with a few trees down in places… still some good fun in there…

Then Overnight sensation and creampuff… both of them super fun and in great shape.

Next day we went over to One mile lake and rode 306… what a fun trail!

On the way home we managed to finally hit all of PHD. The upost part sure gets the adrenaline going, but everything was very much doable.. The only roll I didn't feel on the day was on the middle section with the sharp right corner after it.. but seeing my buddy it didn't look to bad either!!!

:lol: I clearly didn't think that post out. Point taken considering how dry it was last night down here.

Only three dots in an ellipsis. ;)

I have got a question, when is Pemberton and its trails more or less snow-free? I want to visit Pemberton for some riding and some other stuff next year, probably between April - June, not sure about the exact date.

Snow to the valley floor today… that may be it for (non-fat) bikes for a while.
