Time to get this party started!

Campbell Mtn - 100% good to go, and has been for weeks
Jerry's/Separatist Mtn - 100% clear

3 Blind Mice - Some deadfall at higher elevations. Small snow patches at Cow's End. Reservoir is still snowed in, but we rode across Tripod to High Pony yesterday and no problems. I'm anticipating hitting Rainbow from the top either later this week or at the latest next week.

Carmi/Peat Bog. Lower sections are clear, with some new features. Upper Bog is still a couple of weeks from being clear.

Rock Oven - Good to go from the bottom, but the doubletrack climb has been badly washed out in a couple of spots. Ellis Canyon entrance is a good month from being clear.

Kobau - anticipate it being ready for the first ride on the May long weekend.

The Bog is open with some pushing through snow.

The Mice is clear to the Reservoir. Watch for the occasional deadfall as the snow was a bit heavier this winter. Lots of tamarack leaning across the trail in less traveled areas.

Rock Oven is clear all the way, although there is a pretty good washout on the climb.

Snowline is now over 3k' above the lake, and it's melting fast. Kobau should be good to go in about 2 or 3 weeks!
