Pangor and Severed are snow-free. Conditions are excellent on both, but Severed has 2 trees down at the bottom as mentioned previously, one smallish and one pretty large. There's also a big tree down across the Baden Powell near the entrance to Pangor that can be ducked under but should probably go at some point. All of these trees will need a saw for clearing.

Nice to see some sunshine today!

We rode up under the powerlines to Pingu - a little snow on the powerlines but all rideable. Pingu, Severed, and lower all clear. Sorry, don't know about higher.

I think todays conditions on the lower Seymour trails were some of very best Ive ridden … no dust, no mud, no slippery roots and the bike is as clean as when I started the ride :)

One exception to this is the exit of Bottletop….rest of the trail is fine but the exit has nasty thick ice on and just below the wooden ramp. Be careful…

C-buster, Applicator, Sticks and Stones were all awesome today! No snow or slippery roots, the ground is very frozen! Traction was at an all time high!

There is a tree down at the BP/Old Buck junction (as previously mentioned), as well as one leaning across the trail on the Old Buck climb up towards the exit of Pingu. So if you come out of Pingu and are firing down towards Seymour Rd….be careful.

Made it out for a few hours on Sunday and was loving the dry conditions! Mint

Has anyone been out there today / Monday afternoon? It was freezing right down to sea level yesterday where I am, and I'm concerned about ice on the lower Seymour trails.
Will they be ok to ride tomorrow? (anything/everything below BP)

was out Sunday (awesome) and heading out tomorrow, I think lower Seymour will be the same, tends to be a little warmer and less snow or frost under the tree cover - luv riding that frozen peanut butter!

Rode Old Buck-Bridle-BottleT-Circuit 8 this morning. Light dusting of snow, and a fun amount of slickness. Just enough for easy drifts, very predictable. Only hairball spot is the exit of Bottletop.

Edit: DH tires on the little bike are a must I'd say for these conditions..

Just got in from a Bridle loop, and it was frozen solid. Pretty awesome conditions, with a few zesty roots.

It was busy out there tonight. Nice running into so many people on the trails! Recognized a lot of bikes from the board!

The Mushroom trail between Incline and Ned's has a ton of big trees down. They require hiking over/around and are annoying.

Ned's is good except for the optional root transfer line halfway down the race course. There is a massive tree across the run out to that gap…so don't hit it.

Bottletop is primo!
