What do you guys think about the first half (upper half) of Forever After? It's probably just due to my lack of fitness [HTML_REMOVED] skills but I just can't seem to maintain any flow on that part of the trail. The whole Dale's to Forever After route just kicks my butt every time.

There are some tough sections for sure, but it's cleanable with some practice.

Penny and Martin, good job on severed. I never really liked that trail until the work you did made it awesome.

Technical climbing is definitely my major weakness - obviously its not a climbing trail, but the little techy climb spots is where I lose all of my flow.

Pangor - after the nasty rocky section (about 2/3 of the way down) is an ice rink about 20 meters long. JUST ice covering the trail. The rest of the trail is great.

Neds - There is lots of ice pools. I'd avoid this trail until it thaws. Sort of a hit and miss but there is some decent ice sections.

Boogieman and C-Buster are perfect, no ice, bone dry!

The work on Baden after Old Buck makes the climb super smooth, well except for a couple spots between the bottom of Incline and the Severed turn off, where the drainage cuts are ridiculously harsh.

Enjoy the trails before the wet starts next week!

Super fun day out there on Seymour. Rode TNT, Dales, Forever After … Also did some loops of Sticks and Stones, hero traction out there except for the odd frozen patch (careful of those)

Finished off with Empress, perfect condition, right to the last roll then solid ice.

Thanks to the repair work on Dales, near the end of the trail. It had a few ragged bits that were nicely fixed up.

Thanks Kever, Everyone seems to really like it, but it means more from a fellow builder :)

Sustainable will be around forever.

No ice on Severed until the end of the gully right at the bottom, and the new berms are finished and running nicely!
