no, but super wet and saturated from what I've heard, and based on how saturated the wet weather suitable trails are, I would strongly encourage avoiding Blackcomb.

Is LOTS snowed out? did it a few months back and it was awesome .

billy epic or howler. Snowline dropped significantly yesterday, just above creekside this morning. go to Pemby, it's pretty much all time there right now with the rain.

Second Billy and Howler. Also the grippier rock slab dominated trails are still riding well. Indutrial Disease drains well, 3 Birds, Lower Sproat all run pretty well. Flank yesterday was still below snowline, but there were flurries as I was riding. I'm sure it's there today as we went up to KadenWood last night for a snowball fight and night rip down Big Timber, which is also a safe bet.

Rode BE on Tuesday. It was wet and greasy with some standing water. Rode Pemby Wednesday and it was all time. Not even a splash of mud on my legs.
