Just finished a lap Old Buck -[HTML_REMOVED] Severed -[HTML_REMOVED] John Deer -[HTML_REMOVED] Bridle Path - Empress Bypass and it was awesome!
Snow is super packed and dry since it is so cold so there is actually pretty good traction. We were able to pedal the entire way up to new entrance on Severed except for maybe a 100' push on Baden Powell where the rut is pretty narrow.
The ride down was awesome. Way more traction than I expected… I probably could have gone faster but I had a mental block since it 'looked' slick :)
As long as it stays cold it is a ton of fun.
