I stopped by graham hills and took a walk, there are just as many soft squishy spots as dry ones. There were a few ruts from riders that morning, so i decided to head back up to stewart. In a week or two they might be ready.

Master,

What's the condition at Stewart? Snow? Wet? Dry?
Snow yesterday was soft, i was able to find a handful of trails with just enough firmness for fat tires, but it's softening up quick. I would imagine after today it might be unrideable. Even the exposed patches of dirt road are leg sapping soft.

Waaah ;) Go earlier in the morning while it's still frozen and then Woooohooooo ooooo :eekster::crazy: What a super sillious fun ride we had this morning :thumbsup::cornut: The woods are such a great place to be in the winter and in the woods around here it is still winter much to my surprise. There was a minimum of 6" and up to a foot in spots with very few bare spots, especially above 700 feet, there are some torched out zones but almost no mud at all. I think because we had a dry late season last year and then the ground mostly froze so all the winter moisture is just running off the frozen ground.

The trail was pretty icy in spots but nothing too terrible and everything else was a super supportive crust with an extremely high traction surface. It was actually more pleasant to ride off the "trail" because it was smooth and higher traction so we played with all sorts of terrain features and rolled through places you would never go into on foot which was really cool. We rode about 5 miles with probably 1200 feet of climbing in 2.5 hours so slow going but oh so super fun.

Sorry no pics, forgot to charge the phone last night :eek:

Now I'm going to have some ice cream :icecream:
