I'm heading out to Ravenshoe and I figured I would check out the conditions at Hardwoodhills just to see how much snow north of the city got. I know Barrie is a lot more north than Raveshoe but I figured I'd see anyway. It looks like Barrie got 50 cm of snow since Thursday. Yikes! I'm bringing my bike to Ravenshoe and hoping I can get a ride in today.

I think I should have got up earlier and headed to Hardwoodhills for a ski today.

Yes. A few people had already ridden and laid down some tracks. I wanted to take the XCE with 2.3 nokians on but I couldn't find my tools to move the pedals over and put a seat back on the bike. I had to take the racer x with skinny 2.1 tires. The weather today and tomorrow will of course change riding conditions so Ravenshoe will probably be very muddy come Tuesday. I've only been out there with a friend leading and believe it or not I got lost yesterday. Stuff looked familiar but I still got lost. I had to follow my own tracks out after I gave up on doing the loop I usually do with my friend.

I'll admit I'm looking forward to skiing at Durham though.

Good to hear its ridable with a bit of snow, although i wont be up there until at least around christmas. I will just have to see what the weather is like then, and decide if its worth heading up there.

thanks for posting conditions.

I rode the Shoe a week ago and it was great, even got to play on some of the new stuff that's been built. I'm waiting for colder temps before returning as I suspect it'll be a bit of a mud fest this week.
