groomed top to bottom, handful of new tracks ahead of us leading to some flat packed conditions with lots of sugary ruts. Big group behind us (like 30+) so conditions will have changed by the afternoon.

packed and rideable all the way up to 7-27, few deeper sections that are tricky to navigate but otherwise good riding.

Tree has been cleared off the trail, all clear to give er! A few loose sections on the west side of Moose road, but nothing new there. The views up the valley are pretty spectacular!
