The packed trail is very narrow right now, requiring lots of focus in places with deeper snow, to not fall off the trail.

Prime, packed snow conditions in the southern half, then glare ice up the climb. Studs are more important than wide tires right now - this was great on 2.25" Ice Spikers today.

Running great on a regular mountain bike with 2.25" Ice Spiker tires. No need for floatation, it's fast and slick on glare ice.

Studs recommended. A few icy sections from the Snowy Intersections downward.
