This is a poorly shot edit of the Ridgeback 3 descent from the junction with Snakes & Ladders.

Ranger Summit

Out and backed Ranger yesterday on 2 inches of fresh snow over nicely compacted (and decently wide) track. Excellent traction with studs. A few spots were a little crunchy with visible ice under snow.
Snakes & Ladders

Rode Snakes (like... from Ranger to valley bottom) and back yesterday. There was 1-2 inches of fresh snow on an excellent base. Easy up and down. Suspect it will be fine without studs.
