      Well, this happened yesterday. Front tire got a little squirrelly on me in the loose. Replaced the Bontragers with Aggressor/DHF combo today....

      Trail was pretty poor until pneuma. There had been a lot of foot traffic and the snow was like mashed potato. The fire cut leading to pneuma was a hike going up, pneuma was ok up to the compression station but looked to deep and chopped up to ride after that.
