      I tried to ride this the evening of May 14. Looking at where you descend into the trees from the top of the mountain, the trail looks like a bobsleigh track. Still covered in snow and ice. I ended up going back down via Prairie view

      I rode this the evening of May 14. The first half to two thirds is dry with some wet patches. After the two thirds point there is significant packed snow and ice to the first view point. From the first view point to the top of the mountain is muddy snow/ice. Give it another week or so
