      Light dusting of snow hiding occasional freeze/thaw ice. Summer bikes are fine, but studs are recommended.

      Superb riding-mostly dirt with a dusting of snow, some sections of packed snow that were firm and fast on skinnies.

      Snakes and ladders is in very good condition. Smooth allowing for fast pace. Fun!

      Few damp spots, usually in dips/low lying areas. Plenty of firm spots to avoid these sections without widening/damaging trail
