Pretty good shape from the north junction with Ridgeback 2 all the way back to Station Flats. Two trees down across the trail near the Ridgeback 1+2 junction, but easy to spot.

Really great conditions - very little horse traffic means a fairly smooth trail. Hard packed enough to ride on regular MTB tires, but studs recommended.

Trail has been set in the new snow by a couple of snowshoers. It is not packed and has drifted over in a few places and is not easily ridable on a fat bike in its condition, so we abandoned our attempt before the trail was too far from the road.

Between sulfur springs and parking lot, trail is packed snow, above that it is not well packed by snowshoes and disappears entirely under deep snow drifts.
