      Few greasy spots still lingering but pretty good for the most part.

      Extremely wet and muddy in places.

      About 75% of the trail is ready for red bull crashed ice. Use extreme caution and probably avoid descending this trail for the time being.

      Snow covered, expect variable trail conditions.
