       If you want a quieter ride at the weekend use the trails to the south of the carpark. Rangers Summit yesterday was dry and in good condition.

       Jan 2, morning
      Snow too soft. Constant momentum interruptions by hikers or coming to a halt on 3/4 of the hills due to sinking or being pulled into ruts.

      Best to stick to low elevations this week with the warmer temps.

       In pretty good condition today. Some fresh snow at the top. Fun climb!
