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

      Some icy sections, studded tires highly recommended

      Lightly snow covered and well tracked. Beautiful fat biking conditions.

      Fresh packed snow with ice underneath in some areas. Some exposed roots and rocks. Studs pretty much needed.
