Rock out with your socks out. Some ruts developing in dry fall-lines.

I love this trail. It's a trial rider's dream descent. It's beautiful, incredibly technical with a few burly rolls, and is full of super grippy...

Road is still rideable to 200m from the trailhead and then knee deep snow. Not worth it yet. Lower is clear.

 More rock slab goodness. An awesome and technically challenging trail.
