Just got back from a ride with Bill and Kathi M up Granite Creek just up the highway from Sutton. We got about 4 miles up from the highway through a really cool canyon. The ice was super slick so I put my Freddies Revenge tires on the Large Marge wheels. I didn't think they would fit very well but they worked great, it put all the studs on the ice for super traction but man were they noisy.
Despite all the cold weather lately, there was still a lot of open water probably due to the fact that these are big rapids in the summer with a pretty good gradient to the creek. It looked like the ice had frozen during high water then the water went down and left all sorts of hollw areas as BillM found out when he encountered a real icehole. It was a great slalom ride coming back down.
