I went up to Willow yesterday, not expecting much for snow yet but I took my fat bike along just in case. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Willow area looks to have received about 6" of cold powder snow about a week ago. Area trails are smoothing out and setting up nice with snowmachine use and some trail grooming by.
I started out on a evening moonlit ride around the swap loop, temperature a chilly -5F. Got half way around the loop then suffered a flat tire half-way around. Foolishly, I went out unprepared for fixing a flat (riding my spare tube) so had to stash my bike off the trail and hike/run 5 miles back to cabin where I was staying.
If you are itching for some snow riding amid the drought of snow in Anchorage, Willow is a great option right now, just take a spare!
