    A buddy and I rode it a week ago actually... we had to ride some of the fire road once the snow got too deep for our shuttle vehicle. A little over a quarter of the trail was covered in snow that we were either bashing through having a blast or hiking through mostly because it was just too deep. Still a cool experience tho shredding a little snow! The temperatures started in the twenties and got into the fifties at the bottom.
