    Rode hall this morning and might get some idea from that. There was 3/4" of freshies in most north facing trail sections, most of the rock garden and southern sections were free of snow. Got to the lollipop but turned around from there, it was powder on top of postholed ice as it has seemed to be the past couple weeks. There was some fresh cougar tracks near the lollipop. It was a good out back.
    Speculate that Heil the ride up would probably be good but wild turkey would be like the lollipop conditions?

    Heil certainly has lots of packed (rough) snow/ice sections based on all the trails I have been riding around Boulder. Especially since most of the trail is in the shade.

    Rode Heil and the Turkey trail. Both have dustings of snow and therre are some spots on the ponderosa where it is thick but solid as long as the temperature is cold.
    Gotta say it was nice that the majority was dry frozen dirt. NO MUD.
    Of course with the warmer temps comming it'll likely get a bit sloppy. Hit it early and enjoy.

    I did.
