    West Branch conditions?

    I was thinking about going up there Saturday but wasn't sure what shape its in or if there would be issues with hunters. Looks like its gonna be sub freezing temps between now & then so Id assume mud wouldn't be a problem
    Is there snow on the ground there?

    Good question Jeff - I was wondering the same.

    Noticed as I went about my day yesterday that there was quite a bit of unfrozen mud around still, so I'd guess it's not good now. Temps may top freezing Thurs & Fri, but stay below freezing from Fri night on past the end of the weekend. How long will it take the ground to freeze? I'm thinking not too long, since there's no snow cover. I'm hoping that by Sunday afternoon it'll be okay.

    Hunting closures at WB are done for this season. That's not to say that they're not out there - but the trail isn't closed.

    Re: West Branch conditions?

    Thanks Steve. I did 10 miles at Moraine today. It was fine. Ground was frozen solid but there was brutal hoar frost in the non-rocky singletrack. It was like pedaling through 2" of Captain Crunch.

    The new Satori is a great rock crawler. I had Moraine & West Branch in mind when I built it. I cleaned some stuff I've never cleaned before and finally got the balls to ride some of the bigger features. Good times.
