    Ashland, Spring Thaw

    Is there a Clyde class? or is it only done by age group.

    Snow Levels

    Anybody know how much snow is on the course right now? I'm curious to know if there is a chance this race will be cancelled due to snow on the course.
    2 wheels == True

    I've seen other posts saying that it's clear, but I've yet to be up there myself this season.

    It is clear up to Toothpick, but I haven't made the ride up to 4-corners yet. I tried to drive up to 4-corners to get some DH runs in, but there was too much snow on the road for my Subie . . . I was about a 1/2 mile shy of the turn-off to 4-corners. The beginner XC course is clear of all snow and is super fast, well the downhill at least.

    As of last week, a co-worker tried to ride the expert loop, but had to stop at the top because of snow on the 10 mile cross-over to 4-corners. There is lots of shade on the cross-over and it doesn't look like it is suppose to warm up all that much over the next week.

    Loop road is clear all the way to 4 corners if you want to ride it. i did it a couple of weeks ago and it was fine. As for the other side, it sees a lot more shade so im sure it still has a lot of snow. But i cant say for sure.

    My co-worker tried to ride the cross-over from 4-corners to Horn Gap yesterday and ran into patched snow fields that were about six inches deep. He said he pushed through it for about a 1/2 mile, but he didn't want to have a hike-a-bike day so he turned around.

    Sounds like a few more weeks before it is clear. My slow climbing a$$ could use a few more weeks if they did postpone it . . .
