    I have not, but the current report on the Dirty Fingers/thegorgeismygym trail conditions page is that it is still covered in snow. I've never ridden that trail but it is on my list for mid-July (a Saturday when the family is out of town and I can take a whole day for myself).

    I heard from a gentleman that Ape Canyon is still covered two or three miles from the top.

    This trip report seems to indicate there is some snow just before the Plains of Abraham.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    I backpacked Lewis River 2 weeks ago. Mostly dry. Wet in a few spots that are usually wet until late summer. It would have been perfect for riding. Unless we get lots of rain in the next couple days, I think you'll be in good shape this weekend.

    Ah cool! I've always wanted to backpack Lewis River. Just seems like an ideal 2 day backpack or longer if exploring. Definitely a beautiful area, gonna try & make it happen this fall. Anyway thanks for the trail beta, that actually really helps me out.
