    Recent Ape Canyon/Plains of Abraham conditions

    Has anyone ridden Ape Canyon/Plains of Abe since the big snow a week or so ago? I suspect that the trail is fine, since it is mainly less than 4500' and in the Mission Ridge area of Wenatchee Mountains up to 5800' is pretty clear. I'm looking to go on Thursday.

    Thanks for any recent info you can share.

    I have not ridden it, but I know a bunch of folks here rode it last weekend and said it was amazing. If I was around this weekend, I would definitely be doing it. Hopefully the weather will hold for the next two weeks so I can get it in this year. Not optimistic.

    There is a new washout at about 4.75 miles up from the start. You'll probably see where people have gone to the left and dropped in and back up the other side as you are making your way out. Other than that and a couple other areas with some new extra soft conditions it was an awesome ride - did the Full Moon on Friday last week.

    Should be Good Friday--probably last good day up there for awhile. Snow level drops to 3000' Sunday with 10"-20" expected.
