    Pine Hill Park is still completely rideable.

    Still riding PHP. Trails are firm and fast before noon, but develop a little slop later in the day when the sun is out.
    Winter, bahhhh.

    A dusting. No impact on riding whatsoever. Although it is damn cold out there today.

    I'm posting this in the hopes of saving somebody the same fool's errand I was on today...While PHP was fantastic on Monday of this week i pushed my luck and went again today to find the trails to be truly a sheet of ice. Short of a massive warm up to get rid of the ice i fear PHP may be done for the season You couldn't even walk on the trails today..

    Studded tires, man! You don't know what you're missing.

    We are shut down in the MWV, too much snow (Not that there's a lot of it).

    Anyone? Bueller? All I hear is crickets chirping in here.

    Is anyone riding in Rutland right now or are they just having too much fun railing their GS skis on the awesome "packed powder" ski conditions?

    PHP is still 100% rideable.
    I went out yesterday when we were at 43 degrees and there were a few soft spots, but nothing terrible. I got in a good 2 hour ride!
    Temps today are in the low 30's and everything has hardened up quite a bit. No snow, no ice, pretty fast.

    Been riding several times/week, trying to go early to minimize damage to the trails as it warms up but still bare...lol, did find a bit of ice at intersection of 999 and Overlook last Sat..big hop-circle to stay on the bike.

    Php is fast and furious. Very few soft spots.
    I put in almost 2 hours today and look forward to Mon-Thurs next week as temps are looking to be in the low to high 30s.

    Thanks for the updates. A friend and I traveled 2.5 hours from the Concord, NH area to ride here to today. We have a little bit of snow and alot of ice on the trails. No sense in riding that when you can ride great untouched singletrack. I couldn't beleive how dry it was. My bike was covered in dust by the time we were done!
