    Pinehill

    Does anyone now if Pinehill in Rutland is ridable without studs? I want to ride this weekend, but haven't put the studs on yet...thanks

    No studs needed. No snow, no ice.
    It's a little muddy today after last nights rain, but the forecast looks good for the weekend (the sun's out now) and it should dry out pretty quick.

    I spoke a little soon.

    After the rain and freeze/thaw cycles weve been getting, pine hill trails have become a muddy mess. I went out today and found 1-3" of sticky peanut butter over 95% of the trails.

    Please give our trails some time to recover and cross us off your list of rideable places until further notice. The few bikes that have come through managed to churn up an awful mess. I'll keep you informed. We just need some cold weather or some sunny days.

    PHP trails are currently Hardpack snow, a little mud and a little slush. Totally rideable without studs. There's no ice (yet), but be careful on the bridges.

    Bump.

    What has the freeze-thaw cycle done to the trails? How are things shaping up for evening riding next week? We'll be pushing 60 nearly every day and we'll have the daylight at the end of the work day due to the time change, but do things need some time to set up?

    Pine Hill is asking riders to NOT ride if temp is above 32 degrees...the trails have taken a real beating.

    Pine hill has been reopened. It was fairly dry all over, with a little mud here and there. Shimmer trail is still goopy, so I'd avoid it for a few more days.

    Next week is looking pretty awesome.

    Pinehill was excellent today. No mud or rough spots that I saw. Conditions should only get better looking at the long range forecast.
