If any of you are tired of the icy trails around town come out Chickaloon way and enjoy "real" winter riding. Danzante, Kathi M and I road over to Permanente from the cabin and up Permanente almost to the end. Great ride with 1-1 1/2" of new snow over pack. Sweet ride if you don't mind a little climb or two. We rode all the ice we couldn't last weekend. This new snow for some unknown reason stuck tight to the ice and packed trail. Haven't been there but I suspect King River would be good too after you get past the ice at the bottom.
