    Barn Burner course conditions in March

    I'll be in Phoenix the second week in March, and I was hoping to check out the Barn Burner course on my drive home. Any chance the course will be rideable in mid-March?

    this place is about the same elevation and location -- https://www.arizonanordicvillage.com...illage-webcam/

    just check out this webcam to see if there is still snow on the ground... that should tell you what the conditions will be like.. if this date if after a major thaw, it will be sloppy of course... but likely rideable

    Even if the course is bike-rideable, you will likely have to ride to the course from paved roads. I would say there is a 95% chance that the forest roads that access the area from pavement will be closed to vehicles. Not a deal-breaker, but it adds a few extra miles.

    Thanks everyone. I'm hoping to race in September, and this will be my only chance to preview the course.
