    Batchelor's/Mt Holyole ok for riding ?

    Hello everyone. I moved up to VT this summer, and while the there are some
    excellent trails here, we've got the usual winter snowpack now, so my last attempt
    at riding (the day before this last wintry precip event) involved about a third riding,
    a third walking where it was too steep to find traction, and a third of mostly controlled
    sliding (i had a studded tire up front) on tracks made be fat bikes.

    Now to my question: I'm really itching to get some riding this week. Would it be worth it
    to take a drive down I-91 to Northampton area to ride Batchelor street/Earl's ?
    I checked the snowmap and current there's about an inch there, according to it. I could deal with
    a little more than that, maybe 2 or 3 inches at the most shouldn't be a major issue.

    Mainly I want to make sure there's no closure issues by the DCR, ,like bikes bikes being banned
    until spring or something like that.

    Any info al all would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    B Street was in great shape yesterday. Barely any snow. Not sure about Earls. Never a bike ban- only self imposed during mud season at riders' discretion. Go and enjoy!

    Sounds like ski season is in full force up by you. Enjoy it, sir - for the rest of us stuck down here in S. NE, where winter doesn't hit for real until February.
