    Just got back from a ride in Dogtown. Had a chance to try studs for the first time. I'm pretty impressed. It made my ride much more fun and much less dangerous. It got a little crazy when the snow got above 4". I can't imagine riding in deeper snow that that.

    Last Friday I had a night ride and it began to snow. That was pretty cool with good lights.

    I did my ride this afternoon in 4-5 inches of fluff over ice. My 2.4's are floaty, but things get hairy when there's ice underneath. I'll be skiing tonight once the snow builds up and jumps can be built.

    Yeah, we went over to a local sledding hill and built a kicker. There are plenty of places to XC ski around here as well. By the end of this weekend, pretty much any bike trail will be ski-able and Sugarloaf should be prime for downhill ski runs.

    Have I ever shown you my Sugarloaf Tree run??/

    It's not a long shot-but it's steep and beautiful and holds snow like-well, like a well-protected north facing tree slop.

    I don't do many tree runs (cracked my jaw kissing a tree as a kid and developed a pathological fear), but I'd like to check it out. If it's not too icy or wet, today may be a good day for Sugarloaf runs
