    We rode Thanksgiving morning. It was wet, and a fair amount snowy, but not bad. The worst part, was all of the low hangers! The snow was pulling the tree limbs down very, very far.

    As soon as the temp goes above 30 it will get sloppy out there.

    went out today at 1. The conditions were actually extremely good. You do have to be careful but all in all you're not doing any damage to those trails unless you're absolutely ramming on the brakes.

    I think I only saw maybe half a dozen actual mud spots.
