    It was pretty good yesterday. Didn't ride the whole thing, but there isn't any snow between Spiro and Daly.
    I only attempt to change the world in the appropriate World-Changing venues and forums.

    Rode pretty much the same thing as chuky yesterday morning before the rain. Dry as a bone. Turned around and rode back towards Spiro and dropped down CMG (Crescent Mine Grade) which was pretty much hero dirt the whole way down until where the trail forks. Plus, the weeds haven't had a chance to grow so you have a clean view of the single track on the entire upper section.
    After the fork, things got a little dusty-typical summer PC trail conditions.
    Park City has the service road closed off pretty good now before the equestrian park next to the parking lot so you have to climb up to the adjacent lift off to the left and do a bit of route finding back down to the parking lot. Every line from the lift down that open field to the parking lot was all rutted out but fortunately it's only the length of a football field long so no big deal.

    PS, some people were coming over from Deer Valley along Mid-Mountain and said there were quite a few large snow patches that were unrideable. But no downed trees. Don't know how accurate that is but from what we could see and from years past, the closer you get to DV along the Mid-Mountain the more the trail is shadded and seems to take a bit longer to dry out.

    Rode it today. Based on bad info I thought from PCMR over to Deer Valley would be cool but it's quite wet and there are about a 1/2 dozen unrideable snow crossings and a couple small river crossings. Needs even a week or two hate to say as some are a couple feet thick. But it is rideable, just use caution and care, there were quite a few people riding it. You will be quite muddy as we were, before the rain even hit hard. Correct all the trees have been cleared out...

    From the PCMR/DV border & north it is in great shape with just a couple little also sensitive snow crossings so again use caution but it's 95% there. I hear from good reliable sources that all the way to the Can isn't too bad either...

    Most of Deer Valley is in great shape, Deer Crest, Spin Cycle, all in great nearly perfect shape as well..

    Hope it helps...

    Good to Go

    Today it was clear and dry from PC to Canyons via Spiro -> MM - > Ambush. Nice loop with only a couple miles on the road back to PC.

    FWIW today: Four Point/Deer Crest is pretty much dry except one, really small spot of snow up close to the top of Four Point where it crosses a ski run.
    Thursday evening: John's 99 off of Mid Mountain (coming from Spiro) had a couple of downed trees. One is a hanger and if your minature, you could probably ride under it. The second tree takes a bit of finesse to climb over. After you come out to the first service road and have to take a right back up said service road, it's pretty clear. Where it crosses the stream/creek it's pretty washed out and there's still quite a bit of water running down it. Besides numerous, rideable downed branches, it's good all the way over to Empire Link. Just watch those sticks as there's lots of them.
