    Rain?

    How do the trails around SLC hold up to rain? Can’t find trail status ‘cept MTB project.

    As you might imagine, it depends on the trail and how much rain. Some parts of corner canyon tend to get soft (the south side imo) and some stay fine (the north side). You can ride the quarry trail in a driving rain and it is fine (and alot of fun). The stuff up higher in LCC, BCC, and PC depend on the trail, but can be fine. A little bit of rain actually makes many trails better the next day. Maybe post the specific trail you are looking at and we can let you know what our experience is with it.

    Looks like Friday may be hit and miss with the rain in the AM.
    Not as familiar with bobsled as other spots, but I know it can get sloppy. Depending on how much time you have, but I would do a wasatch crest run on Friday afternoon, or something else up higher in PC. If it ends up raining all day, Saturday you can catch a shuttle from PC and run the wasatch crest and back to PC. Or climb up from PC base to the crest and back down any number of ways.

    I could definitely be wrong, but Friday looks like it could be a total wash for stuff up high in the mountains. They are talking about snow levels Thu->Fri at 8K feet.
    Trails are tacky now, but with heavy rain/snow I thinking staying off them on Friday is probably likely. The trails have already absorbed a good bit of moisture so additional rain will likely result in actual mud.
    Stuff in the valley will probably dry out faster.
