    Current Mt Fromme Trail Conditions?

    How are the trails looking at Mt. Fromme? I'm coming up from Washington this weekend, never have ridden there but heard many are rideable in the winter. Any recommendations for trails in the North Vancouver area would be awesome!

    Monster rainfall this week and into Saturday, the trails are going to be very wet. Bring your grippiest tires for the wood. This Pineapple Express likely hasn't dumped much snow down low, but I seem to remember seeing a trail day on Espresso was cancelled because of snow so that would be between the 3rd and 5th switchback (1500-1700' elevation).

    Trails are rivers at the moment. Snow is lower on Fromme this winter than usual. It's dumping rain and riding in these conditions is extremely damaging to the trails. Plan your winter riding up here when there is a nice high pressure system over the area.

    this is a little guide to winter shore trails; 52 Winter Trails - NSMB.com Mountain Bike Reviews, News, Photo and Video
    Snow line is around 5th switch from what i've heard from a buddy who was riding last weekend. Pipeline, floppy bunny, natural high might be good ones i guess, lot's of rock.
    but the next little while is looking super wet, riding may not be the best idea. 50mm of rain thurs/fri/sat.

    nsmb.com is a pretty reliable source of info for conditions. There are whole threads dedicated to each area/mountain.

    It's going to be damp with slick roots, woodwork and rockwork until some sun gets down onto the trails (A description that might apply for 150-200 days/year). It's only forecast for 13-14C at sea level today, so it will stay cool in the woods on the mountains all day, that slows the drying of surfaces. It's also likely to get showers through the morning. But it's supposed to be rainier on Sunday so today is the best day of the weekend.

    I walked around friday and cut out blowdown. It rained 20mm down low and 30-40mm higher.

    But the ground was so dry it sucked up moisture. The roots will be wet and slippery but the more maintained Nsmba trails will be good to go
