A few of us walked the trails on saturday. South facing trails on the 200s looked almost ready to ride. The North facing trails such as 301 were a different story, there was still snow on the trail in some places and frost was evident. Some rain might help finish off the frost. Prepare for a late opening this year. Last year spoiled us with a March 15 opening, this year might be one of the latest openings. I recall opening on April 15 several times, I would guess with the rains this week, we could be looking at April 20 or so.
I believe next saturday is the first official trail day. Anyone recall where all the downed trees were? We got a few already on the south side. Once we get the trails cleared, the general consensus is that 301 needs some attention with deburming and such.
