Either way works, but I should have extra snowshoes (they just strap to your boots) available should we choose to organize something. Post up prior to doing anything and I'll do the same...

Interesting idea! I have a couple pairs of snowshoes myself and would definitely be up for heading out to Beverly this week to help get the trails ride-able (if they aren't already). Been riding around in the snow a lot but haven't made it out there. If anyone wants to meet this week, post up!

A lot of people have been out there already, some bike tread tracks but mostly hiking rather than shoeing since the snow is not that deep. The colder temps have hardened the snow so it is rideable but not without some effort in the bumpy looseness; also lots of trees down fyi. Have fun!
