IIRC there was a huge rotten one in Disney on the first uphill switch back. The other was in Hairpin alley spincycle area
Don't worry. It's all downhill from here.

That is correct, I think there may be 2 in the spincycle area.

Yesterday I stopped to check the trailhead about 430 pm
There was still an inch or so of slushy water mix. Mostly slush.
Probably didn't all melt before we went sub 32f at about 9pm so I'd imagine the trail will be covered with mostly frozen slush tonight.
Please avoid riding if the slush/trail is not firm
Thanks

2/15/19 PM: Single track has lots of ice, although I rolled through a few sections on 4.8's at very low pressure, and very slowly over the many icy stretches, including some frozen ice ruts. Kevin's Twisties was so icy I abandoned that section quickly.

Awesome! Finally a good use for studs!
Hope is not a good strategy.

Road Monday afternoon 2/25
Road through a few sections
Recent high winds brought down a lot of debris I picked up some and rode over some
Lots of ice under about half to an inch of snow
Ride with caution and help clean up the trail if you can spare a few minutes
Thanks!!

It was in great shape this morning, probably would have been good up until noon. I think there will be a few mud baths as things continue to thaw cycle before drying out but I think 70% is already in great shape, even if it were to thaw. There were a few frozen ruts that could be tricky on skinny tires but while it's frozen, 100% rideable on skinnies.

I did not get out to the back section but cleared up most of the front sections, I think up to marker 11.

Trail is 99% dry. Only one soupy spot, could easily be fixed or re routed in the future if needed imo
