Ah! Thanks for noticing that. I really hope the replacement MMBA Forum (announced this week via Facebook) will work better.

Here's all the info: http://www.cramba.org/events/ay-cramba- ... -festival/

And yes, it's happening! February 4th with a fallback date of February 18th (in case of mud/rain/whatever), from noon to 5pm.

Great - thanks Steve!

Spreading the word (should have some folks from Ohio there) and hoping for a Snowmizer-type blizzard!

It's on! Postponing would have complicated things overall so we were only going to delay for rain/mud. That won't be the case. It was looking like frozen dirt, but now there's snow.

This was solely because of the conditions that day. Had we had another inch of snow or slightly warmer temps (making the whole thing softer) non-fatbikes wouldn't have been good.

Just happened to hit a very narrow window of good, hard-pack on the trail for the last two days. After today it won't be so nice.
