Trail was fine today at noon. I had studded 26 ers and saw two other riders. 90% ice and snow the rest was frozen or nearly frozen. Fun.

A friend snowshoed the Lakeview trail yesterday. Might be decent to hit with a fatbike. Gonna check it out this weekend.

Rode up to the Shark Club and back. Lots of foot traffic. Someone pulled their kid on a sled through the trail which was nice. On the way back a few of this hills I had to walk up, very slippery along the lake. Very bumpy conditions.

It's been fun skiing here. Lot's of fat bike tracks on Lakeview and a few on Riverview. Both trails are clear and the tread is almost all packed snow instead of ice.

Lakeview is 99% ice free, frozen dirt and leaves. Very fun as long as it's frozen. After a thaw it might be messy for a couple days but only in certain places.
This trail drys so fast a little wind would really help the wet spots dry quickly. It got dark before I could check out Riverview but it's probably very similar.

Can confirm yesterday was fast and fun. Only the lot was frozen and maybe 1 or 2 tiny sections on the side of the trail. That was around 5pm. I simply went down and back and it felt good to ride on some dirt instead of the trainer.

Stopped by the trail head at the Yacht Club to have a look and was greeted with frozen ground and thawed wet top layer covered in leaves slid right onto my bum. Stuck to the pavement today. Needs a little more time but looked way closer than Maybury. Hopefully doesn't get too rutted up this weekend.

I skied the east half of Lakeview yesterday. There was evidence of only foot traffic at the time. I broke trail in some spots. Not a single fat bike track but hopefully I initiated the grooming that will make it good for riding.

Trail was sweet yesterday but a bit muddy near the end. Fat and plus tires preferred to minimize impact. STAY ON THE TRAIL AND DON'T CUT TRAIL!!!

Why are you YELLING!!! to stay on and don't cut trail? No mud on Lakeview east to west. Looks great no pizza cutters. Didn't ride the one-way west to east or Riverview.

I rode Lakeview both directions yesterday, it's dry from end to end. It's a little softer than usual but no mud.

I just got back from riding Lakeview-it is almost perfect! Get some now before the weather gets here...
