Yankee is ready to ride, even on the dry side. We need rain. :lol:

Did 2 laps today at Yankee. In very good shape. Only a few spots of snow but you can ride around very easily. Leaves covering alittle but getting better as more peeps use.

I rode Yankee on Sunday morning and it was outstanding. No snow on the trail. Very grippy and tons of fun.

Sounding good! I am hoping to get out there on sunday morning or afternoon, depending on temps, for a ride! Only rode it once last year and had a blast.

Anyone going out today? Or been out recently? I was wondering if there were any updates on the condition of the trail.

I rode a couple laps today and the trail was in excellent shape.

By the look of things, the local trail crew performed an AMAZING job clearing all the damage from last weeks storm. I've never seen so much fresh sawing and clearing on a trail …..ever. They must have worked their tails off to clear all the blow downs. Props to everyone who cleared things up so the rest of us could ride it. It was well worth the 2 hr drive to ride Yankee Springs. I hope they have a tip jar at the time trial next month, as I intend to donate some $ for their great effort.

Thanks agin to those that put their time and sweat to clear the trail.
