How's the trail conditions at Yankee? Typical summer sandy beach flip flop friendly?

Hit Yankee Saturday, and the trail was in great shape. No obstructions and fast. Late summer sand was firmed up. Really was surprised at the door mat climb reroute - loved it!

Was snowing pretty hard out there today! Started out fine but by the end it was pretty slippery. I ran into one guy out there with a saw clearing. I also stopped a few times to remove some of the larger stuff. Still a bunch of debris out there. Most might be covered by snow now too. Fat bikes would probably have blast out there.

Rode yesterday. Things are great out there. Some stuff down but conditions are great for December!

Anyone know the conditions? Is there snow on the ground out there? Was hoping to get in a ride tomorrow afternoon.

Rode Yankee this afternoon after Custer. You folks are right - this trail drains exceptionally well. There was a dusting of snow and a light misty drizzle but there was no mud at all.

No trail obstructions either. Good to go.
