It's been raining pretty hard in the general area today. I'd personally give it until Thursday.

Trail was a1 this morning at nine. Things were starting to get soft by 10:30 as temps went up. Crazy amount of rutting in the lower areas, but all rideable.

The general rule is that the chapter provides tools, but if you have your own / preferred tools, feel free to bring them. Just don't feel obligated to bring tools if you're wanting to pitch in.

For most of us we showed up at our first few trail days with no tools, then maybe brought some normal house-type stuff... Then as we got more involved we ended up with our own specialized tools. (For example, I have my own Pulaski and Rogue Hoe, the two specific models that I prefer.)

If you ride into the park, you can get away with being in the park a bit past closing time.

The ranger / police are mostly concerned about not having to herd cars out of the park when
they need to get the gate locked and would like to get home to their families / other life.

I've been in the park on bicycle near closing time where the rangers have ask if I am parked
somewhere or rode in. I've even suggest to them that they go ahead and lock the gate
and I will just lift my bicycle over on the way out.

I imagine if it were a regular thing on my part or amongst other park users,
it could end up being perceived as a problem by the park authorities.

Stony was in excellent shape this evening (much better than expected). Dry and firm everywhere except for a couple of small puddles in the pines just before the long S shaped bridge. No trees down or obstructions.

Did not ride the 2 track in the NW corner.

Weather forecast tonight looks like most of the snow will stay south as well.

Yeah, weird. FYI, there is a tree down in the Pines next to the second log pile, I was alone and did not attempt moving it.

Is biking allowed now in Stoney since there is no snow for cross country skiing? Anybody been out there?

I haven't been there, but I personally would go ride there today without concern about conflict. Anyone skiing now must hate their skis.

Stony was in pretty good condition for biking today. It's all ridable with patches of snow covered ice. No traction issues, rode all log piles and even the skinny board in the pines. Saw a whole range of bikes from standard to fat. There is zero conflict with skiers, as it is 65% bare trail. Roller Coaster is good to go, though a bit more snow/ice cover in the couple of low parts about half-way. Pines is great.

A little bit cold, but I suspect it will be fine to ride until Tuesday afternoon when it warms up. Just watch the speed on the downhills.

Tried to get the fatbike out onto the trails today, but they are pretty much a sheet of ice. Probably ok for studs, but singletrack, perimeter, and trolley trails all ice. Ended up just riding around the lake a couple times.
