Poto trail conditions update:
I went out tonight and cleared some junk off the trail up by Patterson Lk. and then went over to Silver Lk. and hiked the Silver Lk. trail.
The trail was totally snowcovered, hardpacked, with no glare ice. There were two sets of tire tracks from this evening. looked like non snowbike, without studs.
It looked like it would be very good riding with or without studded tires. Skiing would be fast, most of the roots and rocks are still covered.
If we get an inch or so of snow, skiing or biking should both be good this weekend.
The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for.
