Any news on trail conditions? Are we looking at late April, or is it ready for this weekend?

I rode the shortcut starting around 7AM yesterday, Sun April 6th, while the trail was frozen. I saw about 40% of the trail surface was covered by snow turned to ice. It was the best condition for my studded skinnies. I wouldn't ride this weekend unless it freezes again. I attach a photo I took at the Silver Hill Rd. crossing at the very beginning. Image

Thanks for the heads up. I'm down in Toledo, looks like things are thawing a lot quicker down here. Guess we still have a little more time yet. I totally did not expect there to still be snow in the woods. Glad I didn't jump the gun.

We (Poto stewards and MDNR) are declaring Poto open for bidness. Some north facing slopes are a little greasy, but very minimal. Still avoid Gosling. Avoid after hard rain until we are further along.

Poto was prime today, no issues on Gosling. Some of the best conditions I can remember.
