6 of us rode on Sunday afternoon, 2 on fatbikes, 4 on normal tires. As stated above, North and West loops were in great shape due to lots of past traffic. There were a few crusty ice spots on West, but they didn't seem to slow any of us down. We attempted the Grinder too, but the snow was pretty deep - and after the cutout to Hess Rd (about a mile in), there were no tracks at all. 3 of us (including the 2 fatbikes) continued on until the 7 mile exit, and it was a slow slog. At least there are tracks now!

2 of us rode Grubers first thing Sat morning. Advantage of a trail ridden by so few people - no ice, crunchy snow with lots of traction. Wasn't sure how good it would be and was overjoyed at how near perfect the crust was in places.
A couple of people had ridden the first 7 miles to the cutoff recently (last night?), Meadows loop was the trickiest with ice under a thin snow layer, Orchard loop was untouched and great fun breaking new tracks.
Given the weather it probably won't last to Sunday but I would definitely say this trail should be on the list when everywhere else is iced over and unridable

Oh and there's a couple of sizable trees (too big for my hand saw) down about 6 miles in.

North, West and Tech all clear except for the waist high bugger about a mile into west. Will at least need a hand saw or two people to move.

Spun a few laps around the north loop yesterday. Looks like 4-5 sets of tracks through there. The trail is great. I didn't ride West loop due to time but it has also been ridden and XC skiied on. Better get
