Tried the skinny this morning before temps rose above 32. Let psi down to maybe 18 - 20 and then it rode kinda ok. But it was tough sledding for a 29er. It was a *beep* of a 30 minute workout (that was good in itself) Now with the temps above 40 don't ride the trail perhaps maybe kinda unless you have a real fattie or double wide.
I only rode a few feet of the trail then bailed to ride the pavement, but that bit the bag for a skinny. The trail itself will be nice once it gets cold again, as it is about one foot wide where the traffic has tamped it down.
My accu-trail prediction (isn't that an oxy moron?) is the snow level will go down this weekend, perhaps an inch from where it is now at about 5 inches, and then cool off a bit to make the trial great for riding whether fattie or possibly studs. Hopefully it will ice over and the studs will make it a nice ride next week with lights and all kinds of fancy winter riding gear.
Hope is not a good strategy.
