Should be fine. Ski area was great yesterday and I'm sure the extra day helped at the game area. I'm heading over there to ride right now myself.

Downed tree just past the switchback climb on section 2. Already a little trail around it, not that big of a deal.

For sure. It was snowing during my ride but we didn't get much. Could actually use a little rain, getting kind of dusty / sandy.

Rode this for the first time two days ago: trail was fast and tacky for the most part. Probably rode it faster than I should have, but it was so much fun.

Just curious, what's considered a decent lap time?

30 minutes is a nice round number to shoot for. Some can do it faster certainly, but not many. Just don't run anyone off the trail trying! :wink:

37 minutes is not a bad time for SGA. I guarantee you are faster than the majority of mountain bikers out there.
