Trail report Jan 21

The trails are mostly ride-able but slow. They are groomed but the snow is fluffy with a bit of drifting. This makes cornering problematic at best. If getting outside is your goal and don’t mind walking a bit and making a few snow angels then the trails are OK. Allow yourself double the usual time to ride.
Studs are not required but the fluffy drifting snow makes riding more difficult than the ice it replaced. Skinny tires have no chance.
The thaw freeze cycle on Wednesday should make the trails a lot better.
Home loop is more difficult than Island Hooper.
Cross country skiing and snowshoeing seems like the logical choice. The trails are perfect for this.
