I bet the snow will be nearly gone on the lower part of the trail by then

Still some snow

Me a few other rigs were up there Saturday there wasn't too much snow on the way to the first crossing. We hit some sloppy stuff about half a mile before winch hill 1 by next weekend it will be pretty much all gone. The river was low we had no issues crossing at all.

I'd be interested in a day run if you go Sat. or Sunday. I'm the one with the TJ on 40's from the Rubicon last week. The one that works with your Step dad.

Went to first crossing today. Almost no snow to that point. Didnt cross because I was running solo but honestly didn't look that bad for 38's and larger. But then again I didn't actually test the waters ??

When you say huge drift I take it you were referring to committee reroute heading up to fordyce lake? I didn't make it out Saturday like I wanted. Memorial day for sure looks like as long as the creek stays down it should be fun.
