|Overall or Weather notes||FRIDAY 1/24/2020: We received 5 inches of dry snow in Hayward last weekend, 8 inches in Cable, and over a foot at AshWaBay. Some of that new snow was plowed off the trails and the rest was incorporated into the base.|
We received several inches of fresh snow yesterday, and snow showers will likely continue through Saturday. Low tire pressures are recommended in fresh snow. We have had several days of warm weather, and forecasts predict warm days and nights continuing through the weekend. Grooming in this warm weather is not advised, but also not needed because the new snow is easily ridden in. The trails should continue to hold up unless the sun comes out. Users can expect some great riding but should be ready to exit the trail if it starts to break down.
