Now, admittedly, not all the trails looked like this. Some were showing thinner snow, a few open spots popping through, and I'm sure there will be a shade more than what I saw, but for the most part, the trails could handle a little heat, as long as it doesnt rain. The plan to run south out of Silver Bay isn't gonna work, so no long loop this time around for the Brisk Pace ride. The entire Sunday afternoon ride,
I was thinking about how the trails would hold up over this next week. Temps in the mid 20's overnight certainly helps... but this might be the last week to ride if those rains next week show up.
Likely a lot of the single track will have bent over saplings. Have a friend in Hoyt Lakes that says they got a heavy 6" and little to no rain. I would assume the further away from the lake the more snow and less rain.
Just remember guys, if you are going to venture on trails, they had practically NOTHING before this little snow storm. I was there a week ago today, and anything south of Lutsen was probably all but bare ground before last night.
Was hoping Lutsen and north might have a chance with this freshen up IF they didn't get rain ahead of it. It appeared on radar they did not get rain, but not sure. Can anybody confirm? Might try a blast from Lutsen to Grand Portage Friday if its doable.
