I made it out for an evening snow ride as people were commenting on the fat tires and XC skiers having the snow compacted on some of the trails. It was slow going but not too bad. The bad part was where the snow was 6" or so deep the track was narrower and I kept getting stopped sinking on the edges. Where the snow was about 4" there was a wider track bedded in, and when I did get a tire off to the side I could keep going. Definitely worked me over for the short ride I got in before my knee didn't want to put enough power down.

I love evening snow rides. We have a favorite local trail that gets packed down by hikers during the day. Temps here still are freezing in the evening making trails hard. In a few weeks it will be too soft

We had another snow, but it was more of a heavy and wet one. The guys who also XC ski the trails said it was too much even for that. Mayne I can find some bargain snow shoes and a sled to drag a little weight in and great a semi-groomed trail.
