Some snow still remains on the top trails, but going fast. 
I raked and cut multiple trees. I was also able to fix water crossings and repair brake bumps also. Sunrise is not rideable yet, but the trails below are melted out, but need love, numerous big trees left to cut off the trail.

Lower elevation trails are open! No Snow!
Right now you can ride North Yuba, Fiddle Creek, Hall's Ranch, Bullard's Bar and the Divide trails. The trails are free from snow and conditions are awesome from the winter moisture.

The top part of the mountain currently remains under a blanket of snow from recent spring storms, however we do expect to get an earlier start than last season. The shop will remain
open in May and the shuttles will start as soon as the road is plowed to Packer Lake, sometime
in early to mid-May.

To kick-off the spring riding season, Downieville Outfitters will be hosting a volunteer Trail Day
on the first weekend in May. The objective will be the cleanup and repair of the local Downieville trail system. Call e-mail or follow us on Facebook for more information.

Come to prove yourself, or just come to have fun.
July 30 - August 2, 2015

I have never heard of mountain bike only trails here.  Which of the trails are mountain bike only?

If there are MTB only trails that would make sense given the quotes came from the local bicycle shop.  Unless they started running shuttles for dirtbikes.

I love Lagers.  I grew up on lagers.  Budweiser was my standard go-to beer.  The 1st time I had Bud from a keg I thought it was the best beer I ever tasted.  I got the chance to tour the Budweiser plant in Fairfield, California and tasted fresh beer in the clearing tanks, before it's pasteurized for packaging in the cans.  It was AMAZING!  Completely different than the swill you buy at the store.
 
Lagers are affectionate referred to my "Jack in the Box" beer.  When I was in High School we had this burger joint that stayed open till 2 am on the weekend.  On an early Saturday morning that place was packed.  There would be 100 kids hanging out in the parking lot.  It was a who's who in my area growing up.  I enjoyed those years and we drank a lot of beer & malt liquor in front of that burger joint.  Lagers were my favorite.  To this day, if I refer to a beer as my "Jack in the Box" beer, you know it's good.
 
The 1st time I ever had a "Craft" brew was at a buddys wedding.  He had Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale in a keg.  I spent the entire reception hanging out around that keg.  They had to cart me home in a wheelbarrow.  :smirk:
 
Ever see the movie American Graffiti?  I'm not that old, but you get the idea.
 
P.S.  How's the knee Ossi?  Did they operate yet?  Rehab?  :confused:
 
P.S.S.  GW ain't gonna lead.  :D
