Should we ride the mtns when theres snow up high?

Recommended Posts

I got yelled at for posting pictures once for riding singletrack in Idaho when there was snow up high. Something about run off, melt, ruining trails. Etc

More of an issues when the thaw is on in the spring. Water trickling down the trail, dirt still soft. Rut. Northern shady exposures will always have snow though, so at some point your gonna ride it.

As long as the trail is legally open it’s fair game. Idaho does close stuff around November in some places. Everything is currently open. It’s also the best time of year to ride!

Put a sand paddle on the rear with ice racing spikes (bonus points if you screw snowmobile cleats into it), a 75 tooth rear sprocket and hammer that clutch like there is no tomorrow.

Is that nonsense really necessary?
