anyone know if husky is a slop fest yet or still pretty good?

No experience of husky but Moose side was good yesterday. Can't imagine it'd be terrible to be honest. By yesterday afternoon parts of 7-27 already looked summer dry again despite the preceding rain....

Heard from the guys that rode Husky Saturday afternoon that it was pretty good except for the last slope on pistelero which was a slippery slimy descent.

Conditions on Husky were primo tonight - we rode Shoulda and Side Trax. Shoulda was late season rough (so not very nice but not unexpected either). Side Trax was in very good condition, even a little dusty if you stayed too close to the other guys in your group (I on the other hand rode it in the dark down by myself, every one else got away pretty quick).

Friday's snow might change everything, so you might want to bring your fat bike instead.

I am unfortunately without a fatbike. but i guess i'll keep an eye open on the weather, really itchin to get a few more rides in before the season ends. was also considering doing a run out to baseline as an alternative but cant find any condition reports.

Blama, snow today, so unless you have a fat bike, your season IS over!

That might be a little dramatic. Last year the snow melted and I was back on skinny tires within 2 weeks.

That doesn’t help the guy that’s in town for only a weekend but still.

ive kind of come to accept this now. baseline is getting rain today so i guess its local riding for me. edmonton seems to be the only dry spot this weekend!

Just being honest about the conditions! Bragg Creek & Moose are at the foot of the Rockies! Once the snow flies it usually sticks around or it rains! JMHO

I think December 2018 - Jan 2019 there were more dirt riding days than that seasons September and October. Last December was rad too.


Beauty fall this year for sure!

We had dusty, dry, Jean Guy laps into December last year. Maybe the season is over, but I’m not ready to give up yet.
