Raining hard, not looking good, getting real sloppy. As for getting a new race trail I would have to agree with you, they should cut out a new trail something less steep that the kids can learn on and don't struggle as much with.
Really fun today! Yes, some icy spots at the top, overall a beautiful day and lots of cover. Six inches of new snow over the last two days helped, but the big dump forecast will make it great on Friday!
