Quartz Creek UPDATE Nov 16
I was impressed at how many trucks were already in the parking area by 9:30am. People are pumped and getting at it hard already. nice to see.
trail in was smooth from the parking lots to about 1/2 way. then it got rough! wups are never what you remember about last seasons rides, but they can shake your memory around in a few seconds… “oh ya, i hate wups!”
It was snowing lightly all day, but it was warm and the snow was a little heavy. There also seemed to be more snow down in the medow areas that up high. I think there has been a lot of wind and in some spots you can kick the snow with your boot and find the ground.. but regardless, people were still trying to climb everything.. and i didn’t see anyone get towed out from smacking a rock. Good news!
As for the official word, Some say it’s ON! some say not yet. I like to think it’s a dimmer switch thats kinda setting a 75% “make a girl look hot” light to the area.. But the forcast looks wet coming up,
so the ugly lights could be turned on MAX at any time.. Watch out!!
