Comments: Avalon, Field, Wiley, Tom
Trail was free of snow for about 3/4 of a mile. The trail up to Avalon/Field was in OK shape. A bit soft and narrow but ok in spikes. The trail over to Wiley was more challenging, narrow monorail and soft snow with many trees down to step over and duck under. Trail over to Tom was a bit better but still soft and norrow monorail. Up to Tom was similar with a couple of icy sections. Going down from Tom theonirail was narrow and getting very soft with the afternoon warmth. Lots of sliding off to the side and hard to control speed due to the lack of traction even in spikes.
