Mini Capitol Forest Enduro
Got out for a mini version of the Capitol Forest Enduro today. Yesterday's snowfall in the hills shut down the upper part of 30. I turned around with 3" of hard snow on the trail in the bermy section about a mile from the top. Justin and Co. were out with a chainsaw to remove the last tree from trail from the ice storm. First class. The brush cutting we did on Wednesday really opened up that section on 30. Beneath the 2+ feet of salal was a very cherry berm and a few lost lines. After 30 I took a run down the LLMT - kinda greasy and sketchy but fun. Final run on GL6 from the CFE start to the bottom of the lower clear cut. GL6 was in decent shape for Feb and rode fast. The CFE will be a great introduction to three very different and very fun Capitol Forest descents. 7 months to go.
