Weather/course conditions will be a factor in this year’s event once again. After snowing an inch/hour for several hours Monday evening, sleet & freezing rain followed, with an all day rain yesterday. This photo is on the Blue Trail about Tuesday morning:
After the rain yesterday, the 4 or 5 inches of snow is down to a couple inches or so with a frozen crust. The picture of the trail hasn't changed much today except the icy coating on the trees is gone.
