Hole-in-the-Ground and Snow

An annual frustration is trying to determine how much snow is still left on a higher elevation trail before I try to ride it. This was particularly important this week as I have planned a group BONC/FATRAC ride for Hole-in-the-Ground Trail near Donner Summit. I heard so many conflicting reports that I decided, screw it... I would go see for myself. So I did a very fun solo ride on HITG on Tuesday 7/18.

The verdict? I found some small patches of snow, but 99% of the trail completely rideable. In fact, it is primo right now, as the hordes have not yet beaten it to a dusty, rutted mess. So I hope you can join us for this event.

FYI, I try to keep track of snow conditions on the BONC trail guide webpage.
