Me and my parents went riding last season between Dec 24th and January 1st in the twin lakes area. We were extremely lucky to have the snow, b/c basically they had only about 2 in. of snow 2 days before, and got about 14-15 in. the night before we came. Sorry...most of these pictures are of scenery.

After 3 days of riding on the trails, traffic became heavy the day after christmas and conditions went from near excellent in most areas to maybe fair, so we did some off trail exploration the rest of the 5 days of our stay.

We where treated to seens like this... near pike lake south of Krupps...

lol i gotta say, those days before christmas, the trails where the best they've ever been during that time period, but, the base was definitely not really good. Even tho the snow that fell was really wet, the base wasn't thick, and once all the sledders came after christmas, thats when we had to hit the off trail.
