Yes. Conditions are still excellent. I have not been on the flow trail since we got the "substantially complete" word from HV a few weeks ago. At that time, there was still some work to be done in the trees between the ski slopes. The tread had been excavated, but the outslope had not been worked on - spoils still blocked water run off on the downhill side. Not sure if they had gotten to that yet. Also, there are some seeps where the trail crosses Champange. They were thinking of in sloping that and putting in drains. Not sure if that was done yet.
Edit: Just watched the video. Yup, wet spots still on Champagne - left two mud spotches on the camera!

Are conditions still excellent? I am heading up this weekend and looking forward to riding EVL Sat, Sun and Mon (if no rain). Also, what is the status of the new flow trail at HV - is it done/open and anybody have a map of where you pick it up? Any info on these is appreciated. (also, I renewed my IMBA through WNYMBA because you guys do such a good job. Thanks)

Trails seemed to be in decent shape yesterday. A lot of damage in some areas due to riding when the trails were too soft. Rode the "Black Trail". First from the tower, and that was a tad sadistic. Then I rode it the other way and it was a lot easier. It looks like it has gotten little use and I didn't see anyone else on it.

Not a conditions post (breaking the rules, but oh well). Black trail is the replacement to the white trail . It starts at the tower at the same spot as the white trail starts. It actually ends on the same segment of trail where the white trail used to end on CCC road (the white trail now ends somewhere else). St. Patty's is the continuation of this trail across the CCC road. It continues on to Rocky's Run.
