I was there last night (Sunday) and everything that is a blue and up I rode and it was all money (didn't do Gatorback, but Moonscape was near perfect, even the initial climb/descent was makeable on the SS).
Add something cool to your party or function...have a cigar roller!   www.CigarCreations.com

I rode there Tuesday also and the trails were in great shape. We will start working on Gatorback soon and start repairing All the erosion.

We rode pretty much all the trails TH and S....everything was in pristine condition.  Been a while since I've seen them all in this condition.  Art and the others have done a great job. 

Not sure how North Creek could be described as "blowing goats".  Sure it had a couple sandy spots but otherwise it was in great shape and was flowing pretty fast.

813 Racing has  adopted North Creek and they started working on some of the sandy spots today. That means they went out there with shovels and took the sand off the trail.
Thanks guys <3 <3
