    The Magic Mary is a great winter tire in the PNW.
    Which 29"x2.5ish version would you run for winter riding around Seattle in the casing that is close to Maxxis EXO? For a front tire specifically.

    I ran the Addix Soft snakeskin but looks like they've changed their casing branding to "super trail" and "super gravity" so at this point who knows. The "soft" I thought provided ample wet traction and still held up pretty well, all the way through the winter and still good traction in May/June.

    I just put on my last snakeskin addix soft up front as well. That tire is discontinued and the new one is super trail which is ~200g heavier. Not sure what route I will go when this one wears out, possibly just suck up the weight increase. The michelin wild enduro front is a similar tread and closer to the 1000g mark so that is another option.

    Dirt in the PNWet

    Are you referring to the 29x2.4 or 2.6? This is in reference to Maxxis 2.5WT - it’s hard to know how sizes compare. What rear tire do you run that with?

    2.4 schwalbe is about the same as 2.5 maxxis. I am 2.4 both ends on both bikes. Might consider a 2.6 Reston the hard tail but that needs a wider rim IMO.

    Anyone know when new trails will open on Tiger? Super excited about both.

    - Looks like they have graded an extension to Crosshaul to connect to the bottom of OTG/NOTG.

    - The Summit-to-Iverson descent mentioned earlier.

    The Summit-Iverson trail is DNR built and i believe a machine built blue flow trail. As of a couple weeks ago there were a few bridges left to install. With the burn ban in effect most/all machine work on trails was basically shut down this whole summer so they would have only recently been able to use power tools and machines again. I would bet that trail opens within a month. Tough to say as EMBA wasnt involved so there is no "soft opening" and less gossip getting out. Getting riders on the tread to pack it in during fall is a helluva lot better than opening fresh tread to riders during sloppy winter and spring... especially on a machine built flow trail where its super easy and unwanted to rut-out the trail bed.

    i bet the crosshaul connector opens up within a month as well. That trail will make A LOT of people happy.

    Mostly just educated guessing based on experience and following this FB page (this and Lokuls Only are the only FB pages i ever look at). https://www.facebook.com/groups/tigerragingrivermtb/

    I am always happy to blowup new legal trails haha.

    Those are both going to be such great additions. Ever since I learned about that Crosshaul connector (a few years ago?) it's become my favorite route by far. Having a way back to Iverson from the top is fantastic as well. Tiger is really starting to get a mixture of trails suited for more varied skill levels which I think is really cool. I've been getting a long time ski friend who hasn't mtbed much out and it's been awesome to take him on some longer rides that aren't a constant techy beatdown the entire way.

    The rains are really picking up. It might mean the end to dry conditions but it will bring some balance back to the forests.

    Any conditions updates from our friends in Oregon? We have a week or so starting Oct 25, and looking for new trail. Umpquas? Waldo Lake too late? Hood River? Mendocino?

    Or just play it safe and go to St George again?
