    Hello all
    Has anyone been down to the Green Mountain area in Vermont? Thinking about going in early April? Wondering about weather and trail conditions.

    There will be snow and ice at elevations and under dense tree canopy, I think early April is too early. Even Virginia's elevated passes, that are much further south, were snow/iced-in during first week of April when I rode there...

    If you want to ride in early April or late March you have to head south and stay low. Maybe do the TET or Hatfield area

    Even if you can get through the snow and ice on the trails, the surface would be so wet, your bike will just sink down. The resulting ruts will damage the trails for the season. You should probably wait or head way south, like GQ said...
