    As grippy as a grippy thing covered in sticky stuff - that's how good packed snow is.

    Untill it turns to sheet ice then you're fcuked

    It's pretty mint! Was at laggan yesterday in the snow, car park was empty and the shop was shut (unsurprisingly!) Found a new game called hunt the trail ha ha! Seriously though, it was brilliant, I was shocked at how much grip you actually get on snow. Upper red involved a bit of hike-a-bike but the lower Red was perfect. Can't wait to get out on the white stuff again.
