I rode Big Creek this afternoon, and it is just fine to about a 1/2 mile below Schneider Creek. There it gets thin. But you can make it all the way to the parking lot, and just go over a couple of very small bare spots. Keep to the left for about the first mile, as the 4X4’s have made a mess of the right side. There is not enough snow to groom, so it will be bumpy, but it is an alternative when the upper lot fills.
According to Jeff Iversen, the upper lot is about half full right now.
