Mountain Biking in the Snow: Perfect Temps, Horrible Conditions

I've written about Mountain Biking in the Snow before, but ran into some un-fun conditions this weekend worth noting!
Me in happier snow days

Temps were perfect, snow was a few days old (and had been groomed/packed) so I figured this weekend was going to be really great.

It was not.

Why?  Under the powdery not-very-grippy snow was a layer of ice.  It was pretty awful... couldn't stay upright even, I tried for a few minutes and quickly realized it wasn't happening.

Seems there have been too many thaw/freeze cycles.

Abandoned for the gravel roads.  Gots muddy.
