Unfortunately, I checked the weather forecast and temps will be around 52 on Saturday, but the Shawnee website says that it has about 85% of its trails open, which is 20 out of 23. My question is, what's it going to be like on Sat? Will there be any snow at all? 'Cause if everything's going to be slush, I might as well not go and I'll be very very sad

Is it possible to go boarding when its ~50 outside?
Definitely go. I rode in PA all last winter and the spring days when it was 50+ were much better than the freezing cold days. Slushy conditions are a hundred times better than the scrapped off ice that we normally are forced to ride.

I doubt it'll be really slushy because its only going to be in the mid 50s, but be prepared for a little different conditions just in case. You'll want to keep your speed up, especially if you're approaching a flat area as the snow will be slower. Also it can get a little bumpy and sort of toss you around, especially if you're not careful with your edges. It might be a good day to try out some steeper terrain if the greens are too slow.

The Pacific North West - Year round riding!

Out here in Utah were lucky if one of our resorts stay open till July 4th, still fun to go ride the mountains then come down to the city where it's 90 degrees - it definitely messes with your mind
