Trail status scripts
« on: December 11, 2011, 07:55:27 PM »
Hey I was wondering can the scripting be changed for the yellow status so instead of saying 'sloppy in spots' can it say 'freeze/thaw ride only when frozen or before 10am"? I saw a post on here about a blue light being developed which I guess would have different scripting but just throwing this out there.

We are working to add another color for freeze thaw days.  Freeze thaw is hard for us, as the trail my be fine in the early morning, or even later in the day, but terrible as it thaws.

Riders out early often report back that the trails are great, and beginner riders reading the posts head out to a trail that is now a thaw'd out mess.

Until we get the new color, lets stick to red on freeze thaw days.  experienced riders who know how to use the early or late frozen time, can  do so.

I agree Paul it is best this time of year to be overly cautious rather than tear up the trails.

I like the Blue for Freeze/Thaw...One "bug" with it however...The blue shows up great on the forum page, but does not show up at all on the  http://www.hmba.org homepage.


Thanks

FWIW...The blue freeze/thaw status roll-over now says "sloppy in spots" instead of the freeze/thaw warning.
