I've been dabbling on the pump track over the weekend and I think maybe there's some winter potential there. I've talked to other pump track dudes who talk about how fast a frozen pump track is (obviously), but those were young-ish bullet-proof types, and the concrete-like hardness of a frozen pump track has always struck me as downright scary, honestly. Hard-packed dirt is bad enough.
The dabbling was pretty treacherous and I have to give myself an attaboy for even having the nuts, and yes I did go down once and it was a fairly harsh impact that had me hobbling around and cussing for a few minutes, but sometimes you just have to push buttons, and then maybe some new doors will open for you. This might be one of those times, or not. Only time will tell.

this bicyclish nonsense and choose to play a real game. "Chucker's choice", is the enticement.
Mother nature will have to do her part by providing a not-tremendous amount of snow and a good stretch of cold, but I'm willing to do the necessary work on the track (clearing snow, smoothing and packing prior to the deep freeze).
Anyway, I guess this is either a cry for help or a preview of coming attractions. Take it as you will.
