instead of going to the hills go to the bighorns. I live in Gillette WY right between the big horns and black hills. the horns are 5 times as good as the hills. probably 3-4 feet more snow, lots more trail, and the black hills dont have much open areas to go play in the powder if they have any. the horns have thousands of open acres. I rode the hills once 4 years ago and have never been back. the horns are that much better.

I aggree i have ridden in the hills many times when i was younger and it is nothing like the big horns i will never go back to the hills even though it is about 6-7 hours closer to me. The hills are somewhere between the flat land and the real mountians. your uesed to riding trails and lakes that is all you will ride in the hills to other than some small hills to climb. They let the trails get very bad also. you would probably be alright going on the 28th for trails though. Good luck to you.
