Snow is melting fast and duel sports days on both the snow and dirt are super easy right now.
Thereís about 12 miles of newly built single-track open in Genoa, NV just over Kingsbury Grade about 25 mins from South Lake Tahoe. These new trails were built by the Carson Valley Trails Association about a year ago. Theyíre another non profit volunteer group of mainly hikers and equestrians, but the trails are all open to bikes. Support them if you can, theyíre doing great stuff - the more mtn bikers the better. Check out a map of the trails here: http://www.carsonvalleytrails.org/do...ProjectMap.pdf
Weíve been riding 2 loops, the 10 mile Discovery Trail and also a shorter version by dropping down the lower section of Sierra Canyon trail (thatís the one that goes up to the Rim Trail). Plus Genoa is a cool old town to base off with hots springs and an old bar.

Plus the trails in Tahoe are melting fast too, yesterday I checked out Powerlines and itís mostly clear between Ski Run Blvd and Cold Creek bridge. Another week or two and itíll be completely clear Ė Corral Trail following that. Oh and donít forget to vote for Corral on the Bell Built Grant!
