    Probably nothing since we got another couple of inches of new snow last night. Looks like another day at Pueblo

    If no fresh powder hits the springs, would something like Palmer be do'able by mid-week?

    I'm out visiting the g/f in Denver for a week or so and we thought about heading down just to hack around for a bit. Also, are there any places online to get trail maps and all that fun stuff?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think Palmer will be rideable today with the new snow and 40 forecasted for the high.


    amajeski- If we don't get any more snow it probably will be ok. May have to watch for a few muddy bits. Looking at the forecast it should be good to go by late in the week/weekend.

    Old stage will be mostly rideable. Icy and snow packed in the shady spots and once you get up high around where Gold Camp intersects. The steep sections before and after the stables are really slick. Upper gold camp will still have a lot of snow.

    Rode Ute Valley today for the first time and it was in great shape. A pretty good hand full of mid-day slackers had the same idea as well. It was great fun!

    Well I hit up Palmer today, overall it was in pretty good shape, there were quite a few riders out there as well. I took one of the guys I work with there and he is hooked on Palmer, and technical mountain biking!

    well before tonights storm red rocks was good, the garden, ute valley, palmer park, and the chutes. you can get up gold camp for a little but right before buckhorn it starts to collect again. man i want all this snow to melt so all the good trails are rideable
