    Brainard Lake ... and the trails around?

    has anyone ventured themselves near Brainard Lake?
    - snow drifts? rideable?


    This is the route i usually take:

    Being that there's snow at 8000 ft, I'm pretty sure there's lots of snow at 10k.

    That would be a good guess.
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...

    This snotel sensor is right in that vicinity. Says there's still 2-1/2 feet of snow on the ground at 10.3K.

    i guess i was at Storm Mountain last weekend which is at 10k and didn't have that much snow but Brainard might be closer to the divide....and have more snow

    I'd say it's going to need some more time.. it's nearly dry here in Ned but going up 4th of July road yesterday it was still nearly 2+ feet of snow pack above 9500'.
