    Looks minor for F/R trails. Just means we will be going slower for a couple of days.

    Rabbit mountain was perfect this morning, 35-40 out the whole time and no wind. Great morning for a ride.

    Looks to me like the "riding" should be BETTER tomorrow.

    Dirty Bismark lunch ride today--complete. not much wind today so even the open stretches were pleasant.

    Enjoy your snow bikes tomorrow--at least those of you who bought one--those things sold out fast this year.

    Double cheers to that.


    The problem I see with this storm is the low is forecast at 25F. I think this will be a slushy mess given the soil temps have been way above freezing for a while now.

    Tons of snow in the Front Range, not much in the mountains.

    Looks like a trip to Fruita/Moab might be in the works in the coming weeks.

    Looks like this one will kill riding for a minimum of 2 weeks unless you love to ride in the snow or when it is frozen.

    I'm going to WY today. Is driving really that bad going through Denver or is this just mainstream media hysteria?

    Just talked to a friend who came down from Johnstown to Longmont, said I25 wasn't too bad, snowpacked, everyone doing about 35 to 40 mph. Ft Collins didn't get much snow.

    48" in Blackhawk, 36" just south of Evergreen. Maybe 14" here in Westminster.
