    How is Buffalo Creek right now?

    We might head over to Buffalo Creek today but with the snow on Thursday evening, thought I would see if anyone was over there on Friday or had thoughts on what conditions would be like. Thanks ahead of time.

    Thanks. We headed out there today and it was perfect. Was nice and warm thru-out the middle of the day and then a little chilly as the afternoon wore on. Snow only in the odd shady places. Great day of riding right after a snow day. You have to love CO for that.

    Rode out there yesterday(down shinglemill, up baldy, down gashouse and up morrison/shinglemill). The dirt was absolutely perfect shy of the extremely isolated wet patch in the trees. First time riding that route/those trails. Very fun for a mid distance ride.

    I did a big loop out there yesterday and everything was perfect except for the CT West of Shinglemill. It was sloppy for quite a few miles. I have to remember to skip that section! Doh!! No trail damage just spray from the melting snow got me wet and cold.

    Also road there yesterday. A fun loop is up Nice Kitty, to Buffalo Burn, to CT and down Shinglemill. Conditions were awesome. Set a new PR on the shinglemill descent (including pulling over for a group of 3) and almost broke into the teens in strava ranking LOL.

    One of these times the entire downhill run will be wide open for you!

    Can anyone comment on how much snow BC ended up with and the odds of it being dry by Saturday afternoon?

    someone asked the same thing in another thread. My answer:

    Well, I was at Buffalo Creek yesterday. It looked like this to start:


    And this when we ended:



    If it's warm and sunny, you might be alright.

    FWIW, it was very spotty. We got caught 6 miles from the parking lot up near Black Jack. There was close to 3inches in some places and still snow. By the time we got to Pine there was 0 snow.

    Snowed pretty good last night and into the afternoon here in Summit. Any word on whether Buff Creek stayed dry?

    Just folks out having fun and getting some exercise. I was out there and had zero issue. everyone yielded as needed, and made room if they were stopped. A stranger loaned me a tool that I didn't have that I needed. What's not to like?

    Agreed, I was out and had nothing but positive interactions with people. It was a 60 degree day in November and there are still lots of Boulder area trails closed, big crowds were to be expected.

    Honestly, once we got out of the parking lot, we didn't see that many people and those we did were all like minded people having a good time. What a great day to ride, our group had a blast.

    Parking lot is always crowded, I've never encountered that many people on the trails before though. Ran into one group (5 or 6) just stopped in the middle of the trail with no easy way around, and two other groups (10+) blocking trail intersections, bikes everywhere etc. I really don't care... just a little inconsiderate.

    It was perfect Saturday too, albeit a little cold to start.
