This sucks. Been snowing every day since I got back from spring training. I drove an hour and a half each way to ride in the rain in Salida yesterday. Tomorrow I'm just giving up and skinning up to Lake Chutes. I know better than to be in Breck during mud season but came back early this year.
As I'm sure most have heard Keystone will not have any bike trails open this weekend. I walked some of the lower trails a few days ago and there was still at least a foot of snow on them, and we have gotten more snow since then. It is supposed to be warm through this weekend and we will check them again early week and evaluate if it is worth doing some shovel work on them.
We will be open this weekend for tubing and a terrain park in the summit area. On Saturday and Sunday there will be live music. Saturday there will be a Strider Cup race for the kids in the base area and on Sunday there will be a BMX stunt show.

(Hoping for sunny warm weather)
The weather is looking good till then so maybe the lower ones. I wouldn't expect the upper trails to be ready till June 20 or later depending on how much they shovel. Even then they'll still be muddy. On the 5th you'll do better to go to Sol Vista.
I had a good chat with a couple Keystone bikepark guys yesterday while my little 2 year old was ripping it in the Strider Cup. They said that there is still about one foot of snow in the trees and it depends on the weather this week if they will open next weekend or not. If anything it will be mid-section down that would be open but they said its a 50/50 shot. I did get some sweet shots of their demos though. Lots of goodies left from last year and some sick new whips as well! 2010/2011 Trek Scratch, 2010/2011 Trek Sessions! Tons of Remedy's as well!
