    No more snow!! Where to go until it melts May/June (Anti-Front Range)?

    We all know Moab/Fruita/GJT.

    LIST:
    Glenwood Springs
    Carbondale
    Eagle
    Buena Vista
    Salida
    EDIT TO ADD:
    SW Colorado - Durango, Telluride (low snow year for them)
    Taos, NM
    Curty Gowdy, WY

    Those should be rideable soon if not as of now.

    What else should I add to the list?

    Bascially, looking for places to head on the weekends (away from Front Range) until the higher elevation stuff drys out... which, this year, looks like it's gonna be a while.

    We've been in serious melt mode here in Breck but it will be long time before Summit County is rideable. It is a very muddy mud season now but there will be snow in the forests and above treeline for months. Lots of big cornices dropping and heavy slopes sliding to the bare ground

    However, Moab was fantastic last weekend. The weather and ground looked very pleasant in Eagle, Glenwood, Fruita, GJ, etc.
