Was curious if anyone knew whether or not the Peaks trail is open and free of mud-ice etc. thought i would ask since we have had this Indian Summer?
Not free of mud snow and ice.
I wouldn't expect it to be. It's colder and more shaded than trails on the other side of route 9. Also seems to get more precipitation. Since we're on the topic though and I'm out of town, where is the snow/mud line? Is anything in Summit good riding right now? Frisco Penninsula? Dredgeboat trailhead? How far up can you go above Carter park before it gets muddy? I left Oct 22nd this year and it sounds like I jumped the gun and missed a few weeks of riding.
Yep north side of 9 was pretty clear today... I rode up and over Swan and then up Fry Gulch which is above the dump and shooting range and found some great stuff, especially the downhill that comes out at St. Johns.
Frisco Pennisula I've heard is clear....I think I'm going to go find out tomorrow. Anyone wanna go?
As of 11/29 Peaks Trail is open to Breckenridge... There is snow the last 3/4 up but its packed snow and fun. I wouldnt down hill it to Frisco, but i rode 99.5 % without having to hike. Thanks to the shade temps its not muddy, but snowey with ice in rare spots.
Tour De Trash trail is also open above the dump, Fry Gulch was pretty clear in Keystone, St. johns down hill completely clear. Keystone trail to Dillon above dump too.. So plenty of riding open.
