    Quattro cinco and voodoo fairly snowy. Outer limits and inner limits snowy in spots.

    Overall it's was ok, but probably wouldn't have driven down from Csprings if I had known.

    We rode today @ 9:30 and were out by 1:PM. Any later and it would have started to get muddy. Rode Voodoo, Outer/Inner limits, Quattro, ect and if you are headed down I would go early to avoid any melt.
    all single...all the time

    For the same amount of time you spend driving to Pueblo from C Springs, you can get to enough snow to XC ski.

    There is a season turn turn turn.

    +1 ^^ I like backcountry snowshoeing almost as much as riding. Squaw Pass has some great terrain.

    There are 6 trailheads that I regularly visit in the area.

    1-2 Beaver Brook Watershed lower & upper. I usually follow trails for a while then explore all over breaking trail.

    3-4 Just above Echo Mntn there is a popular trail up to the Squaw Mntn fire lookout. Trail starts at 10,000' and ends at 11,400' and I like to come back offtrail. There is a spur option to the right that takes you to the top of Chief Mntn.

    5 Just West of Squaw Pass before dropping to Echo Lake there is a smaller area to explore on the right.

    6 Echo Lake to Mt. Evans Wilderness is limitless!

    Let me know if you want a guided tour if we ever get more snow

    Nice. I usually hit up Rogers Lake as it is not on I70 and had good elevation gain, but I am always looking for more places.

    Conditions are good down in Pueblo. The main trails are dry, with only a few snow patches in shadier spots. The canyons need some more warmth to dry completely out.

    Rattlesnake, Bones, Pinball - Dry
    Rock Canyon - snow packed in spots (middle)
    Skull - mostly snow packed with some icy spots
    Freeride - snow packed in spots (middle) => WARNING: the transition from the steep rock ramp to the wood ladder has a section of ice, be wary until it melts
    Lower Dog - a few snow patches, in good shape (been cleaning it over the last week)
    Hooters - snow packed and icy => WARNING: after the rock squeeze the next angled transition rock is glazed with ice, be careful, took a nasty crash on it
