    Rideable tomorrow? (yeah, another one of these threads)

    I'm not all that familiar with the way trails respond to the bit of snow we are having/had tonight. Any ideas on what trail would have the best conditions? Should I make the trek up to BC? The radar seemed to show that most of the snow was confined to areas east of the mountains. I know folks hate these threads!
    Cheers!

    According to the pinecam it looks like they got a decent dusting in Conifer. Knowing BC, though, it handles that moisture pretty well. I'd get out early (NOW) and go for it... Personally, I'm thinking about a Pueblo run.

    I rode the Roxborough loop yesterday, and it was still pretty snowy on the backside - with a few sections of mud. Only saw one other set of tracks back there. Up to Lenny's was pretty good to go, with far less snow and not too many softened trail sections.

    Oh, and I love threads like this, just so you know... lol Sharing trail conditions is a great use of MTBR resources.

    Meh. I don't feel like driving to Pueblo. Oh well, guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow. Maybe a road ride this afternoon will suffice.

    Hey Phil, check the Aunti Em thread by Onbelaydave. Sounds like they got just a bit - probably just enough to dampen the dry trails they had and make the dirt good.

    The dirt should be perfect in Lyons today.

    Rode DBB to Indian Summer and Coyote Ridge this morning and it was in perfect shape. Pretty cold though at 7:30, about 12 degrees.

    JEFFCO...Good to Go!

    I work right below Apex and all but the shadiest switchbacks are good to go...The gut of Apex a bit wet, but Pick and Sledge to the top is dry...

    Rode out to the first hump of Dakota Ridge and Zoro this week too and it's good...some co-workers rode Matthew Winters on the lower Morrison Slide and said it was great...

    50-60 for early week...sweet!

    I'll second that. Rode Green mountain to Zorro to Matthew Winters and back up Dakota to Zorro, all golden (my legs are toast). Get out there!

    Falcon is also good to go. Couple of snowy parts in the trees, but nothing major and easy to navigate. Parmalee was almost 100% dry.

    sorry for the duplicate. I'm sure the MTBR server will now explode.

    Rode Lair today with Playznmud. Very sloppy in spots, with packed snow and ice. I'd give it a couple more weeks. That's if we don't get any more snow up that way. I do love that trail though.
