    Longmont got about 3". I was planning on doing a jaunt up to Heil this morning to look for the Easter Bunny but I am thinking it might turn into peanut butter once things start to warm up.

    Just shy of an inch in west Ft Collins. Got out before it thawed, but was drying quickly. Should be good to go late this afternoon.

    Some very nice pictures in this thread!

    Today has been in constant change. This morning was a frozen wonderland. In the last few hours my back yard went from 3 inches of snow to nothing and it is almost dry in some areas.

    Looks like Tuesday for sure...

    Don't be fooled by this picture. There was at least 2" of VERY wet snow on the ground this AM . WAY too wet to ride down here. Wait at least two to three days to ride .

    Just rode out to HTMP...and then up the service road. Blue Sky looked pretty good from the road. I would think it would be go-to-go by late afternoon tomorrow.

    It appears that is snowed less in the foothills than on the SE side of FC.

    A generous inch in Estes which melted out fast. It's surprisingly dry.

    I was doing a bit of recon and actually got to ride more than pavement and gravel. Lots of dry trail but some bits may get muddy as the icy spots melt out. Proceed with respect.

    Happy Easter.

    Just got back from Bobcat, the powerline and Ginny were bone dry or perfectly tacky, except for the couple north facing slimy spots on the climb up Ginny. Only saw 4 other riders and a few hikers.

    Golden is fine, anything that was dry prior to last night's snow is dry now. Did a quick ride up on NTM at about 11:30 today, and everything was pretty much melted and dry then.

    Steamboat didn't get any snow on Easter... Not that it matters too much, its still going to be white up here for quite a while.


    Damn horses! No wait... Damn snowboarders!




    My favorite shot.

    Marko,

    You are more than welcome to venture down from the hills and ride with us clueless city folks sometime. We'll even stash a cooler of PBR in the woods to return the hospitality.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    !!!!!! That is some sick stuff !!!!!!

    Just looking at those pictures makes me realize I have lost a LOT of nerve over the years.

    Sort of the yin and yang of western riding over Easter, eh. My sedate, smooth, curvy, trail riding pics and your crazy hucks and stuff

    That Eriksen with Yeti rear is sweet. I've seen them with Yeti and Ventana rears... Kent makes some beautiful bikes. So does it feel like a Ti ASR, or what?

    I like the trails riding pics personally. We always end up taking pics of drops, jumps and rollers just because that's what we end up riding, but I think that a shot of someone railing a corner or riding a long, snaking section of trail more accurately captures the spirit of things.

    The reason for the drops and rollers get photographed more often is they are typically well defined obstacles that can only handle one or two riders at a time. Therefore, the group has to stop at those obstacles to wait anyway, so what better time to photograph. It's hard for the photo guys to whip out their cameras while they are pedaling and pumping just as hard as the guy in font of him. But I agree with Godzilla. Photos of big rollers and drops don't make me smile like pictures of dang good riders railing singletrack do.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Not sure who you are asking? I did not ride it just ogled, fondled and photo'ed it.

    Wow, thanks everyone. I do love the sweep and flow of nice singletrack and trying to capture the fun feeling of riding it in pictures is a really great challenge. Thank goodness for digital

    As for getting the pics on regular trail rides, well it's called huffing and puffing and lots of it. It'll get you in shape in a hurry

    Not to belabor it and you might already have seen them but I posted most of the pics in Passion - Easter Trail Hunt.

    I actually really enjoy the roller pics, freaks me out what you guys can do and there is definitely a flow to that too.
