    Educating guessing that the dusting in Golden will allow GM to be rideable Saturday. Awaiting word from the folks in Pueblo, but looks like they didn't get much down there either.

    Happy dance time?

    Pueblo, South Shore trails received just a trace of snow.
    Trail conditions are updated daily on lakepueblotrails.org.

    Looks like Pueblo is a no-go this weekend. Thankfully, GM and DR are still rideable.

    They were rideable two days ago and it doesn't look like much snow fell.

    Springs has lots of rideable stuff

    Palmer and Ute can be ridden early when frozen. All the Canon stuff will be fine this weekend too. I'm hitting the Canon tomorrow afternoon if anyone needs a guide/riding partner.

    Pueblo conditions.

    Pueblo received 1 to 2 inches of wet snow overnight.
    The canyons are slick and the trails will be muddy.

    Riding is probably not recommended for this weekend.

    You guys think GM will be good to go Tuesday for a night ride? We haven't been down there in a looooong time.

    It will be ready tomorrow, by Tuesday it will be completely dry all over the mountain. I would be surprised if Mathew Winters will be "mostly dry" aslo by Tuesday. We have some nice weather coming up and more importantly some wind in the forecast.

    Groovy, we'll plan on it. Probably be a late one as it'll take some time to get down there. Thanks Erik!

    Dave, Tuesday should be awesome. I'd be willing to jump in on that ride and we could always start and end at Ironworks, the local brewery.

    Just wanted to emphasize the EARLY and FROZEN parts of that. It sounds like things will be melting by 8:30 -9:00am based on the temp forecast so it would be a very early ride indeed.

    I rode Palmer on Wednesday night and it looks like most people have avoided riding in the mud--I think things look better than normal for this time of year in terms of ruts and stuff. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS AVOIDED RIDING IN THE MUD!!!
