    What is open in Summit this weekend

    Looking to go up to Summit this weekend and wanted to know if there is anything open to ride up there. I know all the high stuff is still buried under tons of snow but what about some of the lower stuff, like Blair Witch area?
    Any other recommendations around the Silverthorne/Frisco area.

    Driving through yesterday looked like not much would be available. Eagle looked to be good to go.

    Yeah eagle is probably the only thing in that area rideable unless you have a fat bike.

    Never ridden in the Eagle area. Anyone know of any extended mileage single track areas there? Any 20+ mi. rides? I've looked at several individual maps. Everything seems to be quite short.

    Yep, this is true. It's been a wet, cool May in Summit. Some trails on sunny, lower elevation aspects are starting to melt out and dry up but they get wet, muddy, and/or snow covered as soon as you turn the corner onto more shady areas so you may be able to ride a short section of trail, but you'll not be able to do any loops. It' going to be a while before any of the higher stuff opens up. But water is just pouring out of the mountains so it is melting, it's just going to be a somewhat later melt out this year.
