    Crested Butte Trail Conditions? 401 and Doc's

    Just breezed through the trail conditions thread and didn't see any updates... we are on a MTB road trip and hoping to ride either 401 or Doctor Park. Anyone have any recent info on these trails? I know the area got some snow and not sure how muddy or wet they might be!

    Thanks!

    I guessed you breezed right past the links on the 1st page...
    I would agree with their assessment, and there is weather possible tomorrow.

    The alpine trails are pretty much done. Had snow last night and when that melts expect lots of mud. You might be able to ride Doc park, but it will probably be a bit muddy as well.

    Zinger-uk and I rode Doctors yesterday. It was dry enough not to leave tracks up until near the top. Once we entered the trees there was four inches of snow and the trail was post holed badly by horses. We ended up having to pry frozen mud off our derailleurs and front triangles and had a host of misadventures including putting a tube in my front tire with numb fingers. Very glad we brought our lights because we finished in the dark. Also very glad we both carried survival gear, we could have survived an uncomfortable night up high but we wouldn't have liked it. Even more glad Zinger carries a lot of tools and stuff that I SHOULD have had because it would have been a long walk out for me.
