    I don't live in Durango but I used to spend a lot of time there. I don't know where you are from but in places like Durango it's all elevation and to a lesser extent aspect dependent. Durango sits at something like 6500' - little higher than the CO FR, but not quite as dry. In lower snow years you can ride some of the lower elevation trails March - November give or take a little bit depending on storms.

    Go to plan B. (Plan A with raincoats).
    Seriously though, ride early and stay off open terrain during electrical storms. Monsoon season is awesome.
