    SNOW this morning, Sat 4/30/11!!

    Not much here in GJ, maybe an inch on the cars & lawns.

    Camping for the FFTF might be exciting this morning. I hope someone posts about it.

    edge loop conditions ?

    Hi All

    Just rolled into GJ from Utah as part of a MTB trip from UK

    Was wondering if anyone knows if edge loop is rideable at the moment ?

    And dare I ask if foti is clear of snow / mud ?

    Cheers

    Even with the rain today, I presume everything will be good to go on Friday?

    Maybe good to go eat pizza at the Hot Tomato!

    Yesterday they predicted sunny & warm for Thursday, today they predicted cloudy & cool for Thursday & Friday. Who knows? If (and only if) we don't get any more rain after about noon today, AND the sun comes out, the trails might be great on Friday. OTOH, they could be a muddy mess or anything in-between. Spring time can be very unpredictable.

    Thanks, Rick. I am going off of NOAA's forecast which has sunny and 70s for tomorrow.

    We are there all weekend camping for a bachelor party, so if we cannot ride on Friday, we'll just drink beer.

    That would be the local Channel 8 weatherman @ 6:00 am this morning.

    Much better outlook this evening with Channel 11 predicting 70 for Thu & 78 for Fri.

    Might be GREAT, or.....

    Heading up in a few weeks for SS USA and want to hit Fruita either coming or going. What are the best trails to ride if we only have one day?

    Thanks for the info.

    Any beta on current conditions? Thinking about heading over for a few days and it looks there have been some scattered showers out there.

    It has rained every day since Monday .
    Today (Fri.) I saw a group of riders on I-70 headed back towards Mack .
    Trails must not be much fun if there riding back on the interstate.
    Just about didn’t make it back to my campsite at R.V. Figured I better get out while I could!
    Love riding in that mud . Everyone should endure that experience at least once in there life.

    rustlers was dry this am

    was not sure it would be but had a few easily avoidable wet spots. So the Kokopelli area trails may be ok so far this am, barring any more rain

    Thanks for the responses, figured it was muddy last week and stuck around the front range (no riding here either). Rode our bikes to the bars instead

    Coming to camp at Monument and ride Fruita trails in mid-July. Any updates?

    Also, anyone know of any places to shower off after riding the trails in Fruita and GJ? We don't have a solar shower and would like to get clean after riding.

    TIA!

    Anyone been out to the Lunch Loops today (Tues) or yesterday? I imagine that it must be pretty sloppy but maybe the rain missed that area. Anyone have any luck out there?

    No way they've avoided all this rain. I'm not even considering trying it until Fri maybe? We got turned back by lightning Sun, never even got the bikes off.

    But, to answer your question, no I haven't actually gone out to verify.

    LL has been taking direct hits the last couple days, and again last night. Should be awesome this afternoon though, looks like we are out of the monsoon cycle.

    Loma was freakin' great last night, and practically nobody there. Total buff.

    Yeah, Koko was excellent last night. All this rain is awesome! I've only watered my lawn a handful of times this year and it's greener than it's ever been!

    Nope, we parked off clunker. Though I did almost forget my keys at the top of Ribbon! That would have sucked at 11pm.

    Ribbon was awesome last night. The usual sandy bits were all packed down perfectly.

    Fruita's Kokopeli trails tomorrow?

    Tomorrow's supposed to be rather wet... Just wondering, are the Kokopeli trails near Fruita ridable in these conditions?

    Cheers!

    I just got back from Moab yesterday and they didnt get much rain. My FIL called today and said it didnt rain much if any today either. GJ got very little today. I was able to mow my lawn tonight. Trails might be fine. Call Over the edge for fruita/loma trail conditions. Call Ruby Canyon for Lunch Loop conditions

    Other ideas:
    Drive over the Colorado National Monument
    Allen Unique Auto museum
    Museum of Western CO
    Go cart racing at GJ motor speedway?
    Gateway Auto Museum

    Might be OK. Call or stop by Over the edge for conditions in the AM. They will probably have current info.

    No. Parts of Kokopelli (especially Rabbit Valley) turn to molasses when wet. No bueno.

    Looks like the best riding will be Sunday/Monday assuming trails have time to dry out.

    Just got off the phone with a buddy who is down at Rabbit Valley. He said the clay there was pretty slick-definitely not going to ride for a while.

    Fuita Conditions

    I realize this report will only be valid today and tomorrow, but what are the conditions in Fruita right now?

    Just realized I have to burn some vacation before year end and thought I should try to take immediate advantage.

    I may head that way this evening to get in some riding before it's all over for awhile.

    Moab conditions would be nice to know as well, if you happen to have hit both lately.

    I thought about trying to get a lap in on the White Rim this week, but I am guessing it will get snow cold along with Colorado Wed and Sat?

    Thanks,

    Conditions are really good right now, sunny, 50's and 60's. Last week brought us some much needed rain to pack down the dust. Wednesday calls for some cooling (40's) and possible rain, then it warms up again. I imagine Moab is about the same.

    Still the same in Fruita?

    Thinking about skipping skiing and riding the bike instead. Any snow on the ground out that way?

    Looks like highs in the mid 40's. Not too bad I guess.

    Should be fine, had a little snow this week. But it's sunny and chilly - mud is unlikely.

    Got 1 good lap in at highline Sunday. Second lap it warmed up a bit and softened up too much on the shaded areas. Turned back after about 1/4 lap.

    Rode Marys, Lions and Troybuilt, yesterday. Some snow, but not muddy. Cold, but not so much that you want to stay home.

    My advice, Git Sum!

    Marys Loop was great today

    Rode free lunch and pucker up saturday. Horsethief Sunday. Still a decent bit of snow on the lunch loops from earlier in the season but plenty of dry riding to be had. Free Lunch was holding snow on anything N to W facing making some of transitions a little shall we say...puckered. Stay clear of the clay.

    Loma-Mack area was almost completely dry. Just little patches here and there in the gullys and completely shaded areas.
    Yield to downhill

    18rd is good too.

    Did Edge loop east to Edge cutoff, went west up Chutes, then did Joes and back up for a full run on Kessell's Sunday. Got snowed on a bit, but trail was in great shape. Just a little buildup on the tires while it was snowing.

    Didn't have to wash the bike which is more than I can say for last weekend at LL.

    Anyone done the trails recently at Kokopelli/Loma with generally north or west facing aspects - e.g. Moore Fun, Mack Ridge, Troy Built? If so, how is the snow cover on these?

    Weather was a non issue in the Grand Valley this weekend. It's still dry, just a bit cooler than last week.

    Bean Man, You've made my week.
    I'm mired in Crested Butte and desperate for some ride time in the sun.
    Anyone else want to meet in GJ/Fruita Wed/Thur?

    Bean Man spoke the truth.
    Rode GJ/Loma Wed/Thur.
    It was great. No go on the Loma ridge trails (as you'd expect) all else is good.
    In GJ I only rode below the Widow Maker and it was all good w/ small patches of slip here and there.
    If you are on the fence- Go.

    The dog and I did Marys and Horsethief on Thursday. I broke the bolt holding my seat on the initial climb into Marys so Stan and I had to go into GJ and get a new seat post before riding the loop.

    My dog loves Horsethief. On most rides he heels behind me early, on this ride he knows where he's going and doesn't need me to pace him.

    Current conditions?
    Gunnison Valley got plenty of snow over the weekend. How'd GJ do?
    Any change? Is there riding to be had?

    Snowed last night but mostly melted by today. I would say it will be muddy for the next few days. Probably dry by early next week.

    Bummer I was hoping to get out tomorrow. But if they aren't ready I'm not gonna bother. Figured that moisture wasnt gonna be gone yet. Did you go in the am or afternoon? I was thinking maybe it would be ok if I went early and it was still frozen.

    Any chance someone could give a weather updated, watching all three weather sites and can not tell if anything has fallen in Fruita/GJ. Looking to try and find some dry dirt this weekend, is there any chance of that?

    Rode Mary's to Horsethief today and back. Last part of Horsethief had stretches of mud, didn't try Steve's or anything higher since it was a mudfest last week. It was great weather for a ride today. Dog is tired, and am working on my 2nd Ranger IPA, life is good.

    Trails still good to go in fruita? We were getting sooo close to having clear trails before these last 2 storms came through the front range.

    From OTE's Facebook: Lots of phone calls on trail conditions...As of the afternoon of Feb 8th we have received NO precipitation. That leaves the Kokopelli Trails and lower Lunch Loops looking good in most spots, as long as we don't get anything tonight. 18 Rd/Bookcliffs and Rabbit Valley are getting close, but with the nightly freeze/thaw they are soft and muddy in spots.

    Was hoping to hit 18rd this weekend on the rigid since the FS is in the shop. I think it's supposed to be nice tomorrow, you think sat or sun will be ok?

    Anyone been on Western Rim this winter?

    Only did a short ride, Clunker & Miramonte Rim were great. Holy Bucket had muddy spots. I would stay off Holy Bucket. Ran into another guy that did Gunny and he said it had some mud.

    Ran into a buddy at the shop afterwards, he rode Pete-e-kes, High Noon, Miramonte and Curts and he said it was fine.

    We'll see you out there - we're bringing an SB95, and can't explain how stoked I am to get that thing on the dirt.

    Sweet! Freelunch-pucker up good to go?

    Recommend the LL route for Sat please! Can we go above Widow Maker? Holy Cross? Gunny?

    Whats the route? I do not want to screw up those awesome trails at all.
