    It's a bit cold. 5 degrees right now (9:00 AM), that's -16 for you guys using Celsius. No drying out at those temps, but no mud either.

    How is this coming weekend looking in Fruita for trails? Anyone on the ground have up to date info? May just keep going to Moab if snow is still an issue. It's snowing pretty hard in Aspen at this moment, but maybe just raining in Fruita? Would love to hit 18 Road...

    We're thinking of heading out Friday afternoon...but also looking towards Moab, or even Pueblo, Salida or even Denver.

    Can someone keep us updated as the end of the week is showing warmer weather. Thinking Sunday could be good to go in GJ??

    Please make it melt and dry out! I can't take much more of this stupid winter.

    Rode Tabeguache on Sat. & Sun.

    Kurts, High Noon, Holy Cross, lower Eagles are great. No mud spots, some areas of snow. Conditions may worsen slightly this week as snow melts off (the climb out of HC comes to mind, snowpacked now).

    It was pretty snowy and muddy on Friday afternoon. We drove out to 18 Road just to check it out on our way to Moab, and it was quite far from rideable - not sure about the other trails that way.
    Moab on the other hand was great. Amasa Back had almost no snow (except for the entry), and Poison Spider was in similar condition, with very little snow save for some shady sections and the long dirt road section, but rideable the entire way. It was in the 50's most of the weekend.
    Skiing in the La Sal's is also good I'm happy to report.

    Some photos from today at the Lunch Loops. No mud, dry dirt or packed snow, lots of fun.

    Don't know what it's like out at the Kokopelli, but I'm guessing it is similar. 18 Road is the last to dry out and would probably be a mess.







    As it warms up and the snow melts a bit more, some places will be quite a mess.

    We got some good riding in Moab in. We rode from town to all the rides to add some miles. Short video is here: http://www.vimeo.com/19196129

    Rode lunch loops around 9:30 this morning. Wow, conditions are getting better everyday. Pet-E-Kes, Squeeze, Coyote Ridge, Ali-Ali and Kurts were awesome. Should be awesome later this weekend and next week as long as everyone avoids the snow sections which are going to turn to mud.

    I hiked 18rd last night, if it doesn't have snow on it, it's deep mud, still a couple weeks away from rideable. Took the dog for a hike on Rustlers Monday, good to ride early before it thaws, there were some big ruts from those of us that are over eager (patience, it builds character) . The stuff at Kokopelli should be good with just a couple more days of sun and 40deg temps.

    Looking at a Sunday ride with the dog. Driving out heading west midday today (Sat). Would hopping on the Kokopelli just south of Mack be rideable? Looking for something that's not super technical and only about 8-10 miles, out and back or loop.

    Fruita would be in better shape than GJ's Gunnision Bluff's Trail area wouldn't it?

    Lunch Loops are probably your best bet in the valley, Koko will be ok if you ride early. maybe just keep going west to Moab, there's a group of us headed over this morning to ride Pipedream.

    You must not have ridden the same High Noon that I did. But, seriously, everything else was in excellent shape on Sunday. Hopefully things will dry out by this weekend.

    We met up there on Sunday morning too. The first ride on my new Pivot.

    The Lunch Loops were in great condition and we were early enough to be off of them by 11:00.
