    Fruita/GJ Conditions
    Hi there from the front range,

    Wondering about the conditions there right now. Snow on the ground? Thanks.

    You probably know this already, but call these guys if no one responds to your thread. Quickest way to get local beta in my experience.

    Road Rt 18 on Sunday. It was fantastic. Forecast is for 45-55 for the next week. Everything is open and dry. I will be out there again for sure in the coming week.

    GJ/Fruita is Dialed!
    Weather is sweet and trails have super tacky lately.

    Rode almost everything at Lunch Loops this past week and the trails are in better conditions everyday. Went across the desert from GJ to 18Rd today an everything was dry. So Koko stuff is probably just as good!

    The 10 day forecast looks pretty sweet for riding here!

    Tabegauche was in great condition Saturday morning (Dec 11th).

    I haven't ridden for the past month, so it was my first time riding the new Gunny Loop "double-track" bypass (not the bypass off of Gunnector, still don't know what to think of that) and the new re-route around that steep, loose, rocky climb towards the end of the loop on the south side of LPR.

    Kudos to the trailbuilders for those two new sections of trail. Makes the overall Gunny Loop experience more enjoyable.

    Yeah, the weather on Saturday was "tolerable."

    perfect weather this weekend. Thanks Fruita!

    Saturday was a SS day at Mary's/horsethief then a sunset romp on chutes/ladders and joes ridge. Sunday was a freeride shuttle day @ the ribbon/freelunch/eagles tail.

    Tuesday, Dec 21st

    Is there anything ridable in the Grand Valley or Moab at this time?

    We've gotten some rain this week, but I think everyone will agree this is the best December we've had in a long time.

    The ground is not yet frozen, it's only been getting down to the 40's at night. So things will dry out. Avoid the obvious north-facing muddy spots, but the trails for the most part are dialed.

    Anything long and easy in Fruita? Kinda like Gemini Bridge in Moab? We're considering trading our skiing plans for a couple of easy rides in Fruita, if there is one. By easy, I mean not overly tech. I'm coming off a cold and have a bike that I've not even test ridden yet. 2 or 3 hours of easier mtbing would be great to shake the cold and get the bike dialed in.

    Good news. I will be making my way to Moab next week unless the weather turns bad.

    Tabegauche was in decent shape (excellent conditions for this time of year). Rode Holy Cross. Only sketchy parts are sections of Clunker and Kids Meal.

    I see the sanitization of Holy Cross has begun. Was wondering when that would start. Quite a few 'techy' sections messed with.
