    Hey sorry to create zombie thread but.....

    Would it be worth it to come out either this weekend or next week...I'd be coming from Colorado so I'm not worried about the cold I just don't want snow

    What's good?

    What usually stays open and clear longest around there?

    I realize the likely answer is "it depends", but I'd assume that lower elevation trails are more likely to remain snow-free than the higher ones, and those with a southern aspect would as well.

    Has anyone ever produced a map showing both elevation and aspect for the area? I'm a big GIS nerd and this seems like a great way to predict what is rideable.

    With the exception if a little late rain forecast for Friday everything looks good with toasty temps in the low 50's there is residual snow on North facing slopes that are shaded. I would guess you would have a lot of patches on UPS but should be rideable. White Rim would be all clear but you do need a permit. It's dipping into the 20's at night but other than a little chill the riding is as good as ever.
    As for what's open..........everything if you ride a Fatbike :thumbs up
    The last couple Winters have been mild so there are very few days you wouldn't have been able to ride a skinny tired bike.

    Some people might dislike me for this, but I'm using ArcMap 10.3 to generate a map of Moab's trails (using 10m DEM files) to predict what will most likely be dry or snow free. Generating aspect and solar radiation area files as I write this.

    Sounds like a cool project! Why would anyone dislike you for doing that? Nevermind, rhetorical questions, just don't give them a copy....

    Some people don't want additional out-of-towners on "their" trails. A map of most likely to be dry trails would be bad news.

    You can always just call a bike shop in town and ask whats rideable.

    I know, I know....soooo 'first decade of the new millennium'.

    That's always a good option, too.

    However, I recognize the "limitations" of any model of data collection. Most notably, if no one has actually been out on a trail, there is no way of collecting data first hand.

    Given the sheer number of trails and trail miles in Moab, this is a legitimate concern. People can give you their "best guess", based on prior experience. But, more data is never a bad thing, IME. Thus, the use of remote sensing and modeling as I'm doing here.

    Rode up Porcupine Rim from the river two days ago. Started seeing patches of snow in shady areas on the sandy singletrack section just below LPS. We turned around due to time but suspect you could have reached LPS.

    Some snowy patches up at Navajo Rocks Yesterday but fine for the most part. I only remember one or two small spots of mud in 17 miles.

    Bump. I'm thinking about an impromptu quick day and a half down there Sunday. Weather looks really good.

    Sure-fire good trail suggestions are welcome, please.

    Thanks.

    ^^^^^^^

    We had 6" + at our house in town, there was more at higher elevations. Most of it has melted off as of today but any trails with North facing slopes are going to have a lot of residual. Everything's a " go" on a fatbike 😊

    Thanks for the info. I'll chime in again Saturday and see if it's worth the trip from SLC. I just want a good day and a half of miles I can put in.

    Rockstacker and Jackson don't get alot of sun this time of year, they are probably still snow and ice and I'd pass on them. Klondike and Mag 7, trails North of town get more sun and I'd look to ride out there.

    Any idea how things are looking after the (little bit, from looking at the weather?) snow yesterday?

    Headed down tomorrow to stay for a few days, would love to get some pedalling in if possible, if it's do-able I might even try to hit Carosel @ Klonzo w/ my 4 year old...

    We had a few more inches of snow yesterday, 3 to 4 in town, more at higher elevations. Temps are in the 20's so Im not expecting it to melt off fast. Perfect conditions on a Fat bike. Brand trails might melt off a bit but they get really muddy.
