    Thunder Mountain Season

    How soon is too soon, typically? In other words when would be the earliest one could ride out there with out the fear of going "Donner Party" on each other because of snow?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'd expect April or May for this fun, beautiful trail as the altitude gets near 8000'. Plan on May this year as it's been a great snow season so far.

    Unless the snow is prodigious, I intend to ride it at the end of April. The second (descending) half of the trail gets much more sun exposure, and thus melts off much faster.

    In other words, if you can make it through the first, relatively flat part, you'll do just fine.
