    THUNDERSTRUCK - actually Thunder Mountain

    Any information of riding thunder mountain the first week of April. I know it tops out at 8,200 ft., but it is pretty far south.
    Has anyone ridden it at this time?

    This photo was taken on 3/1/2008 at 5500 feet elevation on Little Creek Mountain. It is 50 miles farther south and it is a mesa, in spite of the name. So my crystal ball says that Thunder Mountain won't be ridable. This is the second wettest winter in the last 10 years.

    Not a chance. Sorry mate. I doubt it will be completely dry by the first of May. That area has received significant snow fall this year, as was mentioned above. Go to St. George instead.

    Call Ruby's Inn just outside of Bryce Canyon. They could tell you how much snow (if any) there is. The people answering the phone usually have no idea what condition the trail is, most probably don't even know there is a trail nearby.

    Their number is: 435-834-5341

    You would probably get better information calling this number: Red Canyon Visitor Center

    Which is likely closed now, and for some time to come.

    Yeah, kinda like the trail.

    I still have snow in my backyard, 6000' and slightly south and 45 miles west of Red Canyon.
