    Springs Trail Conditions?

    I'm flying to the springs tonight. Anyone know how the trails around that area are with the snow/rain that you have been getting?

    Just in time for our next round of moisture.

    Palmer is in good shape at the moment, but it might snow/rain tonight. A couple of the trails (north facing stuff) have some muddy spots that should avoided.

    I'd say the conditions would be very decent at the moment, but the weather forecasters are calling for that to change tonight. Of course they are wrong more often than they are correct so cross your fingers and you could get lucky.

    On Sunday, just past, from Stratton Open Space I rode Chutes to the road Columbine to the road, back down Columbine to the road through the 2nd tunnel to the trail head and up the trail (I don't know the name) for a while.
    It was all in very good shape. There were a few wet,muddy spots and some snow up top. All in all it was OK.

    Rode Chutes Tuesday morning, seemed to be in good condition, there were a few muddy spots but not a ton. Was a nice first ride on the AC.

    I'm bored today, anybody want to ride Palmer?

    Well, I just got back from riding Ute and it was totally dry. On the other hand, it just started snowing heavily.

    The grass is getting covered at my house. Atleast I got to pick up my Titan with my newly installed E.13 STS Urban Guide on it that I got for free.

    Might I suggest a tour of the Springs "Flanders" style.

    That would be on a road bike, in cold, piss-poor riding conditions.

    Went to Breck today with my daughter, on the way back thru Divide I saw some roadies heading west and then another group heading back to town-it was snowing sideways!

    South west side of Colorado Springs I think... it'll be covered in snow now, or atleast really muddy.

    Yea, snow was good, maybe 4 inches of new at Copper. Not as much as I expected, but they say more is on the way. Weather up there was actually very nice - partly cloudy and reasonably warm until about 1 PM.

    Ute Valley park is off Vindicator, take the Woodmen exit and head west, it will turn into Rockrimmon, follow Rock. to Vindicator and turn right. Go up the hill and the parking lot is on the left after the school. Ute's pretty decent, I live right by the park but I rarely go anymore cause Palmer is much better.

    Cool, so what do you think Palmer will be like tommorow, how much snow did you get over there? I'm gonna get out and do something tommorow afternoon. Palmer was perfect wed., think it will dry up quickly?

    Tomorrow will be muddy. There will probably still be snow on the ground in the shade till later in the afternoon.
