    The usual post-snow what is dry thread.

    Anyone have any updates? As of 2 hours ago Heil had an inch -- is it drying off? How about Hall? How about down south? Thanks

    Everything is good to go up in the Fort Collins area (north end of Blue Sky & and parts of HTMP). As of this posting, it's 47F and windy, so the heavy frost....err....snow we got last night has had no effect on trail conditions.

    Nothing in Jeffco at this time. If it's not got snow, its mud.

    Still 5" on the ground in SW JeffCo. I'd imagine Deer Creek and Waterton will be a good long while drying out.

    Dude - you gotta light (right? you really do have one - right?), and like I said for west mag - throw on a coat and some sweats - you're good to go for at least an hour from your house...

    Marshall Mesa area trails are good to go. Not really dry, though.



    I expect things will get ugly as soon as the temp gets up to the freezing point, though.

    Snow Stomping Fun

    Here in Steamboat Springs a few of us have continued riding regularly through the winter. This week we have had many inches of new snow and I rode one of my favorite trails this morning. It takes group teamwork and or high traffic trails to keep it going. After the first few inches of snow, two of us hiked the trail with snow shoes. That night and the next morning we rallied it! Several more inches fell, and another riding partner stomped it into shape last night... Four more inches fell, but we had firm path underneath and got it done again this morning! Except when the snowfall is measured in feet (Powder Ski!) we can enjoy the trails, and the ever changing, challenging conditions only hone our skills! A few items like big tires and low pressure, spare gloves, ski helmet, lights, clear goggles and winter shoes will get it done! I'll admit that the snowshoeing is a chore, I recommend whiskey .

    Nope. No snow sports for me this winter. Too expensive and requires dealing with I70 traffic.

    There's bound to be somewhere nearby I can ride?? I considered pulling out the road bike until I saw the wind forecast..yikes.

    Anyone into indoor rock climbing??

    Ski touring. Sourdough, BPT, Coney Flats, etc... very similar to riding ST, IMO. Invest once, not too much driving, not too many people.

    Too Expensive????....I'm a cheap scape bro...Found a board and bindings for $40 on Craigslist. Skipants for $7, Goggles for .99 cents..., Gloves for $25, Helmet for $11 on Ebay.

    I did throw down $80 on Boots but bought last years and they orginally sold for $200.

    Bought the Gems pass for $10....gives me a couple free days on the slopes and bought a Echo Pass for $150....Echo is just down the road, only 10 miles on I-70 and then about 15 on backroads.

    Sounds like I still threw down some doe right? Considering my drive train will be saved a few days a month from the wet n grime, I use my snowboard gloves and pants to take the girls sleddin and I get some cross training in...sounded like a worthy investment to me...specially once I get the Avalanche training and a few bros willing to go backcountry.

    Only idiots get stuck in i-70 traffic. Unless there is an avy, rockslide or 30 inches of snow.

    I surprised how dry it is at the low elevations. I just did a combo ride to Erie and back via East Boulder trail. It was tacky and good. It's full of clay so normally I would stay away. That means that MM, high planes and some of doudy should be dry. I don't know about the North shadowed sections though.

    I did a brief ride @ MM today, starting at 66th Street. Parts of Cowdry Draw was muddy, but just barely. If we don't get further snow, it should be just fine for MMAD on Tuesday.

    Hey lidarman...I live in Erie and am wondering about connecting up to the trails in Gunbarrel/east Boulder...from Arapahoe and 287...I know that I can get to Teller Farms and off Valmont the connector up to White Rock in Gunbarrel (by the water tank)...

    What is the East Boulder Trail?

    Going to have to ride in the early AM or road ride for a few more days in Ft. Collins. Maxwell was pretty sloppy as it started up the hill. Turned around and checked out Pineridge, and it looked pretty sloppy, too.

    I don't know any dirt from Erie to East boulder. East Boulder Trail is the section from 75th to the water tower and somewhere it turns into Teller farm....which you speak of.

    I can't answer your question because I don't think there is a trail...YET!.

    What is needed is the rails-to-trails on the RR heading east.

    Mt. Falcon & Lair O' the Bear 100% rideable on Sunday

    Beautiful day and great conditions for breaking in a new bike. A few snow/muddy spots, but barely splashed any mud on the new bike. Otherwise dry to tacky and no deep mud.

I came across a deal on eBay that I couldn't refuse. Turns out it was brand new.

    Here's a quick pic in the garage.

    Current Hall Ranch Conditions (December 10)

    Rode Hall Ranch from the Antelope side this afternoon between 1 and 3 p.m. Quite a bit of snow and some ice; conditions predictably deteriorate with higher elevation. Nelson Loop has quite a bit of snow. The ride was nevertheless enjoyable. Snow and ice were getting crunchy by 3:00 p.m. on the way down, however. If daytime temps stay warm the trail will probably be snow-free in two or three days .

    Just rode Hall today. Still lots of snow and ice (and some mud in the sunny spots). If temps stay warm and the sun's out, it'll probably be 2-3 days before the snow has melted and the trail has dried out.

    Any ideas of how the conditions are at matthews/winters or apex? I was hoping to do an early ride 6-9am-ish in the morning. Was hoping ground would be nice and hard that early. If that's not gonna happen then I'll just stick to a bike path and get some miles.

    Green Mtn looked pretty wet when I rode by this afternoon. However, I did see someone riding up the fire road.

    I would say everything around Golden/Morrison is not happening....there is still a good amount of snow.

    Agreed - I rode GM at 9:00 pm last night to catch it frozen and there is still a lot of snow around. It will be a mudfest during the day. I glanced across at Zorro and it is still very covered in snow - also going to be a muddy mess today.

    I tried riding Marshall Mesa today, but it was a mess. Started at 66th Street, and turned around at the first gate. Messy would be a colossal understatement. If it freezes, it might be passable, but I'd look elsewhere. I may go see how High Plains looks later today.

    I'm going to at least try north table mountain. Its gotta be at least passable. Will at least get a couple of runs up Green Mountain fire road.

    Coalton Trail looked OK, but I didn't check the top portion.

    Zorro looked mostly snowed in

    Did a road ride today and looked up the Zorro trail as I was going up Roney Rd.. It looked like it would not be an enjoyable climb.

    Hall ranch was good today; the rock garden was dry and there were patches of snow further up. Worst part was some mud at the top, but it was 90% not muddy. Its going to be snowy tomorrow though I guess.

    Marshal Mesa was ugly. Clay and snow are a bad combination.

    Awww... give it up pal. It's Colorado! Land of beautiful winters with beautiful snow to be played in! Let the trails recover and take a walk instead.. .
    Peace out and stay cool!

    If the ground is frozen, riding in winter won't hurt the trail. But if it's muddy (like it was yesterday on Hall Ranch), it's probably better not to ride so the trail can stay in good shape and you don't have to spend a half hour cleaning the mud off your bike. I also expended way more energy riding Hall yesterday at mid-day with sloppy conditions than I did the day before at dawn, when everything was frozen. Plus I did not have to clean my bike after the dawn ride.

    Did a half loop around Green Mountain last night 12/16 at 8:00 pm. Freakin' cold still and barely any trail visible under the inch or two of snow. Great traction though!
