    Glorieta typically will snow up after a good snow for a while. The trails are mostly clay, so if it does thaw, it's no fun for anyone.

    Typically we ride La Tierra, Galisteo Basin and sometimes Dale Ball in winter months depending on snowfall. So you switch the XC in the winter months and back to AM as thing thaw.

    Keep an eye on the weather, we're still another 1,500' above Golden so same winter logistics apply.
