    Anything rideable in North Orem to South Salt Lake right now?

    Bonneville Shoreline above PG perhaps? Corner Canyon? How about across the valley in Herriman? I've read of some decent trails over there.

    I've been riding Corner Canyon in the mornings when it's frozen. The north side stuff (Rattler, Gasline, BST north of the road, etc) is 90% snow free and may even be fine in the afternoon. Some of the other trails like Canyon Hollow are pure slick ice in the morning and slop in the afternoon

    K most of the SLC Shoreline is good to go. Varies between frozen, mushy and dry. I just rode north and south of City Creek, great rip.

    Yeah, driving in yesterday the Shoreline bench above Lindon and PG looked pretty dry. Of course we were coming in from the south so only seeing the south-facing slopes.

    Kinda sorry I didn't bring the bike now. Oh well, we can take the girls swimming and to the mall instead. Nearly as entertaining and just as much exercise.

    I was hoping to check out Bobsled this week with the warmer temps; never rode it. Anyone know if it'll be dry or does it stay pretty wet being a creek bed, etc?

    I'd imagine Bobsled is in bad shape.

    I rode Corner Canyon yesterday. It was awesome. Lower CC, Rattler & BST are pretty much all that is dry, but they are in excellent shape.

    I have not been to the northern SLC trails recently, but a trusted source who lives close to there says things are really gooey unless you go when it's frozen.

    I am going to head out this afternoon to the BST around Bobsled. Not sure what kind of loop I will run, depending on conditions, but I will report back with some conditions!

    I'm also intending on BST on 1/27/15 (Tuesday), since it dries out so quickly.

    I got on the BST from Terrace Hills Dr. and rode up past Bobsled. It was muddy and icy towards the bottom but once you got a little higher and more exposed it dried up. Bobsled had lots of tire tracks leading into it from both entrances but it looked like a muddy mess with snow visible in areas from the top. The BST is relatively good to go, in spots, but I would recommend going early in the day before things thaw out otherwise you'll end up walking sections every once in awhile. Still, it was great to get out in shorts and ride!

    Today I rode from the Zoo to the bottom of Bobsled and back. The lower trails weren't too bad, but there were definitely some very wet areas. Some of them are also really thick clay mud that packed my tires and chainstays, I had to clear them a couple times.

    It felt good to get out. I'll take what I can get in January!

    I rode eagle mountain flinstone trail on wednesday 2/4 it was ripping good tacky almost, but the shorter trails that feed into the bike park bit were kinda soft. most likely bone dry by now.

    Standard: Shriner's/Popperton Park up Dry Creek over to and down Bobsled was pure primo dirt yesterday. Just a little rain today, but I would expect it to be right back in shape tomorrow if not already.
