    Brianhead trail conditions

    Does anyone have an idea of when they will be rideable. I'm talking about the DH trails like Darkhollow..etc. They're answering machine says that they don't open until the end of June. Just wondering if there is any chance of getting up there June 9/10th.

    I've heard of a couple of them already rideable with no snow.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
    THERE IS NO WAY Dark HOLLOW IS Ridable............WE went on Saturday and there was a TON of snow!!!!!!!!!!!!! some one said it was clear so we gave it a try......WE wERE WALKING THROUGH SNOW up TO OUR CHEST!!!! I pictures to prove it.......
    DONT GO!!
    I WOULD SAY MID JUNE....20th...ish.....
    Dark Hollow is one of the best rides, and we walked it first for the season....Lucky us : (

    Brian Head is the highest elevated resort in Utah. hence the reason DeerValley opens before Brian Head....
    DeerValley Opens the 14th of JUNE

    I was listening in on a conversation and not really paying attention to the 2 trails they said were clear. Sorry

    Does anyone have any other ideas for some decent DH shuttle-able trails? It's getting a little hot here in Las Vegas and I'm able to get over there on the second weekend in June.

    If you guys are coming all the way from Vegas, you will want to hit the shuttle trails in the Virgin area. Grafton Mesa, Flying Monkey and the IT trail.

    Give it two weeks. If you don't mind hiking though a mile of snow on the peak go now or do some of the lower ride.

    I'll be up there during the week of June 25. Hope it's all clear by then.
    If not biking, then what?

    sure doesn't look like much snow...

    is left to me. http://www.brianhead.com/summer/webcams.html

    I'll bet both Bunker Creek trails are rideable. They have a more south/southwest aspect. Give a call to the FS office in Cedar City to see if they've been cleared of deadfall.

    I was in Sidney Valley last Sunday, and yesterday. A lot of snow has melted in the last week. There was a fresh blow down at the Sydney Valley overlook, but it isn't blocking the trail. I would guess there will be trees across Right and Left Fork of Bunker, but they are probably mostly ridable. Right now the mountain is very dry, trails are extremely dusty for this early in the season.
