    Current Conditions around Moab

    I've got a bit of free time the next few days and was wondering if anything around Moab is rideable. I understand if it's not, as AZ just got a large storm. Thought I might make the trip though, as I've never been up to those parts.

    We had some more snow Wednesday. If you have a Fat bike you might be able to ride Navajo Rocks/ Horsethief area but a trail up there that normally takes me an hour took me almost three last week with 8Ē of snow. Brand trails will be mud. Klonzo= mud. Porcupine= snow& mud. Klondike.....some trails on slickrock will be ridable but shaded areas will have snow and ice.
    The only thing I might try is Amassa back/ Ahab as itís mainly south facing and gets alot of sun, even then Ahab is going to have ice/ snow on the lower half.
    Sorry, not a bright report.

    In case anyone was wondering, Moab got a pretty big snowstorm 2/16-2/18. Eight inches of wet snow in town, more on the higher trails I'm sure. It is supposed to be very cold (for Moab in February) for at least a week, hopefully it warms up and melts enough for the Poison Spider Thaw event the first weekend of March.

    What's the word on this latest round of rain/snow? poison spider is showing amasa area closed. Any chance of rock stacker/Jackson's being dry by the weekend?

    We had rain through last night. Everything is pretty muddy today, things in the sun will be dry by Saturday. Jacksonís is shaded and Iím guessing it probably still has snow on it, I think Hymasa, Ahab may be doable by Saturday.

    Hey guys, any update ? I was checking on strava and it looks like porcupine still has snow. Seems like you guys had lots of snow this year ! Headed there in about 3 weeks. How close do you guys think we are from having UPS ready to go ?

    In three weeks you will likely be able to do UPS. I did Porcupine proper last Tuesday and there was only a skiff at the very top.

    Honestly Utah didnít seem to have all that much snow. Driving home through West Yellowstone I noticed some houses were completely engulfed in snow. The snow on the roofs met the snow on the ground. Come to Montana if you want to see snow. Go to Utah if you want to ride bikes.

    Hard to compare Yellowstone snowpack to Moab snowpack.
    But, Utah is in pretty good shape for water this year, overall.
