    Shuttle & weather advice for Moab next week?

    Will the bike shop shuttles take riders up to Burro Pass or Hazard County in case it has snowed there next week? They're expecting some snow this weekend in de La Sals and was wondering at what point they would stop doing shuttles up there?
    I understand that everything is still snow free at The Whole Enchilada?
    Trying to plan a trip to Moab next week and see if there's any shuttle advice regarding this? Any recommendations for shuttles that would go up to Burro Pass?
    Thanks!

    It's hit or miss this time of year.
    Drop locations have been fluctuating from LPS to Burro since late Sept.
    Shuttles will run as long as there's rider demand and the weather doesn't completely shut things down.
    The drop off location just gets lower as the weather factors in.
    This time of year I've been dropped at Burro one day and LPS a few days later.
    Call Bryan at Porcupine shuttle and see what he says, but be flexible due to weather.
    If snow/mud closes Burro/Hazard/Upper Koko, you can often still hit Lower Koko to UPS down.
    Mag 7 to Portal is another option for a long shuttle.

    Porcupine Shuttle says they will be dropping off at LPS this weekend. I guess that storm had quite a bit of moisture.
