    Winter riding in Moab ?

    Thinking about a trip to Moab or anywhere where the riding is decent in January. Trying to plan a trip away from the Pacific North Wet. Trail, guide or shuttle service recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Maybe a local would be interested in showing me around.

    Hoping for the first half of January 2011. Are trail conditions good that time of year ? Is snow a problem ?

    Thanks for any info !

    A much better choice would be Arizona or Vegas. Yes, there is usually some winter riding to be had here in early January, but conditions mimicking those we had last year will preclude that entirely. Rooms are cheap. Town is quiet.

    Meanwhile, southern Arizona (and even Sedona) have perfect day after perfect day through much of January.

    Moab can be a southwestern desert climate-town or a kind of light Colorado mountain climate-town in the winter. The last few years have tended toward the latter. I would go where the tendency is much more likely the former. Phoenix, Tucson, Sedona, Vegas.

    You can ride sovereign and the low, low desert trails. Gain any altitude and you will hit snow. Sitll some snow in the shadows.

    I had a dream last night about Poison Spider. It appears that it will be in the upper 50's this week. Has anyone been down there recently or know the conditions of the trails? I am thinking of going down this weekend.
