Right. I guess to be more specific, I'm hoping to get out on dirt Wednesday or Thursday and wanted to know if anyone had ridden/had an idea of whether Skeggs or water dog are or will be wet but rideable (ie won't cause too much damage). If not, are there places near there that dry out faster and would be good?

Thanks a lot

snow last sunday

rode Skeggs last Sunday 02/20/2011 and to our surprise there were still snow on the ground.

Lots of trees down and sloppy at the lower elevations. Should be rideable by now :thumbsup:

Off 35 and CM01 lot






yes, these were all taken @ the upper part of Skeggs :D

Rode Waterdog yesterday...a little soft in spots but rideable if you can't wait a week...I'd ride Monte Belo if you have the option, it drains a lot better than both and is super pretty right now.

Yeah -- I've been looking at that thread too and so I know "rideable" and "won't cause too much damage" are pretty subjective.

-5'' is a lot and I wonder if the snow makes it more or less muddy than rain?

I went trail running at Skegg's on Monday. Only hit ECDM and Resolution, but both of those trails were pretty firm...I was surprised. Lots of downed trees. Some snow on the ground but only on the sides near the top. Just do loops on the upper trails and you shouldn't be causing too much damage.

In case anyone is curious, I rode at Skeggs this afternoon and it was good. Blue Blossom was fairly wet and had its ussual puddles. Steam Donkey was also fairly wet, but definitely still rideable. Manzanita was great (almost cleaned the whole climb -- one tiny dab on the rock wall...so close) and Resolution/Tafoni was good. So try to get out there before the rain tomorrow!!
