Is Granite Basin open this time of year, or did it get snow from the last storm. I was thinking of taking my 13 y/o up to ride it next week. Can't think of a better trail for him to get hooked on riding. If it is open, what are temps mid day?

Fiveo - there's going to be snow after this last storm. I haven't been out there for a week or so, Beersnob was out there after the last storm and had a hard time riding. You want to stay clear of the upper section of 347 going up from Cayuse...the mud mixed with granite chunks really, really sux's!

I rode Dells/Peavine/Lakeshore a couple of days ago and was great! Not sure it would good for your 13 y.o unless you spent some time on the tech stuff. Iron King/Peavine is not technical at all, but might be a fairly dry scenic option. Have fun!

Granite basin is one of the most ridable areas after a storm. Know and avoid the death mud areas, 347, anything around the Williamson Valley Trailhead, and a few short sections at the top of 346. Otherwise, it's mostly sand and drains pretty well. I rode 305 a few days ago and it was pretty marginal in areas. I would say that if you catch it early in the morning while it's frozen it's probably best, but later on some areas get pretty muddy.
