It started dumping here in Gunnison Colorado today so I am 100% certain I am going to Moab this weekend if the conditions are good. Has it snowed there at all? What is slickrock, soveriegn, amasa etc like? Its a 4hr drive so its not that bad, plus i want to ride incredibly bad so as long as its above 20degrees i dont care!

let me know im looking at driving out tomorrow at noon. thanks

Until this evening conditions were perfect. We got a dusting of snow this evening over the course of a thirty minute shower -- less than 1/2 " that should be mostly cleared off in the next few days. The sky clear now as it will be this weekend. I imagine Amasa will be fine tomorrow, as well as the usual SW exposure trails (Gold Bar, etc.)

Hope that helps.

I'm thinking the same thing..Colorado has been dumped on this winter and if I don't go for a real ride here soon I'm going to bust. I spoke to a guy at poison spider and he said the same thing about the dusting..since it's cold it won't melt to fast but Sunday will be at least 50 with sun so that sounds pretty good to me.
Sounds like Slick Rock will fer sure be riding as it's so exposed. Soverign may have snow in the north facing spots though, but it doesn't sound like they got much so you could probably ride through or over it.

Lookin Good

Another blue bird day in Moab with breathtaking views. Sometimes it is hard to ride when the scenery is so spectacular, but I did do Sovereign this afternoon and the trail is clear other than the 2 north facing hills. From afar looks like slickrock is probably good to go. Saw some people driving down from slickrock with bikes on their vehicles and they were smiling. It just doesn't get any better than this.

Porky is closed, too much snow and ice unless you're prepared to ride through and over that kinda stuff, but Soverign is riding good and if you're looking for a longer ride try Amasa with all the singletrack off of it up top.
We were there this past weekend and it was perfect, so nice to see the ground again.
We were in shorts and long sleeves..Slick Rock was awesome, noone around really..
Nows the time.

Amasa Back starts on Cane Creek road, down by the McDonalds. It begins as a dirt jeep road and climbs out of the canyon. Stop in at Poison Spider bike shop (main street) and the guys there will give you the skinny on the ride.

sorry for the confusion

I know where amasa back is, in fact we hit it up two weekends ago, linked it up to moab rim and hidden valley--I was curious where the singletrack part is, it seems like it is plenty wide-looking for some local beta
