Hello-
I have never ridden down there, but given the majority of the front range is under snow, I was wondering if the trails will be ridable by this weekend? Thanks for helping a newb out.

It doesn't look good right now for this weekend. There is a lot of snow now that will take several days of high temps to melt, and there is more snow in the forecast. They are calling for snow on Thursday:madman: , Saturday:madman: , and Sunday:madman: :madman: . Keep your fingers crossed maybe the stars will align. Maybe making plans to ski next weekend is probably the best bet.

yeah. that's sort of what I was figuring. I got a new frame I can just spend some time building up a little.

Funny how during ski season I want to bike, and in bike season I want to ski.

Muddy

It rained most of the day on Thursday, today is starting out sunny ( will not be enough to dry the trails). I wouldn't ride at the lake this weekend. Give it some time and stick to winter sports like road biking.

This is really cool if it's updated. But it has said the same thing for three days. Three inches of snow doesn't stay on the ground for three days in Pueblo. Even in February.

I won't go there if it's going to be muddy, but need real info to avoid that.

I update the SCTB Website, Trail Conditions, every morning at 6:00am, so the information is fairly accurate. Pueblo has continued to receive small snow additions this week that have kept the snow on the ground longer than usual. The ground is currently very wet and will take several hours of sun to dry. The canyons will take longer. So...check the date on the trail conditions, they should be accurate. xtreme-designs

In case some one has not said it recently, "Thank you for the trail updates!" I have not made it down there to ride the Lake Pueblo trails yet, but it is certainly high on my list, and I appreciate being able to check conditions prior to every weekend...

Please realize that I appreciate the updates. And I know it can be quite a burden to keep up with that.

Kind of critical for me because I'm starting a new job next week which will end all my weekday freedom. I need a singletrack fix very badly before returning to the cubicle.

Also, I really really have no interest in riding in that adobe clay you have down there when it's wet.

Looks like Wednesday might work if there isn't any more appreciable moisture, you think?

Pueblo conditions.

The South Shore trails are drying quickly with the current conditions sunny and 50+.
Wednesday will probably be the transition day between mud and dry in the open areas.

Shaded areas and the lower trails may be wet for another day or two. The weekend is shaping up to be perfect.

Thursday rather than Wednesday?

I was thinking of tomorrow (Wednesday) but it sounds like you would encourage Thursday instead? Do you think Thursday is a safe bet??
