Question Snow report?

Looking to get out for some dirt tomorrow. How about some snow reports?
I was thinking Penrose, but they supposedly got more snow down there. So any suggestions?
Whats 4 mile like up by BV? Did they get snow up there?

Rampart is probably snowed in. My wife heard that Cuchara got more snow than we did, so the south may not be good. JJustJ chimed in this morning and said they didn't get any new snow in the high country (Dillon) so you might think about there.

Fairplay had about 2 inches, but it is gone. Was out last Weekend and up to tree line there are patches here and there in the shaded areas, but many ridable areas. Above treeline is covered of course as you can probably see from down there.

We got about 8" up here between Woodland Park and Divide. I'm thinking you need to be below 8k in this area.

Not going to make it out today. Hopefully tomorrow. Thanks for the reports. Looks like Canon City got about .56 of an inch, and only got down to 37F. So might be good down around Penrose. But I need to be back early, so that might not work.

More snow today in Parker. I am assuming Sedalia/Rampart was hit. Man, this season is not looking good.

I left Denver about 2pm on the SV in a snowstorm. It's a little odd to be riding along and getting passed by a snowplow on I-25 Clear & dry in the Fort.

This guy rode 717 yesterday, it's looking pretty sloppy and I'm sure there's been more snow since then.

Sitting here about 4-500' above 717 I can say we got 7". It snowed till just past dark.

High 30's and 40's today so it's gonna get sloppy.

Too bad too because I finally got the 450 back together (ok almost, I still gotta mount new tires ) and bugwife and I have some time off this week.

We gotta go ride somewhere Tuesday or Wednesday.

Any ideas?

I'm hoping 4 mile is still ridable. If not, i see several trips to Utah in my future.
