    Put me down for a large t shirt and I will hopefully be coming up with the whole family again, everyone liked the resort last year and visiting Zion.

    Ahhhhh, that sounds like a fun one. Are you on highway 89 from kanab to House Rock Road? We do a ride from Glendale to Cottonwood Canyon to House Rock Road that adds a bunch of fun dirt. Maybe to much milieage?

    Hello Everyone,
    I spent the holiday weekend up at Zion Ponderosa with the family. I didn't get any riding in but I did have a chance to explore a bit. Trails are looking good at higher elevations. Very little snow left. A bad year for snow, but a great year for riding!
    I look forward to seeing everyone.

    Fire restrictions are in place already and so I thinking that I will move the group from last years camp site to the main group area near the end of the Zip Line. This will allow us to use the fire pits. Also much closer to the toilets, showers and pools.

    This location will also allow easy access for all trailers, RV's and large vehicles.

    I rode/explored dirt between Winter Road and 89 near Kanab last week (popped out on 89 by Johnson Wash). Some deep sand near the north end by 89 but "untracked".......just skimmed along the top......felt like I was snowboarding/surfing.....good fun......two gates but both were unlocked......

    Navajo Trail is a good "Big Bike" dirt road between Fredonia and St. George but that's probably too far west if trying to loop back to the Ponderosa......Hell's Backbone between Escalante and Boulder is another good "Big Bike" loop along with the Burr Trail.....but probably too far east....

    Agreed. :D

    Logged ~1200 miles last week between Mesquite and areas north of Lake Powell.......no issues with snow even up on Hell's Backbone between Boulder and Escalante........that surprised me......"bone" dry :lol3

    You can take off from Navajo trail to CR5 into Colorado City then through either a) Coral Pink Sand Dunes, or b) the Gooseberry Mesa road then up through Zion.

    Hey guys, looking foward to meeting and riding with yall. A group of us from Miss. are coming to join the fun and wondering what might you expect for temps during the day. Sounds like with the mileage your riding there will be high and lower altitudes envolved.

    Day temps will range from low 70's in the mountains to low 100's in the lower elevations. The low 100's are dry and are tolerable while you are moving. Drink lots of water! If it rains in the mountains you could get a chill while riding when wet so bring rain gear just in case.

    Hello,

    T-Shirt designs should be done by the end of the week. PLEASE let me know if you want one and size! Pricing will be dependent on the size of the T-Shirt order. Everyone pays cost for the T's. I would expect between $11.00 and $15.00 for a T-Shirt and a sticker.

    Thanks
    Jesse

    Thanks for all your prep work jesse....if I remember right, the group area in the field has almost no tree cover, which is a really nice option when it's hot... :knary but whatever you think best... looking forward to it.... too much work and other life stuff, not enough riding lately...
