    Great pics & reporting NSFW.
    Also great to meet / ride with you at the GoldPoint Rally last week.

    Hey guys, I'm heading to Steamboat this coming weekend, and I'm thinking of riding these big bike loops from the 2013 rally. Does anyone have GPS tracks they could share so I can load them in for the trip?
    Anyone know if the snow is cleared / these routes are open yet?

    :freaky

    Big Red park, Whiskey Park, Buffalo Pass, up around the Flattops and all that stuff is still snowmobile territory. Trough Road and the some southern stuff should be open.

    Thanks Doug! You don't happen to have any tacks for those roads you're referencing do you?

    sorry, but no. I just live here, don't use a GPS.... they're easy to find on maps.

    Understandable. I was thinking it would be cool to ride some of the routes from the national rally if I can get the tracks and the weather cooperates. Maybe we'll need to change plans and head to warmer climes anyway - it's looking a little iffy.

    yep, supposed to be stormy going into the weekend here. It's nice getting away from the heat here later inthe summer once the snow melts, that's the best time to explore the backcountry around here anyway....
