    I hate riding after a storm. My bike gets muddy and there's no dust so I can't follow anyone.

    I would if I could, but.... No. Snow line is forecast to be 7500-8000', the lower stuff should be good.
    You FF's have fun.

    Perry I thought it was over for the season. Is this pretty typical ? Is Dec riding normal at the lower elevations up there ?

    It's not over till it's over....DEEP snow and locked gates close the higher elevation stuff. There's always some lower elevation riding in the foothills.:D


    this was taken 1-1-2012 note the plow marker, this is above 7000'

    They close these trails for a reason.
    It DAMAGES the trails!!

    Isn't it funny how some guys preach to others about protecting the trails...

    They go on telling others how to ride.
    "Dont use you brakes going down hill" Really!! are you serious?? :huh

    "We only run trials tires to protect the trails"

    on and on.... with their riding rules!!

    And then they ride closed and illegal trails in the rainy season leaving behind trail ruts and other damages.

    HYPOCRITES..!!
