Myself and a few buds are planing on riding the COBDR starting around the 12th of July, we have heard that Colorado has an above average snowpack from this winter and that some of the high mountain passes might not be open. I tried the ridebdr site and although it does have a map with a view snow levels tab it doesn't have a legend (or at least I couldn't find it) suggesting what the pretty colours they displayed mean. It does say that due to high snow levels Cottonwood pass will more than likely not be open till mid August and gives an alternative route. My question is can any of you locals or previous riders give us some insight on if the other high alpine riding/passes will be open by July 12th this year? Any resources we could check. Thanks for your help.
