Default Grand Lake/Grand Mesa conditions

I am planning to come from Minnesota to find some snow. Grand Lake is the shortest trip from here. How is the riding this year?

Any snow in Grand Mesa?

Here on the Mesa the riding is pretty good. We need snow like everywhere else, but given the huge size of the Mesa there is always places that have not been touched. I rode Monday all day and found lots of fresh powder in the trees. The meadows are getting set up nicely but not much fresh in the open. Still worth the trip out here. Knowing where to go is the key right now.

Our group just booked a trip to the Mesa the second week of March. We are staying at TML. Snow does look thin according to the snotels in the area, less than 3 ft. Any info on actual snow depths would be great. Also what are the average conditions like in March? Cooke in March is some of the best riding, however being so much further south has me a little concerned?

Anyways the countdown is on.

My family's business, The Rapids Lodge (970) 627 3707 has a wide variety of lodging choices and a nice restaurant. Give us a call. www.therapidslodge.com

It's been EXTREMELY COLD lately here in Grand Lake for the past week or two. Somewhere between -20F and -30F in the mornings. Most days have not gotten above 0F (it is January I guess). The snow is 'ok' but we need at least one more good DUMP, normally you can ride from town (legally) to the trail system, but the trail is currently closed due to lack of snow in a 'wetland area' so you have to trailer to one of the local trailhead/parking areas unless you rent from 'On the Trail'. The trails are well groomed and well marked. There's plenty of places to eat/drink in town, as well as a Polaris Dealer (Spirit Lake) and two fuel stations. There's a SkiDoo/Cat dealer (Power World) in Granby 15 miles away. Hope this helps.
