forecast

Forecast for this storm is all over the place. 1 source is showing that South Dakota could get 3-4'. That same source shows 3' for Cheyenne and 2' for the mountains. Other sources show closer to 12" for the range
Heading out Thursday so im hoping its closer to the 2-3' range

Spent the day around Sand lake, North and West. Fun day but tricky with 1' fresh on top of concrete. Ton of base left.

legal sled season

Even if there is lots of snow cover, isn't there a cutoff date that does not allow sledding beyond that point? I remember a buddy telling me that he went sledding in May a few years ago, after a late season blizzard. All the trail markers had been removed.

I beleive the sled sticker is good thru June 30th.

All trail markers and queally hut were removed last month. This was north of 130. Assume the same is true south of 130.

Days are longer so no need to get up there early unless there is a lot of fresh snow the night before.

inches with locally higher amounts in excess of two feet
possible at mountain top level.

So, nobody has been up to the mountain since May? Just wondering what the snow conditions are. Usually, local people are posting by now. Maybe I'm not reading the new forum correctly.

Called Albany lodge yesterday, had a big dump a couple weeks ago that is settling into a nice base. Said there has been a few people riding, lots of land mines. Supposed to snow Wednesday and Thursday this week. I am heading up Sunday riding out of Green Rock and will give an accurate update.

Snow was thin, good to get a little trail riding in to check/test a couple things I worked on over the summer. Off trail was land mine city! Still needs a few good dumps before it will be good, calling for 12-24" tonight, do your snow dance!
