Just curious why you made the switch.
I was definitely looking forward to staying there, but we aren't bringing the kids any more, and we went with a smaller/cheaper room.

Re: FJ Summit 2019 (July 17-21)

Looks like my job is moving out of state and I can't make the Summit. I'm just outside the window to cancel my room (and Summit registration), so I'm hoping to find someone interested in the reservation. I have a two bedroom, pet friendly, riverview room at the Twin Peaks Lodge. Sleeps six on three queen sized beds. My reservation is July 17-21. Total is $1608.52 all in, including $100 pet fee, which you could likely drop. This is right in the heart of all the action. Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks!!

LOL...places in northern Colorado (Park Range and Never Summer) just got 18+" of snow overnight.

Fortunately, I dont believe the San Juans saw any of this snow. But for those people that might want to hit some of the northern 4WD roads and trails while they are out here....check the conditions first.

Very interesting reading. Especially all the comments and posts following that link. I live in Western Colorado and have seen the conditions. The OP in the link called them UGLY. Hes right.

Yes, the quote or language is from a newslettter sent out by Jeff Slavens of Slavens Racing down in Colorado Springs not from the OP. Jeff's company serves a lot of the offroad parts and accessories market for KTM and Husky dirt bikes and is pretty well known. Colorado is unfortunately becoming known as dirt bike nirvana for a whole lot of people around the country and a bunch of people make their annual pilgrimage to Colorado in the summer months (just like the FJ Summit). He and others have been trying to give people heads up that things are bad and they need to wait if possible.

His last message was not well received by people from out of state looking to visit (you know how it goes....took time off work, coordinated with friends, spouse, family, reserved hotels, etc) and a few louder keyboard warriors pitched a fit. But, conditions are conditions, so Jeff and others keep reminding people. Same as we are doing here about the FJ Summit. Only difference is that the cities/counties down in SW Colorado are working hard to get things open for FJ Summit but it wont be as accessible as a typical year. Singletrack dirtbike and mountainbike trails...there is no one to shovel or plow them and with all the beetle killed timber, you can have hundreds if not thousands of deadfall trees blocking the trails that need to be cut through.

Most other places in Colorado, don't have counties/cities trying to plow open the backcountry and many of the other passes such as TinCup, Cumberland, Tomichi, Marshall, Old Monarch, Cottonwood, Hagerman, Schofield, Hanc*ck, Pearl, Taylor, Buffalo, Boreas, Georgia, Webster, Mosquito, Hayden, Medano, Hermit etc are never plowed by heavy equipment....just cut through in places by Jeepers and other back country enthusiasts. Along with plenty of other backcountry routes. My interest here is for people coming from elsewhere to understand some of these other places may not be passable by mid/late July.

Im one of those mountain bikers that clears trails. It has kept us busy with a lot more to come as trails melt out.

I am getting there early, I think the 11th. Anyone else willing to run around and look for open trails.

My wife and son were in Ouray over the weekend. I was supposed to go with them but I injured my back again and stayed home to let it heal. They had a lot of trouble finding open trails to hike in the Ouray and Ridgway area, they said that either snow or avalanche debris had most of the hiking trails or the roads to their trailheads closed.

I will be in Ouray July 14 to July 18. I don't mind joining you if you are still looking for trails around those dates. I would even do a night run now that I got a local shop did a custom work on my car with their own idea. I went there for them to install my lights the way I wanted, they ended up convincing me about a one of a kind look on my SUV that cannot be found by any other nowhere.






Link to my thread of the install of my custom lights that I bought all the way from STEDI lights in Australia: 8.5" STEDI Type-X Pro OFFROAD LED in my 2012 Infiniti QX56 grill
