    Thanks SnowShow!

    Too many to count haha. All the classic questions including my favorite: "Is there still snow back there??" Well yeah... you've been staring at it since you left the fee booth... Plenty of silent, slack-jawed stares as well.

    ^^^ I've got that kind of shit when summer skiing St Mary's Glacier.

    "You're skiing??!!!"

    Yeah, there's snow up there...it's a fucking glacier/permanent snowfield!!

    Any additional pics of the line from a bit further back, when you first crest the knoll above the Glacier?

    Looks like a dusting is predicted up high Friday and late next week. Lots of wind too. Fuck, hope that doesn't ruin the foliage.

    Shit, maybe we'll get depth hoar and a layer of leaves on top. How will that affect stability?

    I have ridden Kenosha many times (and may do so on Wednesday), but have you been up there or heard leaf reports?

    I should have clarified that I wasn't looking for generic ride recommendations (and maybe you weren't giving one, maybe you have specific info), I am looking for reports on where the leaves might be going off 5 days from now.

    Took a hike this morning off Mt Evans Road up the Chicago Lakes Trail - the aspens were on fire already.

    Danno, Vail area is still a little ways off from peak. At least a week away.

    You should check out the I-70 thread, a couple hours from the Front Range to Crested Butte would most certainly make the drive-time PR list.

    Danno, have you ridden Meadow Mountain in Minturn? It's one of the best fall rides I've ever done. You can tack on some stuff on the backside of Vail to make it a nice, long full-day ride (like Grand Traverse and Game Creek, which also has amazing aspens) since it's only ~10 miles by itself.

    Yeah. Good aspens up there. Also a good ride in general. The S. side of Kenosha has great aspens but a medicore ride.

    Stuff in Golden Gate State Park and Stauton St. Park also had a good bit of aspen viewing.

    CB is great. But not a day-ride from Denver.

    I've not ridden Meadow Mountain though I've heard of it a bunch, and I know my riding partner has ridden it. On the list.

    It's a grind up a forest road to a beautiful summit with a 4 mile single track decent.

    Maybe I'm spoiled, done it at least a hundred times and would just say meh, but, hey, free cold beer. I live a mile away. You know that.

    Leaves here are 1%. Going to be at least a couple of weeks before blast off.
