    Thanks for starting the thread. It's been a gravel bike kind of spring. Quick Q: where do you find that status listing that you shared the image of on the MBT page?

    I made the mistake of trying to ride Bovine on a weekend a couple of years ago when nothing else was open. Friday morning was empty, Saturday morning was damn near parking limited.

    I think I did a screen capture from Facebook.

    Got my GF out for her first trail ride on Sunday, to say it went well would be an understatement! She killed it!

    Were planning to come down for Dirt Diggler this weekend. Sounds like theres just enough opening up to bother bringing bikes.

    Stoked for Dirt Diggler!


    In other local bike news, One Hour of 5th Street is in the spring this year:

    Just like the last three years I'll have free beer and chocolate milk for all spectators and participants. Registration is free, we've got a new race format premiering this year, and we've got an even bigger flock of stoked (and sketchy) youths coming to throw down. Come spectate and check out the raffle, prizes are already stacking up, and all proceeds go to a scholarship fund for young racers. Even if you don't feel like riding, it's pretty wild watching the kiddos throw down!

    Here's the link to the trail conditions report:

    https://www.mountainbiketetons.org/c...ail-conditions

    Rode Channel Lock, Bovine and Southbound Saturday, fully dry. Sharks belly gets muddy as you get towards the N. end. Aspen trail this morning was perfect, but it was probably the busiest I've ever seen it.

    Thanks to everyone who came out for the Dirt Diggler, it was a great success. And kudos to Mitch for making that happen and being such a connector to all our regional neighbors.

    Priorities man! You can always send $100 to the MBT trail fund.

    PSA: MBT shows Ferrin's open, but keep in mind it's pretty nasty up top still. Plan on turning around right when you exit the trees. Also, anyone ridden PuttPutt above the wiggle yet?

    Rode Hagen-Putt Putt Wednesday. Usual (really) small spots of mud, but totally G-T-G otherwise. And it appears that the annual horse jackasses didn’t go stomp it up in the muck this year, bonus. I believe they usually do it once or twice early out of spite, but maybe they just don’t think about it.

    Bumping this thread cause I had to scroll way down to find it. Lots of trail mileage opening up lately. In addition to the regular Teton Valley low hanging fruit, I have ridden a Grove/ Corral/ Red loop, South Fork Horseshoe, and out and back Mahogany. Mail Cabin still has snow and downed trees in the north switchbacks, and it looks like Arrow is clear to the creek. Sounds like FOP is still working on both Phillips trails...

    Nice, thanks for the update. Hopefully I can get up there soon and ride with you guys.

    Thanks for the bump!

    I heard from an unreliable source that South Fork was a mud fest, even when other things were dry. How was it when you rode it?

    Friends rode Phillips Ridge Sunday, said it was good to go, but we do keep getting bursts knocking trees down. Lithium goes if you like walking in snow. Lower section is all clear, no downed trees as of Saturday. Moved three downed trees off the "Phillips Connector" trail that connects Old Pass Road to the Phillips parking lot on Saturday, for folks who like pedaling Jimmy's laps, instead of shuttling.

    I'm pretty stoked on the continued wet weather, keeps refreshing the dirt just as it starts to get crappy.

    I walked through/ around 3-4 mud spots in the usual spots on South Fork Horseshoe. Notably, the horses and motos hadn't torn it up too badly.

    I don't know about Lithium- check the FOP site for that one, but I know for sure that Phillips Ridge and Canyon, plus Arrow/ Snotel, are all good to go. TFR pass bash is this coming Saturday; here's a screenshot

    Heard they cleared Phillips Canyon and Ridge, but that there has possibly been more blowdown since then due to a wind event. In my personal experience, Lithium and Black’s are rarely a go (without postholing) for another week or ten days, July 4th or so seems to be the consistent date. But please post up if anyone has better beta!
