The Trail Report posted here is for general information only and does not necessarily reflect the Trail Status at the time of your ride or the actual local trail conditions you may encounter. The information is gathered from club volunteers and is valid only at the time of their observation. Their observations may not meet your expectations and the conditions may vary from the time of posting. Conditions may vary with temperature, snow quality, type of terrain and usage. Please exercise caution at all times and be prepared for the unexpected. Remember that the trail is providing an off road experience that has inherent risks which demands constant rider preparedness, vigilance, caution, unimpaired reaction and smart choice.

Steamboat Springs


Open
1A - Dumont Lake to the Towers
This trail runs generally north/south and links the Dumont parking lot to the trails that meet at the Towers at the top of Buffalo Pass. This trail has plenty of meadows to play in, especially along the southern portion of the trail. When in meadows watch for springs and creeks that can keep relatively deep sinkholes open to the ground. Note the two “keep-off” drinking water reservoirs on the western side of the trail, Long Lake and Fish Creek Reservoir. At the top of Buffalo Pass you’ll find the non-motorized Mt. Zirkel Wilderness to the north.

Trail Report
The wind this week has been brutal and blown away any snow that was not packed down. So be very careful out there. Please be gentle to the trails with the throttle it's very thin and hard on the Cats, we can't apply enough pressure to groom it well. The BEACON check signs are at all parking lots so bring your gear and use the check stations. Do your snow dance. Cheers Scherer

Open
1A - Muddy Creek to Latigo
This trail runs north/south from the Muddy Creek parking lot down to Buffalo Park and Gore Pass. This trail is mainly in the trees and has one vast area about halfway to Latigo Lodge called Buffalo park. Plenty of sledding opportunities exist along this trail. Buffalo Park is a great spot to get off of the trail or have your packed lunch. Be cautious of highway traffic when crossing US 40.

Please be gentle to the trails with the throttle it's very thin and hard on the Cats, we can't apply enough pressure to groom it well. We have groomed to Silver Creek and plan on going all the way this week. Avy check stations are at all parking lots so use em. bring your gear, ride smart. Hard to believe but we don't really have enough to groom, but we have and it's hard on the cats. Most all trails have been done with the exception of 1F lower East side of R.E. The lack of snow isn't allowing us to use the equipment properly so bare with us. We need at least 4 more feet. Do your snow dance. Partially groomed to the South Cheers Scherer

Open
1D - Dry Lake to the Towers
This trail runs out of Dry Lake parking lot to the Towers at top of Buffalo Pass. Note that this parking lot is relatively small, and the parking lot and the dirt road (only plowed once per day) leading to the parking lot are not recommended for trailers. The first half of the trail runs through a Winter Back Country permit area, so be sure to stay on designated trails only. Permits are required for travel through the area and can be found at the trailhead in Dry Lake. Watch for additional snow cat traffic on the trail through the Winter Back Country area. Once through the backcountry area, there are plenty of opportunities for challenging sledding on either side of the trail. When off trail, be mindful of avalanche prone terrain and deep drainages that could be difficult to get out of. At the top of Buffalo Pass you’ll find the non-motorized Mt. Zirkel Wilderness to the north.
