There is riding to be had around Gunsight though, by far the most snow is on that hill than anywhere else in the area..

Anyways, here's what she looks like just outside the lodge down the trail about a mile.
Burger was good though!!

You quit too easy. It gets good back farther...

I bet it does, if you go waaay back.....Cantwell!!
I could seriously ride the wheeler back there right now. Guy at the lodge was saying they were looking good then they got 40 degree weather that wiped them out. Top was windblown to dirt and the back side of monument was rock hard with a peak of snow that was almost not passable. We turned around and played a bit by the lodge.

Utrarider is a good dude. Met him a time or two and rode with him at arcticman. One of his buddies has a cabin up there and I would imagine he has spent plenty of time in Eureka. Back towards Gunsight didn't look too bad but we came through there in the dark and couldn't tell. On the way home we wished we just would have stopped there...

Yeah im sure it gets way better further back past red fox....we got a late start on the day....plus we were a little bummed with the conditions. we noticed the better conditions towards gunsight as well....saw some tracks from the road headed back that way. By then it was getting dark and we were leaving...oh well.

Guys..we(my buddies since I cant ride till these surgeries are taken care of) ride it every weekend..on the north side of the road.....if you get above 4500 ft elevation..snow is pretty epic.....(hint:::::Horsepasture is barely 4500 ft)..yes you have to haul fuel( a 6er on the back, with a straight in ride with no playing till you get in will do it)..as for heavenly ridge..should be good as well (southside)..but it is tough to find a trail up..if you really want to..... go past eureka lodge until you hit the bridge for little nelchina, unload there, run the river south to the big nelchina, then run it south/west till you find a trail going up....and yes Tim(ultrarider) is talking about us..we have 1 cabin/house at the road, one in yacho creek(30 miles back) one in daisy creek and my cabin back on the ridge between the little and big o rivers(50 miles back)..oh and we also have one 80 miles back but we rarely use it in winter.....and its a secret.....yes its pretty crappy down low(under 4500 ft) but we got over 2 Ft(some areas 3+) above 4500 ft 2 weeks ago and its as good as its been riding wise in the last 10 yrs.....
