It is unbelievable how much snow is falling in Golden these days. We just finished a major storm cycle and are now into another one. While snow is awesome the real treat might just be the high-pressure system full of sunshine and clear skies forecast for this weekend and next week. The colder temperatures won’t even feel like a speed bump with all the fresh snow we have out there.
How it’s Been
We have had non-stop snow since last week. There was as short break from Monday morning to Tuesday afternoon but it’s been white-room before and since. What does that mean? Lots of fresh power to be had. The bad driving means that it’s pretty much been only locals riding in our areas and the highway closures should keep it fresh for this weekend.
After this storm cycle passes were looking toward a high-pressure system (read colder temps and sunny skies) for the next few days. With less precipitation in the forecast make sure you get it while the getting is good.

With all the fresh snow the hazard is HIGH. Take it easy out there, keep your heads up and look to hit the bigger lines once the forecast settles down with a bit of cold weather coming down the pipe.

Using a VHF radio on active logging roads is an essential part of having a safe day. Please watch our road safety video to learn more.
Economic Impact Study
Don’t be surprised if you are asked to fill out a survey at one of our trail heads. We are conducting an Economic Impact Study this winter. We’re hopeful the results of this study will help us get more funding to continue to make snowmobiling infrastructure better. Thank you for your patience.
GT OR DIE: Great news! We’ve announced Saturday April 14th as the date for this year’s GT or DIE races! It’s going to be a good time and there’s expanded events for kids during the early part of the day.
