Frisco-Vail bike path

Postby PaliKona » Tue May 07, 2013 6:36 pm

Does anyone know if the path is clear to Copper and higher?

I was looking at it on the way back from Moab on Sunday (5/5). It is completely snow-covered from the top of Vail Pass all the way to Copper. It looked like there were dry patches between Copper and Frisco, but I still saw snow in places.

There was an avalanche on and around the Three Tiers area between Officer's Gulch and Copper. I couldn't tell if it made it down to the bike path or not. I'll take a closer look the next time I drive by.

I saw this the other day, pretty large debris field. Wasn't looking for detail on the path itself, though...
I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything, but if we don't keep moving on that last hill, we'll never know what's on the other side.

The slide did not reach the bike path but was very close. As of this morning it was dry from Frisco to Breck and mostly dry between Frisco and Copper. HOWEVER, its been snowing pretty hard for the past few hours.
