    Details:  Theo trails should be good to go...but likely icy. Please use caution...especially in the tasty fast areas in New Theo and Glenwood.

    Details:  Packed snow with quite a few spots of glare ice in low spots. Studded if you have them are helpful, but rideable without.

    Details:  Nice conditions out there on N and S loops! Mostly packed although not a whole lot snow so some dirt showing (especially on S loop). Some icy patches here and there as well but great riding as a whole. Get a ride in before warmer temps come!

    Details:  With the warm temps yesterday afternoon things could be icy in places today. If you go out to get your Theo on, please use caution and stay off if the temps happen to climb above freezing!


    Happy riding!

    Details:  Rode the entire loop yesterday. Trail was really nicely packed on all sections!! Skinny's should be just fine.

    Note that the cross country trails are in full operation so make sure to look for skiers, especially the first crossing after the Luce Line (look right as skiers are moving fast coming down the hill).

    Details:  Rode the North Loop last night, the conditions are excellent. 1" of snow over packed base. The trees cut the wind making for a comfortable ride. Get out and enjoy the great conditions.

    Trail Condition: Fat

    Details:  The snow is loose so I should have changed to deeper fat bike treads. I rode Surly Nards and I should have used my Nates.

    Details:  The North and South loops are pretty well packed. It is still very Icy underneath in spot. Glenwood and SW only had a few tracks and still very slippery. Best left for more experienced riders.

    Details:  Given the warm temps forecasted for the next three days and the lack of snow cover at Theo we are calling all trails CLOSED until we get more snow and sub-freezing temps.


    Severe damage was caused in many sections by a few selfish people did during last weekend's warm-up.


    Don't be one of those people. Please stay off all sections until you hear differently. Stay tuned here or the Conditions section on the MORC Forums.

    Details:  Thank you JP!

    Just updating to "Packed". The "Fat" designation is confusing to some so we do NOT use the "Fat" designation at Theo. Some might take "Fat" as a requirement rather than a recommendation.

    Theo is the poster child for Multi-use. If it is open...it is open to all.

    Thanks again for for taking the time to post the thorough update JP.

    Details:  Rode Theo tonite on 12.17 after it snowed just 1.5" and the trail is really nice.....yes everything melted over the last few days but then it got cold luckily the moist ground re-froze just before it snowed the paltry 1 or 2" that we got....so picture frozen trail but with 1.5" of soft white fresh stuff to cushion things....really fun, epic traction, but yes could use a few more inches of snow to make it perfect. Some skinny tire mtn bikers did try to ride the trail during the warm melt-down we had which totally ruined the trail for the first 200 yards or so until they realized they were not having fun or were ruining the trail, but whatever let's not hate on the dumb-dumbs as they probly don't realize the damage they do. Here's a pic of the trail tonite....I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars. Trails are Open, go MORC!
