It’s fall now, and that means it’s time for … more windsurfing and kiting! No, silly. It’s time to think about skiing.

Plain old weather

The weather, unless you’re a skier hoping for ski season, is going to be lovely this week. The only exception to weather perfection is Wednesday, when a few high clouds will temper the brilliant blue of the sky. Expect cool nights in the 30’s, a chance of morning inversion clouds, a temperature inversion, meaning if you ride your bike above the inversion, you’re going to find beautiful weather in the 60’s.

Mountain biking

Dirt report: the dirt is perfect from High Prairie down to Sawtooth. There are patches of snow and mud on Gunsight Ridge. Boulder Lake is riding great. Post is perfect. Syncline is perfect. There are chanterelles everywhere.

Events n’ stuff – Please email with upcoming events related to the outdoors

Tomorrow night, Tuesday is Ruins Tuesday, with indoor music and… aw fuck it. Anyone know if those safety-conscious people are still charging a $3 cover? Cover-free, but not animal product free, and definitely not fat free, tomorrow night is $12 Prime Rib night at Cebu.

Coming up Thursday, the 44 Trails Association has a party and fundraiser at Double Mountain. Come celebrate the opening of the SuperConnector trail.

I know there must be other stuff coming up this week, but it hasn’t made it on to my calendar yet. You should tell me if there are outdoor-related events I’m missing.

Have an awesome day today!
