Moab / Green River - winter conditions?

Anyone have weather beta on Moab or the Swell area right now? Thinking about getting in some 5MOH this weekend.

Snow? Current day/night temps?

I'm heading out there myself the day after Christmas, so I've been following the weather sites.

Doesnt look too bad.

Bleh... I wanted someone to tell me "sunny and 50's all week". That's colder than the Boulder forecast.

Moab looks dry today, 70% chance of snow/rain tomorrow, Mid to upper 40's over the weekend, another storm expected monday.

Most restaurants still blow.

Most of the beer is 3.2 also but I've heard there is pretty good music once in a while...

The trick with the beer is to ask for the "other" beer menu at Moab brewery. This bad boy is 8.6% alcohol, and you get to keep the bottle. They even give you a frozen marble coozie at the table.


I'm planning on riding out there Saturday, just going to bundle up!!

That's Mrs. Princess Pumpkin to you buddy.

Gotta think about this stuff. Even 5MoH gets chilly at a sustained 3rd gear trail pace.

Great tip. I totally forgot about the UTarded alcohol restriction.

Sorry Ms. Pretty Princess Pumpkin, I'm busy this weekend, but after that I'd be down for some 5MOH. Never been... Wanna go...

Bunch of silly banter. I think this weekend will be killer! Hero sand, dried to glue like clay, sandstone will be....sandstone I guess. I think I'm riding on Fri. and Sat. then heading to AZ.

They even have cans of real beer now! 15 cent wings Mon-Wed. and $5 any burger on the menu Thursday. You guys are late by about 3 days we were enjoying 45-55 highs, sunny with little wind through Dec.

Snow here now. I'd say very unlikely you guys can ride 5moh next week, it's 3000' higher than moab if I remember right.
