Mt Evans Road conditions. Late afternoon yesterday (Monday 11/16) I pedaled the fat bike from the gate closure to the summit. There is a lot of new snow and drifts, especially in the first 3 miles. In some places I pushed & wasn't able to ride through. After about Mile Marker 5 there is only partial drifts extending into the road and then higher up the road is (mostly) blown clear. A lot of the big gaps and breaks in the road were recently repaired and sealed up, especially around Summit Lake which is Mile Marker 9. The drifts that will grow big enough to block the road are forming at Mile Marker 12. The Crest House thermometer showed 27 degrees at 10:56 pm.
PS. I tried out a new set of Maxxis Minion series snow tires which work pretty well and I ran the minimum 8 psi in them.
