Anyone going on any runs, preferably in Colorado or New Mexico, around November 6-9? Even if you can't make it, any suggestions on good trails to go on?

San Juans in SW CO is nice. Near Silverton/Ouray/Telluride/Animas Forks. I have done trails out there a couple times. The trails are: Black Bear Pass, Engineer Pass, Ophir Pass, Cinnamon Pass, Corkscrew Gulch, (Alpine Loop for a few of those).

Might be a little snowy on the high mountain passes in Colorado by then

Any idea when they normally start becoming impassable?

Right. Just giving him an area.

I am unsure on when they become impassable, ak49. There are a few websites that update trails conditions and status.

Yeah you're missing the optimal time to go in the high country which is sept/oct...we're already getting snow in the high country, so a lot of trails are still passable, but not for long. By Nov it's a no go for most of those, but still plenty of stuff in CO you can ride, just not a lot over 10,000ft.
