What an awesome time!
Camping at BFE was cold at times, But nothing we couldn't handle and yes the caterers were great, It was nice to have a hot cup of coffee in the morning while teching in on Wed and Thurs, The raffle dinner was superb if you ask me Of course walking out of the raffle a winner certainly helped out
Thanks again for all the great work!
FWIW, BFE is a great spot.

It was an all-round great time! Rising Sun did the usual outstanding job of running the event, raffle and dinner. A big THANK YOU and WELL DONE! from me and all who were with my group.

Pics to come later...left my camera in Crested Butte in the truck. Terry

Back home. Man what an awesome week. Thank you to everyone who put this thing together. And thanks to Tim, Marco, Matt, Bruce and Chris for the fun times before the event. Thanks to Kurt, Paul and the rest of the Wasatch gang who put a lot of work into the overnighter. But most of all, thanks to Marco, Bill, Boyd, Alan, Bruce and Daniel for helping me get off the trail and home. Didnt think I could top last years event, but this year is one for the books. Working through the 600 some photos that I took and will start posting when finished.

And on a side note, Jeremiah came up to me today mentioning something about a sas.

Again Thanks all!!!!!!

Vail Pass has been closed since 8:00 pm this eve due to snow and apparently an eastbound accident.

We are hanging in the Vail parking lot above the Botanical Gardens, est 30 more mins to reopen according to police.

Be safe, especially those who are towing. CO Trip cams show snowpack on the pass still.

CM was awesome

Hope you all made it through okay. We hit Vail Pass at about 2:00pm yesterday on the way home from CM and could not believe how bad it was. Hoosier Pass on CO-9 was even worse because the plows weren't even out and the visibility was horrible.

You all did an outstanding job on the event. My wife has already said she wants to go again next year.

vail was nasty when we went through and there was at least 1 accident on each side. Eisenhower was just wet by the time we went up. The east side was slow even though it not really snowing but it was packed ice. I saw on the news they closed it for the night. I didn't know when that was and hopfully everyone got though but i guess that wasn't the case.

We made it back safe. The roads were perfect when we made it through. It was snowing pretty hard between copper and frisco and the 30 car pileup was minutes after we passed. Ham was awesome as always with up to the minute weather and road conditions. No wifi in camp so not much 'live from CM' this year. I broke a short side axle the first trip out so I relaxed most of the time. Axle from Randy, bearing from Proffits, AAA from Woody, and we were back up to lead Kane Creek Saturday. BFE was a consistent ten degrees colder than Moab so I agree the second week of the permit would be a good call.
