Default 2014 Snow and Pizza Run Sat. Jan. 25th

Let's do another one. I think we have it pretty well dialed in by now. The snow conditions for the run are a mystery at this point. Right now I figure the snow conditions are similar to last year where we made it all to the top of Yankee Hill.

Date: Saturday Jan. 25th, 2014
Meeting Time: 9:00 am - Leave at 9:30

Meeting Place: Cemetery area half mile above (west) of Central City-the normal spot. Meet for Pizza at Beau Jo's for pizza in Idaho Springs after the run. Around 4-5 pm.

CB Channel 4 - Ham 146460
Will will air down and/or chain up (if your using chains) at the meeting place. Most elect to not use chains.

Larger built rigs with winches can leave ahead of the main group closer to 9am. This should be a fairly small group.

Difficulty - this run is open to everyone. You just may not get as far as some. The only requirement is to have hard points front and rear for strapping purposes and of course a strap ready to go. A shovel and additional recovery gear is recommended.

Be prepared to stay warm and dry with winter clothing and boots. It can be really cold and windy up there.

Depends on the snow conditions. If you need to stay on top of deep snow, no need for chains. We have found that chains in deep snow dig the rig down to the point you are sitting on your frame.

Conditions? Looks good to me. I left the big drift for you Yoder

It's more fun without chains, sometimes there isn't enough snow for chains, & the best reason.... There's easily 10+ rigs available/willing to pull you out when you're stuck!

Nice work Mike. It looks like it's drifted in pretty good up there.

Chains are good for hard pack icy conditions and not as good for all the other conditions that we usually see. Plus as mentioned not near as fun.

But to stay on 'top' of the snow, wouldn't it require floatation type tires? I can't picture skinny tires being on top of the snow.
