Well probably not until the snow melts. Its more work to get there right now than most vandals will go through.

Bummer for the owner, hopefully all is well and no one got hurt in the process of getting back. I would hope that there was another vehicle with them or more to help.

How hard would it be to retrieve it now? As long as the drifts aren't to bad we should be able to get some small trucks up there to create a "tow chain" of vehicles. Would be an interesting rescue mission.

I would say impossible without a snow cat. The wind hits the pass hard up high making the snow level look lower than it really is. Lower down on the Summit CO side I'm sure the snow is deep. I've never gone down the east side personally but I'm sure the snow is the same there too.

I really wonder how long it's been there... does the FS have any more info on when it was approximately abandoned?

Maybe next year at this time, you guys will be talking about an abandoned 100 series from Missouri that some Denver dude left up on the pass.

Maybe but only if they want to drive over all that rock. But yes forgot about them. I don't recall if you can run a sled up Webster though. Last time I toured up there all the slednecks were south of there.

So apparently that 80 belongs to a neighbor of one of my coworkers

Apparently all the authorities have been made aware of the vehicle, and they are just waiting until spring to get it out.

What is the back story? Dead battery, ran out of gas, got tippy and walked?
