I'm in! Glad your OK and equally glad you have a great attitude about the situation! Hope the Cruiser stays intact till you (we) can get it out.

I'm in for pushing, pulling, digging, winch handling...

maybe we should plan on going up there to clean out the snow from inside before it has a chance to ruin everything?

I think you guys hit it on the head; we'd need to get up there and get the snow out before it melts. Given that the cruiser will hold heat, my guess is that snow inside will start melting long before any roads are clear enough to get a rescue team up there. Especially if we get a winter like the last one with lots of warm days and large april snow storms.

Given that, I'm up for a backcountry ski/snowshoe trip, if the avy danger isn't too high. (I've never skied up that way). How hard is it to pull carpet out of an 80? Even doing a good job cleaning out the snow, my guess would be a bunch would still be in there, probably even in some of the places like center console, etc. I'd hate to think of a 60degree interior sitting with wet carpet for a month or something. But if a majority of the snow could be cleaned out in early spring, the wind tends to die down, so maybe that would stack the odds in the favor of less or minimal damage.

Glad everyone made it out ok!

Maybe we should get a tarp to wrap around it too? Just in case a window is broken or something it should help...

Don't do a tarp. It will get destroyed and then flap all over the paint and destroy it. Tape it shut with collision repair plastic. Double up the layers to make it stronger.
