Default Triple Bypass 2007

The 2007 Triple Bypass run is tentatively scheduled for August 18th this year. That could change due to snow conditions and we'll update as the trip date nears.

This is our 8th annual trip. The run begins at the Dorchester Campground at the north end of Taylor Park, over Italian Creek Pass into Crested Butte, over Pearl Pass into Ashcroft, then over Taylor Pass and back to the Dorchester Campground. This trip includes over 50 miles of 4 wheel drive travel and is run at a fast pace. Departure time from Dorchester is 8:00 AM. A stock cruiser in good mechanical condition with a competent driver will make this trip just fine.

What about a squeaky 4runner with a questionably competent driver and a can do attitude ?

Hey guys, any update on the dates for the run?

I was totally wrong about CEDIA... it IS in Denver again this year, but not during the run.

CEDIA dates are Sept 5th - 9th

Still considering coming out special for the run so updated itinerary would be helpfull!

Hope everyone is well! My 40 just got back from the Outer Banks on a beach trip! (7 hrs each way.... with earplugs!)

sorry for the huge pics, but I couldn't get the smaller or they started looking real bad

Default Update June 22, 2007

Called my Crested Butte contact this afternoon to get current road conditions on Pearl Pass. Her guess is the pass will be closed due to snow for another month. At 12,705 feet in elevation, Pearl is typically the last one of the three passes to be clear of snow. From what information I was able to gather today, all three passes, Pearl, Taylor, and Italian Creek Passes are currently closed due to snow. Once Pearl is free of snow, we should be good to go.
