Default 2015 Snow and Pizza Run Sat. Jan. 24th

Ok, the snow is looking nice and deep this year. It should be fun.

Date: Saturday Jan. 24th, 2015
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.

Let have fun!

Here is a picture from last year. But, I'm going to be taking it easy this year. No jumping for me.

Just came back from there.
It was down right hot up there today. And the wind must have been blowing at 60-70mph, it was insane.
There is very little to no snow around Blackhawk/Central City/the cemetary. And what snow is on the road by the cemetery is windswept and glazed with ice.
I made it to the left turn on 7391 with no real problems. But there was a long drift up the first little hill as you enter the trail. I hit it full bore and it was not unlike hitting a brick wall…. The snow has been blown up into 2-3ft drifts one after the other after the other. They're all hard as a rock. Once the weight of the truck breaks through them, it's like trying to drive through wet concrete. After a dozen attempts I had made it up the trail about 30ft and said screw it. Too much of a PITA. I walked up the trail a ways and it just looks like one hard drift after the other.
Looking up towards the mountains it looked as though there wasn't much more snow at higher levels.
I haven't looked at the weather reports for the next couple weeks, but if they don't get any more snow between now and then (which is unlikely) it's going to make for a long day of winching and pulling. Just FYI.
