Unless you downsize your new set of tires...

Am I missing something, when is the Snow and Pizza run?

Checked the staging area and got nothing.

THanks

Drew

You can make them or buy them from tirechain.com or elsewhere...

Tirechain.com sells that size (click here) for sure, just scroll down on the page to see what they carry.

As for needing them...depends on your use...sometimes even being locked just means you have all 4 tires spinning while going no where . The hunt camp road I drive on can be very bad...So bad that often the only way you can make it in is to wait for the trail to freeze, chain up, and then go in early in the AM before dawn. Of course, I've never been with anyone on the trail that has been locked before or had 38s

January. Scott Yoder (JadeRunner) usually leads and selects a weekend. We run the Yankee Hill area up by Central City. Then we usually hit Beau Jo's in Idaho Springs for pizza and cold refreshing beverages.

FYI, there is also usually a New Year's Day run, which is not the official club Snow and Pizza Run, but has become something of a tradition as well.

The Snow and Pizza Run is usually one of our largest runs of the year. The whole point is blazing through snow and ice. There's a playground where we all work hard to blast through enormous snow banks. This is not a hard core run, unless you break a birfield and have to change it in the snow.


You'll want to make sure you have places to hook a strap, both front and rear. Buy some "gators" to keep your legs dry in a couple of feet of snow. Bring warm clothes, plenty of water and lunch.

Chains are not necessary; most of the club won't have them.

I am locked front and rear, 37s, and have chains for all four. I won't go back, chains are awesome!!

Uncle Ben still kicks my ass in the snow though

Seriously you had me at Pizza run. I have never done any snow wheeling, sounds like another SWEET Rising Sun event

See you there

Drew

It used to be! That was the original concept...first run/celebration of the year. Not quite sure when it became a differant run....probably when it got dubbed as "Scott's" run"! Doesn't really matter as it has always been a biggie and a kick in the butt!

Already getting jazzed up for it! Got my chains fixed, tried and true! Drew, if you check out the trip reports section, my buddy and I ran up there when it snowed about a month and a half ago and took some pics/video

Nevermind I see you already posted up to that trip report...truly a kick in the pants!

I'm never venturing out into the snow without chains again, at least not in the foreseeable future with Brahma.
