    Might be able to get away for a while, even if I just meet you for a couple weeks of it. PM me the details!

    Sorry but this is one of those trips that you're in for all of it or none of it. Cannibal and Genuine draft might be able to talk you into it.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Sounds great. This is going to turn into one of the Epic trips. Keep working on Brandan and Alta.

    food sent me this in a PM...wanted to open up this thread for discussions on location as well, though. No reason to keep his good ideas private!

    High points away from cold air drainages is good in the winter.

    Full moon walks in the snow are magical.

    I am not familiar with the south part of the state, but Tennessee Pass has a lot of facilities:

    10th Mountain Division Continential Divide Cabin would be a good place to socialize and bail to. There are backcountry ski trails and plenty of hanging places around the cabin.

    Across Tennessee Pass are both alpine and nordic ski facilties. And I have heard good things about the Tennessees Pass Cookhouse.

    I'm pretty sure Rampart Range Road is maintained but I'll confirm before we make plans, if that's where we choose to go. Rampart Range Road is dirt but well maintained in three-seasons, and I've driven on it in winter with a standard 4WD.

    I'm not tied to a location though...if y'all have somewhere near and dear to you, let's hear it!

    hwy 14 is always plowed, it goes all the way up to cameron pass and then down the other side towards steamboat springs. there are several trailheads and big parking lots there along the hwy. it's nice country up near the pass. i haven't hiked many of the trails though, but access to them is on paved rd. i'm all for a car camp type campout as well, what were you guys thinking? the rmnp stomp (which cannibal and i both almost went to but didn't) had a long hike in. i wouldn't mind getting some snowshoes, might be kinda fun. i'm up for whatever though

    I'm thinking a mile or so hike in would be good...just like Mt Rogers. Wouldn't be completely opposed to a car camp, though. I hope it's good showshoe weather...I plan on buying a set shortly after we get there.
