    I'm definately interested... but I need more details to make a decision... and my son lives in Denver, he is a hanger, he'd probably be interested too...

    More details please...

    How long of a trip? Weekend? Long weekend? Longer?

    How much hiking? (Jeff said about a mile... ?) Car camping? Snow shoeing?

    Friday to Sunday, either car camping or ~1mi hike in...snowshoe depends on where we finally decide to go, I guess.

    With the amount of snow that will be on the ground, I kind of doubt the camp will be too far from the vehicles. Snow shoeing ain't for everybody and it should be fun for all!
    Gonna have to trick out my pulk. Gotta get me some stickers.

    depending on work schedule at that time, which should be light, i may be able to make this one also. cannibal I would love to snowshoe, but I would have to strap 4x8 sheets of plywood to my feet. I don't know if any of you guys have tried to find shoes rated for 350lbs +, it ain't easy.

    Good point about the snowshoeing...maybe we should make it near the cars. I do want to get away from developed areas, though. Maybe on a Jeep trail somewhere? We could do 4x4 shuttles from a nearby parking lot or something.

    I'd be VERY long shot. My daughter (who lives in Crested Butte) is wanting me to come visit...and if I do, it may work to tie this "hang" to one end of a visit with her.

    Bottom line, I'm a distant "maybe", but that's better than a "no"

    Cold, but it's a 'dry' cold.

    In the area Just Jeff is talking about around Pike National Forest in Feb and March, lows will be around 0 to 10 with highs in the 30s and 40s. The daytime highs will feel much warmer when in the sun. I've been out in shorts in the 30s and not cold as long as I'm in the sun. Nights aren't too bad because of the lack of humidity, but if the wind kicks-up, it can be downright cold.
