    Check out the camera at the Eisenhower Tunnel and you'll understand why I didn't want to be on the road:

      It would have been nice if you'd posted little earlier. I'm at the pnr. But it isn't your fault.

      Good call Terry, it was a complete mess when I drove back up to Leadville (eastbound)...westbound was nasty but far less traffic...

    It's probably best that you cancelled. I heard 4-8" new snow and 50 mph winds. I don't recall if there are many lodge pole up there (not right next to the road up the gulch) but we have to be concerned about falling trees. Next time! Happy New Year all!

    I hate to do this but I've been watching the weather reports and cameras up at the tunnel. Once we get into the mountains, I-70 is described a snow, icy, snowpacked. If there's accidents, we could be trapped on the road for hours. So this trip is cancelled.

    HI, I would like to snowshoe tomorrow. Is this possible and are there others?

    December 31, 2013

    • Terry G.

      Kris, I'm going to snowshoe and I'm pretty sure that there will be others.

    A couple quick notes about tomorrow's hike:

    There should be cooler temperatures and some light snow tomorrow morning so dress appropriately.

    Please note that we've changed the carpool location. If you're headed West on I-70, take the Ward Road exit and go straight across the light into the PnR. Going East, take the Ward Road exit and circle to the right around the truck stop.

    I drive a white Ford Escape. If there's any problems, my cell is[masked]-6284. See you tomorrow.

    • Terry G.

      We should be there by 9:45.

    I came down with something so I'm out. Maybe next time.

    This seems like fun, just got a pair of snowshoes and looking for folks to join. Would this be ok for a beginner?

    December 26, 2013

    • Terry G.

      Yes. It's an easy trail and you can go at your own pace.

    Just changed our rsvp to no :( Our son broke his collarbone, so we agreed to stay down the mtn with him over new years to help him out. We love Mayflower gulch in the summer, so can't wait to trek up it in snow another time.
