    I am coming down from Boulder and would find it easier to meet near Golden, considering morning traffic. I drive a 4wd Ford f-150, if that works for anyone else? Also, I need to be back down by 5:00 for an evening commitment. Does that sound like a reasonable time frame?

    I can meet others in Idaho Springs, if any one would like to car pool with me. I drive a Toyota FJ, & my cell is[masked]

    I'm considering this meet up but will leave earlier to miss ski traffic and I am south of I-70. I will be staying in Avon on Friday & Sat. Jan. 11 & 12. If anyone wants to avoid the snow storm on Friday & stay overnight, please let me know, I would love to share the costs of the hotel room. I also have snowshoes to share for the day as I would xc ski-they would fit someone 5'5 or shorter, less than 130 lbs. Let me know. Thank you, Kerry

    Do we need to bring our own snowshoes? If so, where's a good, cheap place to rent them?
