Some people already have plane tickets, so I can't change the date. :(



You know, Quandary is only a few miles away!!!

I think I'm in. I just booked my flight into DEN and will be renting a car(compact). Will anyone be going from Denver? If the weather is bad, I'm not sure how far my Aveo or whatever will make it. I'll be looking at Sherman and Decalin also if anyone is interested.

Any car can make it to the trailhead of Quandary, not sure about 4 mile creek.

Haven't yet done a winter 14er, love to.
Just wondering is there a snowpacked trail, or are snowshoes the only way.

Ya, I've done Quandary before. I guess I won't be attempting it in the middle of a blizzard any way so valid point.

Depends on if you're the trail breaker or a trench poacher.

Or if you are a big guy like me you can trench the trench with snowshoes since its not completely hardpack yet (or atleast the year i did it)
still a few places to sink up to your waist with the shoes on


any one looking at going up earlier in Jan? cant make the 19th

Missed the winter welcomer as well so I am going to try as hard as possible to make this one!
