In Colorado only or everywhere?I've only ever camped in the east during winter, so I was wondering what kind of elevations others had camped at.
Here are the five highest elevations that I have camped in Colorado in winter:
1. 12,000 at Fourmile Creek (approach to Mt. Sherman) on January 18-19 2013.
2. 11,860 on Mount Yale on March 7-8 2008.
3. 11,750 at Pacific Creek (approach to Crystal Peak) on January 7-8 2011.
4. 11,560 at Fourmile Creek (approach to Mt. Sherman on December 22-23 2006.
5. 11,400 in Horn Fork Basin (approach to Mt. Harvard) on March 18-19 2011.
For all practical purposes, my camp at 11,540 near Hoosier Pass (approach to Mt Silverheels) on December 9-10 2005 was a winter camp as well and may take the #5 spot if you aren't picky about calendar vs. meterological winter.
It could be done, but just climbing the Colorado 14ers in winter is not an easy task so I don't think it will be done anytime soon. With the right equipment, you can sleep on top of the 14ers in winter, if you really wanted to.Is it feasible for good old Jon to sleep on the summits during winter
