Was going to but my girlfriend couldn't get off work. I climbed Pikes many years ago on New Year's Eve and watching the fireworks from up there was pretty cool. Being a few thousand feet above them was neat to watch. The Manitou Springs ones were the closest I think, then a couple different shows in Colorado Springs. I could see probably at least 10 different shows from as far south as Pueblo all the way north to Denver, although Denver's fireworks were pretty much just small dots of light from the top of Pikes. Definitely worth doing it at least once.

Very cool, thanks Pat & ChiTransplant. Wondering what’s the average fast hike time on Barr in Winter

Maybe 5-6hrs.
Trail is tracked out to BC.
Beyond camp has seen traffic, but it's lighter. However Adaman hiked it today, so if they were able to stay Barr trail entire way above Aframe, then it's likely in good shape. Very little wind in PP region today on E side, up to 11k

Should I send with trail runners in my pack tonight for the way down? Think it’s legal to drive one beer deep

I hiked it on Xmas over 10 years ago, carrying an overnight pack and probably minimum 30min stop at camp, and was on the summit in ~9 hrs. Going light on packed trail that time could be cut down by several hours.
I'm not going to tell you what footwear to bring. It will be cold. Don't drink anymore beer.

Awesome, much appreciated. Long day at work motivation factor is slim rn
