A friend ran Twin Cone yesterday. Reports that it was open all the way to the top.

Yes, it is open and no snow on the way up.

We also did it yesterday, only passed an ATV near the top and a couple of parked rigs lower down. Looked like lots of snow on the Webster side of things. :thumbsup:

Cool - thanks for the update I was going to run this last weekend but wasn't sure if it was open.

Isn't it about time for you to change your Colo 4x4 name to Rubicon Dave? Or Unlimited Dave?

Two of us are heading up there tomorrow. Both of us are new Jeep owners. My friend has only wheeled Johnny Park and the lighter side of Lefthand Canyon. It should be fun, hopefully it won't rain on us.

Steve,
I tried to change it but the system wouldn't let me becasue it recognized my computer as XJ Dave. I'll have to delete myself and re-apply if I want to change I guess.

BTW- A few of us are running Twin Cone on Sunday. Meeting at the Loaf N Jug at Hwy 285 and Park County 43A at 9:15 am. This is the Conoco Gas station about 1/2 mile north of the top of Crow Hill.

Fantastic day. The two of us made it to the top. What spectacular views. The trail wasn't that bad, but the reports I have read don't do the steepness of those hills justice. We also managed to miss every storm on the way back to Boulder. Simply beautiful.

Dave -

Thanks for the invitation. Kids soccer tournament and chores have me confined to a 20 mile radius this weekend.

We are heading for Chinamen's near Buena Vista next weekend if you are interested. Camp Saturday night, run the trail Sun.
