Sounds like a good time! I wish I could make it, but I need to use my ski pass to make it worth the money! Let us know how it goes!

China Wall is a lot of fun in the snow. I wish I could go, but work prevents it. Sunday might work. Maybe we'll head up that way and look for your tracks. Don't leave any evidence that you got stuck, or we'll have to tell everybofy...

Chris, any time you want to ride along with me you let me know. Your more than welcome! I've done a lot to the Jeep since we last got to wheel together.

Yes, China Wall is a blast in the snow....does anyone have any idea how much snow is on the trail???

I dont really talk to Adam or Alec much. They havent gotten out much other than Moab from what I know. We have 4 Jeeps and Zuk heading up this time, I'm getting Video and Pics so I'll shoot them your way!

Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets see some pics and a trail report! Turns out I might have gone because the weather said very cold so we didn't ski, however the weather wasn't that bad. I did, however get some work done on my bronco so it wasn't a total loss.

Here are a few pics that were taken on the trip.

Trail was fun as always. There was about 2-3 inches of snow on the trail, traction was suprisingly good. Everyone ran the trail without damaging anything and the weather was perfect.

The new Grand Cherokee performed AWESOME! Even with the shitty goodyear street tires the thing didn't miss a beat. Of course he was by-passing a couple of the obstacles due to clearance issues, but other than that it was supr. sweet! That Hemi sure would look nice in my TJ

What?!?! Someone wheeling the new ZJ? WOW brave soul! I have to look at the pictures now!

Well I'll be...

How far did you go? Did you go down that steep hill with the big rocks at the top?

i've got also go an 03' grand cherokee overland with stock crap tires. it performs great offroad. i'll have to take it there sometime.

J.D., temps. skiing at breakenridge over the weekend were not that chilly, it's the wind that made it cold! they didn't close any lifts, but the wind chill factor kicked in.
