    Default Snow Bashing Yankee Hill Sunday 2/9



    Anyone interested in a snow bashing run on Yankee Hill? I've got a couple other people who are interested from other groups. Tentatively planning to meetup at the Conoco in Idaho Springs at 830 and head for the trail-head at 9. Also tentative on snowfall over the next couple days.

    I may be, depending how the snow turns out. I've been crossing my fingers for snow, but it's only been a 3-4 inches at my place so far.

    Make sure you start from Central City side of the trail, not the Alice side. I did Yankee last weekend and it was relatively snow free and we made it easily all the way to the top of the actual Yankee hill. Iím sure this weekend there will be a lot more snow! We got about 6Ē on Tuesday and are expected to get a lot more over the next few days. So it should definitely be snow bashing

    Looks like we'll see some good snow. If Yankee is too deep we can always check out oh my god, barbour forks, etc.

    I'm on 35's, winch, locker, strap, snatch block, and have some knock off maxtrax coming tomorrow. Got one other guy from another group who is most likely in but the more rigs the better.

    I'm all for getting stuck, just don't want to be stuck all day. We'll see how much snow this storm dumps, it already started in Broomfield.

    Absolutely don't mind waiting. We can convoy together, I'm in Broomfield as well. Forecast is only calling for 3-5 inches of snow today at Idaho Springs, hoping we don't get snowed out.

    I'm gonna call this one off. With the I70 closures today and more snow coming Sunday evening I'd hate to get stuck coming down.

    yeah, you might want to call it off. 35s and lockers is not going to get you far...




    that's my driveway from about 4 hours ago. we've gotten more since.




    33's and my v8 are basically zero match for the 22" we've gotten. and Yankee ALWAYS gets more than I do.

    for reference, I live about 8 minutes from Yankee Hill, just to the north East.

    I'm pretty sure you'll be stuck all day.

    Is there a better place to try farther North? Like, Bunce, Sugarloaf, Gordon's Gulch?

    seems like north got less. I know Ned didn't get anywhere near this much. maybe 10-12" up there. so yeah, Bunce might be better. I'm sitting around 26" right now, so I'm assuming Yankee has more than 30" easy.

    I70 was closed all day from Golden to Eisenhower. We could make it up before the snow on Sunday but I don't want to sit all night on I70 trying to get home.

    Hwy 6 was also closed for a good amount of the day for all the crashes. it's a mess up here, haha.

    The avalanche danger is pretty high. I would bet on occasional highway closures today.

    Just a little north, Iím a few miles north of Bunce at 8500 feet elevation and we didnít get close to that much snow. We did get 6-8Ē and itís blowing like crazy today but itís amazing how much more yíall got just 50-60 miles south.

    Heres my morning picture, snowy but nothing like those of you near I70
