I might be down but currently my canam is the only vehicle I have to wheel, my truck is under the knife and blazer I couls probably throw a motor in and come down. How much area do you have for wheeling down there.

basicly when the snow gets deep here we have 150 miles of road to wheel on then a crap load of trails lots of ditches and cannyons, and im planning a winter run up mt blanca this year wich is quite dangerous , not for weak hearted, lots of drop offs

I may be very interested this winter! Perhaps when I'm down skiing at wolf creek we can swing over for a day or two!

I'm running a yj, v8' 40's and tons.... Good amount of belly clearance which I'd imagine is good in the snow.....

That sounds killer! My friend knows wolf creek pass REALLY well and owns a house in Pagosa Springs.... There is a short skin involved, but you get 3000 vertical feet back to the car shuttle.... I'm definitely looking forward to this winter! Also the 2 guys I typically ski with have all their avy certifications and we have beacons and recovery gear!
