    No, you will be fine. It is basically a paved road but with snow. We will be running M.E.T . I will be meeting co-workers and others at 9 am at the Mcdonalds off hwy 50 and hazel. Will be everything from stockers to a few built rigs.

    I might be in. FYI, we're supposed to get a foot of snow at my house this weekend, so it may be snowing while you're up there.

    Yeah its just a wide un-plowed road, they allow green sticker rigs out there as well.

    There's usually rangers giving tickets to people who venture off the road to restricted areas so stay on the main drag.

    My ideal day is hauling ass down MET all the way to 88 and boarding kirkwood for a half day.

    Yeah. I mentioned that to the others so we all abide by the rules. The seasonal closure is still in effect. Maybe we will see you out there, I will be the only FJC probably.

    cool man, if you see me i'll be in my cherokee. I need to put in some steel spring perches out back as i cracked my aluminum ones, and fix my passenger window that is stuck in the down position.

    I'm going to try my best to make it though as i'm itchen to take advantage of this fresh powder we're finally getting (hopefully) this seems like quite a warm storm.

    Last time i hit up some snow was last season on the con, snow was soo much better last year.

    Of course, this time of year the gate's closed at the other end. But I heard rumors that since Vail purchased Kirkwood, they "might" reconsider plowing MET in the winters again. Good for skiers, bad for traffic on Sly Park Rd and bad for those of us that like to play on MET.

    We were spoiled last year. It is warm but I rather go out and find no snow than sit at home. Hopefully there is some not too far up. I like to get away from the daily grind, just can't seem to find the time anymore.
