Yeah, but I like snow. Snow is the new mud.

Boreal and I ran in with snow packed down on the trail in areas. bad idea. you slide down obstacles then hit the dry sandstone... with snow falling is one thing, when there is snow on the trail, that can get scary really fast. I might be wrong, but isn't that what happened to that couple near sandy or draper died last year? jeep slid off the trial, rolling to their death.

I'm glad my first "break" in Moab was a latch mechanism, haha.

That was a fun trip. IIRC, that was the most challenging Fins n' Things ever has been, haha... Couldn't even make it in because of the snow/ice!

That was way sketchy. If you got sideways at all on the ice and then hit the rock, easy floppage.

yup

it was up in corner canyon on christmas eve or something; they had just gotten engaged i think, and went for a drive. slid off the road and rolled multiple times. when dry, the road is probably passable by any car if you pick the right lines, but there arent any barriers to protect you from the edge if you start sliding on snow.

ok so the weather report is looking like sun sun bloody sun in the future. So that means we are for sure going to skyline drive. Travis checked out the parking lot today on his way to moab and said it was dry dirt with snow on the sides of the trail. So there may or may not be snow up higher. Could end up being us exploring the trail. Ive included directions below to the gandolfos/chevron gas station off the freeway. we will meet there at 9 and leave shortly after.

Any questions, comments, concerns from anyone but Matt(801dubjay) are welcome.

Thanks!

Orem, UT
1.Head north on N State St toward E Center St
2.Take the 1st left onto W Center St About 6 mins
3.Turn left to merge onto I-15 S toward Las Vegas About 14 mins
4.Take the exit toward US-6 E
5.Keep left at the fork and merge onto US-6 E About 47 secs
6.Turn left at E 1000 N About 59 secs Gandolfo's 1058 Chappel Drive, Spanish Fork, UT 84660

I would imagine we will be done around 12 but it just depends on what people want to do. Honestly the trail is easy enough you could leave anytime
