Hey y'all, just a quick question: What's your thoughts on the updated elevations of Colorado's fourteeners? Start referring to the peaks with their updated elevations or keep using the "classic" elevations? (as in, Pikes Peak, is it 14,110' or 14,115'? Elbert - 14,433' or 14,440'?, etc.) Trying to decide whether or not to make the update for our 2017 Colorado Fourteeners calendar.
I'm trying to get a sense for how close to a few trailheads I could get early next week in an ordinary medium-clearance 4WD. Specifically, does anyone here know the plowing situation getting to Willow Creek (San Luis and friends), Sherman (Half Peak), or the road in to Rio Grande Reservoir (RGP)? This early spring is making me itch to get out into the hills.
I will be going to the Desolation Wilderness this weekend for some solo winter backpacking. Does anyone have any route or campsite recommendations, along with areas to avoid in terms of avalanche/tree well safety? I have an idea for my route, but I'm still taking suggestions.
My reason for registering is to confirm my recollection of a trip to Mount Washington in 1975.

I'm looking to attempt Browns Peak last week of February, I will have 4x4 with modest ground clearance, smaller SUV. Which route do I stand the best chance of making it to the trailhead for Browns Peak Tr 133, Over four peaks to lone pigeon or across EL Oso? I will be coming from Apache Junction?
A bunch of buddies and myself are thinking of trying Shasta via Green Butte. Since we are not the most prepared group around I'd like to have some added security in the form of GPS track. Anybody has a gpx file you can share? Thanks in advance.
Cori (half lab, half german shepherd) bagged 14 peaks last summer/fall starting soon after she turned 1 on Dr.s orders (both mine and hers). I have never done a hike in the winter. I did look through some trip reports, and had an idea where to start (Waumbek), but wanted some advice, since I definitely need to be making some purchases.
I do have: snow boots new warm mittens snow pants a crappy winter hat ...
