2013-03-18 From the Fairplay side I drove past the Rich Creek TH in 2-wheel drive. There were other cars that had been there a few days previous. To park in the parking area I had to use 4x4 to get back out. Just past Rich Creek I had to go to 4x4 to get through some drifts, Weston Pass campground and TH is totally snowed in as it is on the southern side of the valley. I continued past the campground a couple miles before I got to a drift I couldn‘t make it through. That was just about 3.5 miles from the top of Weston Pass. gbutler1492

About 2 miles west of the pass, there is a bit of an ice flow (see picture) that looks much like the one on the Princeton Road - probably 100 feet long. With chains or studded snow tires, it should be doable but as I had neither, I opted to park and hike Finnback Knob from there. Didn‘t go down the west side of the pass beyond FS150 so no idea what the conditions there are. Jay521  1
