Anyone been up the road from Georgetown in the past few days? Thinking about stomping around towards Evans on Saturday and checking out snow conditions.
Did you ever make it up there?? We were thinking about trying Evans through this side via spaulding on Friday 3-8-13
We are stardust
I was up there today. The sign at the bottom says the winter closure is 8.2 miles from the bottom, but that seems a bit off. Anecdotally speaking, I skinned up from the closure to the pass in probably an hour and a half, and I'm not fast. I'm not really familiar with the route up Evans, but the west side of Bierstadt was really bare; there were definitely no ski lines, so I doubt you would need an axe/crampons. The wind was brutal today, and it has just been ripping away any snow in that area (the road was totally bare at the top, but that may be normal). Things could change if there is a lot of new snow this week.
