Schofield Pass, Colorado – Snow Obstacle Still There

Schofield Pass snow

Sorry about the lack of scale in this photo of the Schofield Pass snow block from yesterday (Saturday Sept 3). Rock pile ramp at lower left edge is about half the length of a Jeep. People are driving up and down with quads, and down in regular 4x4s. It’s tough and possibly dangerous to get up at this point (we failed this time), as the start is undercut and side-hilled enough to make a roll possible. The snow section is now only a few hundred feet long, but actually tougher to drive than it was a month ago.

After playing around trying to get Rumble Bee up on the snow, we quit while we were ahead and went fishing. Brought the brookies home and had a NICE trout dinner.
