Snow Run 12/18/04

Bring it stock or not.
Lets do an unoffical snow run on Saturday Dec 18th upto Jacks Pass.
Not sure on meeting place or time yet.

Mandatory equipment:
Recovery points
Extra Cloths and food
Recovery strap
Fire extinguisher
First aid kit
Good additude

Suggested equipment:
Shovel
CB
Spare parts
Tire chains
Hi lift jack
Warm cloths

I figure we will go as far as we can have Lunch and play around then head back down. So dress warm maybe even bring a sled or two. It will be a family friendly event.

So who all is coming?
I am for one

Re: Snow Run 12/18/04

Would someone enlighten me as to where jacks pass is? It may be too far of a drive for my jeep since I am planning on lockers then and I'm not sure how well they will agree with the snow on the roads.

Re: Snow Run 12/18/04

It is on US-2 By Stevens pass in WA. Correct??

Dennys would be fine with me.
I am going to need some directions.

Go with a leave time of 9:00 am
And an arrive time of 8:00 am for those who want breakfast.
Or something like that.

If work will let me out, I will be there. Now I just have to figure out where US-2 is.

Re: Snow Run 12/18/04

Sorry to hear that but I defininty understand the long drive thing.

I don't actually know the Jacks Pass area, I heard that it is a great snow run. So we are looking for someone who knows the pass and would possibly like to lead.

Re: Snow Run 12/18/04

I have been up to Jacks Pass a couple of times years ago now and I can get us to the main entrance (Spider web of trails) And I have been down a few of them some distance before getting stuck with tons of vehicles in front of us. The best directions I can provide are this:

US HWY 2 is the Stevens Pass Hwy it goes from Everett WA on the West side to Wenatchee on the East side.

The town of Index is on your way up the West side of stevens pass and the entrace to Jacks Pass is just outside of Index. If you turn North at Index and follow that road all the way up to the end of the road that is it.

I will try to get some maps that we can use for more info.

Michael

Re: Snow Run 12/18/04

I just looked at a couple of general maps that I have and could not find Jacks Pass on any of them so all of the info below is based on my memory and belief that I was at or near Jacks Pass until someone can prove me wrong or right.

I will probably be able to come and will be bringing my wife and 3 kids.

Yeah, I took a bad line on an off-camber trail (the one in my avitar). My buddy riding with me was a little freaked out when I had to climb out my window. I havn't seen any of the pics yet. Someone want to scan them? I just need to bother Clay I think.
