Oh, I'd like to know the answer to this also, could definitely use a winter WW run.

I haven't been in there this year so I don't know for sure.

But we had a pretty deep freeze on the western slope from mid-Dec through mid-Jan. There are still ice bridges across the Colorado in town, in places where I've never seen anything close to it.

I'd think WW would be locked up, thus I haven't been in to check.

The good news is it's much warmer this week, with more warmth in the forecast, and the ice along the river in town is fading fast.

I'd put another bet that it is pretty darn locked up right now, much more so than in years past. Even with some nice warm weather, the canyon itself isn't going to be getting too much sun at this time of year.

What a nightmare it would be to make it through Last Chance and have moving water disappear under the ice.

I learned from a couple of sources this week that there's likely still ice.
