Welcome to Euclid Hall Bar and Kitchen!
I've been meaning to get to Euclid. I was very underwhelmed by Rioja.

Thanks for the info!
Good news with the frozen lake n wind! We may fit in a day snowkiting - if there's no dump to ride, of course

Swapped the arrival day to Thursday instead of Friday. Not eager to spend my holiday in traffic jams if it can be avoided getting there a day earlier.

As prices of flights n rental cars have already increased since I last checked, I gonna pull the trigger now

Any hints on dos n don'ts in CO are appreciated!

KansasNoob Yeah they are pretty well siped. Those were the stock Continentals and I would trust the car on them. I doubt it can push snow like a pickup with them but I wouldn't be scared to drive it in a foot. I don't know if Sub's are a big thing in Europe but there is a reason people love em here.

linvillegorge Yep, you're gonna get the cheapest, longest lasting, hard as a rock tires on the planet on a rental car. The tires pictured are actually pretty decent for a rental, at least they have a decent amount of siping. Hence the need for 4x4 or AWD in a rental. People out here who frequently travel to the mountains who don't have 4x4 or AWD almost always have snow tires and often carry chains as well. That makes a HUGE difference. You're not gonna have those luxuries in a rental. It may not snow while you're here and the 4x4/AWD not needed, but no way of knowing that. Better to hedge toward being prepared for the worst.

KansasNoob This is what you can expect for tires on an AWD rental. 2014 Outback.

I think it's awesome you're coming to ride. If you were going to be there earlier in the month, I would definitely catch a few laps with y'all.

Most tourist skiers/rider's don't start until 10/1030 and stop for lunch, then go from 1230 to 1430. In March the lifts are open 830 to 1600. Keystone has night riding until 2000.
LOL, what a good short descripion. And IIRC, you haven't had a day with fresh here, when the mad mob gets really pushy

we've about the same schedule.

f00bar I so envy your travels! It's kinda funny, around here we always talk about wanting to head to your neck of the woods, and here you are coming over here. Of course the sad part is you've gone to better places here than I have.
