Montana's regulations concerning motor vehicles are far too sensible. You need to send a representative to Colorado to show you how to muck things up.

Thanks, that's great information. Am I right in thinking that anything over 13V is going to give at least a small charge to the battery?

I heard 6 inches on Paradise Divide, much lower than Pearl. People are XC skiing on Kebler. Probably not advisable to try Pearl, but I think that's true 365 days a year so take it for what it's worth.
