    I too only dive wet at this time. I have a 7 mm semi-dry (better labeled as a semi-wet) and am comfortable down to 50 F, but found 45F to be quite cold. 2005 diving resolution is to have the drysuit. I'll wait for the ice to clear. I'm not that excited to drag my belly in the mud!

    Odyssey has rentals Mobbys and USIA for $65 a day, $95 for thurs. thru sun.
    by the way I just received my new USIA Aqua Pro yesterday. These suits are nice!
    We need to set a date for Aurora. I think the turn out will be good, diving or not. (I'm diving)

    Congrats on the new suit!

    I'm pretty sure Underwater Phantaseas South also rents dry suits.

    I too got my new suit last night.

    That means I have a apare suit that I need to get rid of.

    It's a Bare XCD2-Tech Dry (2mm crushed neoprene) Size Medium/Large/Short w/ sz 9 boots.
    Here is the link to the suit's page at Bare. http://www.bare-wetsuits.com/bareshop/diveproduct.asp?dept_id=21010&pf_id=61416.

    I have about 20 dives on it since I got it new. It has Halcyon pockets and a P valve. Anyone interested, let me know. I'll probably stick it on ebay in a week. I would like to get $600. out of it. PM me if you want to look at it. I live in Westminster and work in Denver next to D.U. on Evans Ave.

    Really good information. I did not see anything on when the lake is open to diving. Do you know?

    I was out at Aurora res yesterday. Still a bit of ice, but they opened it for boats on the 15th. The ice is just a light icing in the shady spots.

    No water temp was listed. I'm guessing it's still in the 40's, but there wasn't a ranger to ask.

    Thanks. It is good to see we have an active Colorado forum. I did my OW in November and I am excited about doing some diving closer then Blue Hole or Crater. Later I may get more picky about seeing things but for now I just like being in the water.

    Speaking of a scuba-party at Aurora, how warm does the water need to be before people are willing to get wet? Are we shooting for 50F? 55F?

    Coldest I've been in is 62F (Blue Hole)... I'm not sure how low I'm willing to go, but peer pressure has made me do dummer things.
