    No place to find the information? Or none of the National Forests thru which the CT crosses ever have restrictions on alcohol stoves?

    When I was there a few weeks ago, they had signs listing the “burn ban” or “fire danger”. In Summit County, it was a level 2 fire ban which would prohibit any fire other than that from a stove with an “off” valve. So.....canister stoves were the only fires allowed.

    Check the difference between county bans and NF bans. We often have county-wide bans in Wyoming, but those bans don't apply to NF areas as those are federally managed and mandated. Just double check...each state is different

    Fire restrictions are enacted by county. You need to go to each individual county.

    So long as you clear the area around your stove of combustibles (which you should do regardless of the type of stove you use), I don't see the problem with alcohol stoves. Unfortunately, there are careless people out there and accidents happen even if careful. The whole west is a tinder box which doesn't take much to set it ablaze and once started, difficult to stop. Please refrain from making a campfire too.

    From a practical standpoint, it takes longer and requires more heat to boil water and cook at high elevation, which makes a propane stove a better choice then an alcohol anyway.

    Be safe. Be responsible. Do the right thing. Use a gas canister stove.
    So far, Colorado and New Mexico don’t look like California. Please keep it that way.

    There is smoke everywhere within at least a couple hundred miles of my home. Please be exceptionally careful whatever the regs are at any time. I expect people in Colorado like to breath.

    Just returned from 5 days along the CT, the collegiate west and one section of the east, pretty darn dry out there, I do see county fire ban signs all over the place, I should know for sure about any Alchy stove bans, but I just don't, sorry, because I use a canister stove. It's still a bit smoky in the collegiate peaks area, not too bad, can't smell it at least, I think it's mostly smoke from CA and neighboring states.

    I camped with maybe a dozen folks total, no one had an alcohol stove, for what that's worth. AND, it did rain pretty hard on me for the last few days, so it is at least starting to get less dry.

    Use a no-spill alcohol stove such as the Starlyte as seen here in the DIY forums

    Just do the right thing folks.
    Drink the alcohol.
    Burn the compressed gas in a canister.
    Fire notices in Colorado this year have omitted liguid fuel white gas stoves. This is new in the past year or two.
    Err on the side of caution. An extra ounce or 3 won’t kill you.

    OR, just go stoveless in extra high fire danger times and places and thus eliminate the danger all together.

    We all make sacrifices to the places and times we backpack through. Sometimes we carry extra water or extra warm cloths. It seems to me that eating food that doesn't use a stove can be another practice, at times, like not trenching around our tents, that can be managed and keep our treasured wild areas safer.
    I'm not lost. I'm exploring.

    Well said and very true. Stoveless is always an option.
    However, this discussion was about the use of alcohol stoves in the midsts of an ever changing fire hazard area.

    On second thought...
    “Be safe. Do the right thing.” would also imply going stoveless. And campfire free.
    Whatever works for y’all!
