Winter driving conditions in the mountains can change very quickly. Although I-70 between Denver and the mountains is extremely well maintained and plowed, during and after recent snows, snowpacked roads and some icy spots are frequently encountered. Additionally, traffic on I-70 into and out of the mountains can be heavy over certain weekends. During these times, westbound traffic up from the Front Range into the mountains can be heavy on Friday evenings. And eastbound I-70 traffic down from the mountains towards Denver can back up on Saturday & Sunday afternoons. Check out the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) map of current speeds to see if traffic can be expected.
