    Saw a similar incident recently. When can we enact street justice on the roads? Not enough cops in this state and the road ragers know it.

    me and the mrs are there for two weeks in feb. been told by heaps of people that the buses are good and you won't need a car. however I'm the type of person that is there well before first lifts and leaves early.

    no probs driving on snow.
    How valuable is your time? Buses are NOT fast, but save car rentals, gas, and parking.. look at the time tables and plan your route. There is even an app with live bus location (so you know if they are behind).

    The only time I ride those buses is when my car is in the shop... or one in a while to Breck because Breck winter parking is a shitshow of shuttles, pay parking, and gondolas.

    Best use of the bus is from Frisco to Copper.

The road was snowpacked and slippery. Thought he was going to slam head first into an EB vehicle and subsequently take a ride off the edge. Amazing how stupid people are.
    On that note: When you see cars around you slowing down and pulling to the shoulder, before flying past them, put your phone down, look in your mirror, and if you see red and blue lights (emergency vehicle) pull over and let it pass! Then, allow those people who were paying attention to get back into the driving lane. Thanks and have a nice day!

    OFFICIAL I70 BITCH THREAD....

    Sunday I 70 was such a clusterfuck by early afternoon that everyone rerouted to Loveland pass, resulting in a stream going 5-10mph over the pass.

    Only time that I’ve seen it in the pass where there were too many cars for hitchhiking because they were going too slow to be worth it.

    I just stayed until after dark when the delay minimized but there were still thousands of us on 70

    Must have been people taking the 4 hour Vail to Denver trips.

    I feel like if there were more turn arounds on I70 it would solve a ton of these problems. I've been stopped for 2 hrs on Vail pass right next to an emergency turn around with a cop blocking it. Why don't they ever just give people the option to turn around and go back to a town until the road reopens? Instead, folks sit trapped, without bathrooms, possibly running out of gas, and then no heat, in the middle of a snow storm. Seems like a recipe for disaster. I know they do it sometimes, but not as often as you would think.

    I vote for food trucks and shitters at the snowplow turnaround between Silverthorne and the tunnel.

    Not gonna lie...1.5 hours Silverthorne to Denver at 2pm on a Sunday after a week of big storms was pretty impressive (and welcome)

    Saw two guys in the median (were heading eastbound) 1/2mi past the Silverthorne onramp gutting a large elk this evening. Tasty roadkill for dinner.

    What time would y’all recommend getting to Loveland pass this Saturday morning to avoid bad traffic? Staying with a friend in Ft Collins and coming up Saturday.

    Conventional wisdom is that you need to be in Golden/I-70 by 6:30 at latest. But those are mid season rules, may not be so bad right now.
