    We're already at four closures on 70 since the precipitation started.

    Things are going pretty much as expected. Glad I bailed on Denver.

    Need to add a "safety closure" vs accident closure count.

    Basically, safe bet to say "safety closure" just about every time there is going to be a Winter Storm Warning this year.

    Prediction:

    X = # of times I-70 Vail Pass has a Winter Storm Warning this winter
    Y = # of times there will be a safety closure this winter

    3(X) = Y

    How about this.... just with CURRENT closures on I-70, the over/under was defeated. Right now there are four or five "safety closures" between Dotsero and Georgetown. Holy Christ.

    Cdot is defending their decision for safety closures on twitter. Either way it's snowing and 70 is fucked. Wish they'd keep it closed until about noon tomorrow. You know for safety...

    OFFICIAL I70 BITCH THREAD....

    We took 285. Took a little over 3 hours. Was super gnarly around Conifer. Puking hard enough I had to come to a full stop twice. Easy going from Grant to Kenosha. Kenosha through Park was kinda gnarly, not snowing that hard but the typical windblown hiding the car in front of you bullshit.

    I passed 8 trucks and 4 large busses ALL with no chains. All spinning wheels or jackknifed. Only 1 truck going the other had chains. Chain law. 4 bald tire cars. WTF. 2 CSP were out there. Only saw them flashing lights at two of those vehicles. Hope they got fined hard. Our enforcement must be a total joke. Like speed limits.

    Don't worry, I think we have a solution to the I-70 issue.

    It would be nice if they could post those updates on their actual website... it's impossible to find anything on CoTrip.

    It was back open 20 minutes later. Best just to use gmaps for your traffic info, CDOT's gotten better at updating conditions but is still too unreliable to count on.

    Cautious: I'd be wary about taking tech advice from me.

    It seems like CDOTs twitter account is the most up to date for official updated. You don't have to sign up for twitter. Just view it as a web page. google: "twitter @ColoradoDOT"

    Came over LL Pass this morning and saw a semi stuck in a drift off the road, into the mountainside, just northeast of the top (was going EB). Then more unprepared cars stuck trying to go up the west side before the Basin and the top (chain law was in effect).

    What's the current ski traffic situation? Is it the usual get past 470 by 6am (or whenever) program this early in the season? I'm heading back up from Denver tomorrow and trying to figure out when to leave.

    Judging by the complete lack of traffic this morning, my guess is that no one in Denver really cares to ski right now with the beautiful weather here in town. That said, the mountains are supposed to get an inch or two tonight, so it should be snowmagaeddon tomorrow morning.

    In other words, who knows.

    Weekend ski traffic doesn't get bad -- outside of a random pow day or bad weather -- until January, IME. Especially when there isn't much terrain open.
