I remember being in mandatory chainups in our cars in CA as a kid, but I've never seen it here in CO. I wonder if the maritime nature of west coast snow has any bearing or what, I know Snowolf has driven in shit weather everywhere, maybe he knows why.

Generally there are no chain laws here for normal civilian vehicles. It is not totally true, but most people have snowtires, 4x4 or both. All (i have heard of a couple small town/passes exceptions) of the mandatory chain ups are for big rigs.

I-70 is plowed pretty well. The new Cdot app is pretty sick for i70 denver-vail.
