Thanks for the response, The route through Durango is what I was curious about. I have only been to silverton in Summer via train..... Have not been on the roads. Glad to hear it is maintained coming from the north, that was my main concern.
Hope we get through before the roads close.... I have driven wolf creek pass and it takes an avy or some serious dampage to close that pass.... They do have guardrails though.... The never close the pass between mint urn and Leadville and I have driven that a lot also in some bad weather. It also has guardrails in most curvy places.
We got a house vrbo fashion.... We use vrbo when we travel all the time. This time it was arranged through the team admin but they use it too..... Great site for finding places wherever you go.
