Traffic Tomorrow

If you've been watching OpenSnow or any of the news channels, Summit and Eagle counties are about to get some of the highest single day snow totals we've had all year. On top of that, breck just opened upper terrain including their 6 chair. I'm expecting some absolutely horrendous traffic for tomorrow morning and evening but how bad do you think it will be?

Probably really bad. Cdot tweeted that there was heavy traffic last night around 8 pm at the tunnel. Everyone on the front range trying to drive up plus snowpacked roads = disaster. I'm going to try to drive up later tonight. Heading to Winter Park so hopefully they keep bertoud open.

It's windy down here in Aurora so I bet it's really bad up there...

If you're passing the Morrison exit by 6:30am, it'll be fine.

Planning on hitting Berthoud Pass on Sunday. Hopefully it's not closed as I probably won't have time to wait for it to open. We'll see.

Does anyone on this board ever rideshare together up to the mountain? Other than those who obviously knew each other before joining the board.

I'm going to try to avoid that traffic like the plague and head up tonight. I found a killer deal for a room 7 miles from Vail. See you on the first chair. lol

I wish.... It will be a couple months before I catch another chair.... I'll probably ride the gondola once or twice just to feel kinda normal......

Looking at radar, this storm should be here in an hour, maybe 2... Looks like a big storm.
