I don't know where your region is, but traffic on I70 does not clear after an hour or so. Often times on a Sunday it still sucks at 8 at night. So the 80-90 minute drive can turn into 3 even 5 hours in the worst scenario.
And I did specify Sunday. Not Saturday.
If you want to avoid traffic, you leave early in the AM to go riding and you cut out early on Sunday. For Saturdays, enough people stay in the mountain so that the traffic delay is generally only 15-20 minutes longer worst case scenario.
It's pick your poison with I70 on a winter Sunday afternoon.
