Default snowstorm in colorado!

damn! wish I was there. actually seriously thinking about booking a last minute trip for saturday morning, but looking at all the travel warnings for flights and roads and such, is that a bad idea? looking at flying into denver and checking out loveland and a-basin. never been. anybody local have any thoughts - how quick do you guys clear roads and such? thanks!

If my parking lot is any indication of the roads it's going to be a slaughterfest tomorrow on I 70. But on a plus side I'll be getting freshies! A basin anyone?

I think 1/2 the state of Colorado's going to be at Abasin tomorrow. Going to Vail...If Vail pass is closed, will hit Breck instead.
