We’re happy to be getting some snow, but the timing is the worst for those travelling to the mountains Friday evening. Blizzard conditions expected from about 3 PM – 9 PM, with heavy snow, wind, poor visibility, and likely road closures. This will be a fast-moving storm, so if you can, adjust your travel time to earlier Friday, or wait until Saturday morning, to miss the worst driving conditions. CDOT will likely implement the Passenger Traction Law, so please make sure your vehicle is prepared with snow tires, AWD/4WD, and/or chains.
For Silverthorne, we’re expecting between 3″ and 6″ of snow by Saturday morning, and we anticipate that this will trigger our snow plowing crew to be out on Saturday. Please move your cars to allow for plowing. The ski slopes are forecasted to get up to a foot of fresh snow by Saturday morning – yay!
