Driving between Denver International Airport and your favorite epic Rocky Mountain ski resort can present challenges during winter months. The Colorado Department of Transportation, known as CDOT, does a great job maintaining our roadways. With preparation and knowledge, you can navigate your way along I-70 safely in Colorado’s ever-changing weather. Or, leave the driving in the hands of Epic Mountain Express.
Take it from the locals who get to experience Colorado year-round, here is what we love about this time of year in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains…The weather and longer days, sunshine, the mountains, al fresco meals and cocktails, the charming resort towns, the fun and costumes, the ease of getting around, and relief that the coldest days are left behind. These all combine to make an unforgettable spring vacation.
Are you ready for Colorado’s new tire traction law on Interstate 70, the main highway between Denver Airport and Colorado’s ski resorts, including Vail, Aspen Keystone, Beaver Creek, and Breckenridge? See what is required to drive on Colorado’s roads.
A revised traction law went into effect for the I-70 corridor in Colorado on September 1, which will hopefully affect the drive to your mountain ski vacation for the better.
