Drive from Pine Junction to DIA just now was decent. Just under 2 hours.
Roads were snowy and icy up the hill then got more and more clear until it was just wet near the airport.

5:45 a.m. 285 NB from Twin Forks to town is snow packed/covered, but didn't seem to slick so if you have good tires you should be fine. I went 30-35 mph through the canyon without any troubles. Will get slower as more people get on the road.

Shadow Mtn to Golden
Shadow Mtn and mist of Aspen Park not plowed. Grader was chaining up by JJ Madwells. 285 snow packed with only right lane down to hard pack. 4 CDOT plows getting on NB 285 from HWY 8 when I went by. SB before Parmalle semi with Trooper stuck right lane. 470 show packed to hard pack.
Remember with the return Tabor not passing last November ever County section got their budget severely cut. For Road and Bridge, less OT for night and weekend plowing and less product on the road.

Just drove from downtown Denver to bailey. 285 snow packed and some icy parts went about 40-45 mph a few cars passed me. Be careful because it looks like 285 is only plowed by one lane. If you live off 43 it’s literally just piled with snowed and icy. If your going into Denver c470 and 6th were terrible. Icy and snow packed.

Snowpacked and some icy spots on 285, 30mph on curves, of course some ppl trying to do normal speeds.. right lane had better lane recognition. Ice and snowpack by c470
I did the speed limit mostly on NTC just slow on curves definitely

As of last night there were dropping lots of gravel on N. Turkey and it was in decent shape! The highway is typical this morning. Take your time and you will be fine as it is a bit slick.

Just drove from Denver to Roland Dr. Morrison to Windy Point is clear, it looks wet but there is very little to no splash back which means it’s probably icing up, be careful. Snow pack increases past Conifer and the curves between Kum & Go and Shaffers Crossing are very slick, you do not want to hit them at the speed limit. Take it slow and the road is passable without too much trouble.

Roads are expected, icy and snow packed. Cars and some semi’s are on the shoulders. Watch those blind corners heading to the canyon.

Super Sketchy all the way from 470 to Conifer.
I saw a CDL Safety School Semi in the median, a small car slid as it was trying to exit and turned on it's side, two vehicle fender bender, stopped to help but one of the vehicles front end was smashed into the tire and inoperable, several other vehicles on the side with hazzards on.
I hydroplaned several times near the bottom of the hill before I figured out to drive on the right or left of the wear ruts, which are like two parallel little rivers.
Gets SUPER ICY near the top.
Get home to your loved ones safely folks!

11:45am...heavy snow on Conifer Mt. Getting about 1.5 - 2 inches per hour right now near top of Kennedy Gulch. Plows are very active, though. Road looks pretty good up here. (9000')

Hubby just drove his pickup with really good tires from Chatfield to King’s Valley and said 285 is HORRIBLE and one of the worst conditions he’s seen (lived up here since 2013)
Saw a plow....but it’s snowing/windy HARD - probably 11 inches in KV right now.

1115am: 285 from pleasant park to 470. Roads and visibility are garbage. Highway is super slick and slow going. Lots of vehicles having issues on southbound side going through Windy Point. Northbound is free of vehicle issues but everyone is thankfully going super slow and careful. Plows are out but they are barely keeping up. Stay home if you can.

Bailey loafn jug to c470
Good morning y'all, the roads are wet until north of foxton road then a light dustin until you come out of the canyon then the snow is a little heavier on the road. The snow is light to moderate as the bands are moving thru the areas. Might want to tap those brakes on the north side of windy point, it getting frosty on that side, also ad you go thru the canyon. Spotted a southbound plow at grant automotive. Visibility is clear all
the way down. No slide offs, rollovers, or accidents at this time. Y'all have a great day!
Mari W 7:02am
Barkley road has a couple of cars already stuck that cannot make it up the hill and are sliding backwards
Andi R 6:46am
Vehicles facing wrong way on NB 285.. first one in curves mile before HWY 8 exit in right lane...2nd one before 470 lost his bumper in left lane and they spun to shoulder on right side.. we were following 2 plows but it didn’t feel like it
Matthew L 8:27am
Conditions are getting worse. From Bailey to Denver Snowing. Hard pack frozen slush under hard pack snow. Plows are out but the gray merkey (sp) frozen slush under the snow is not going anywhere with the plows. That is Ice my fellow drivers. So keep it safe. Turkey Creek was getting bad as I went through 40 min ago. Bus and a few cars south bound spun out and stuck. Once you get to about Kipling and I70 roads improve to slushy mush. Same as you get past C470 on 285
Jessica C 8:19am
North Turkey Creek alternates from slushy to snowpacked. It definitely could use a plow. There are a lot of slick spots. Be safe and stay healthy
