Heads up if your heading out. MAJOR ICE SPOT in left and right lane NB just before Twin Forks exit. Be aware, and go slow. Safe travels.

Good Morning 285 travelers, As always Shelton is unplowed and well burnished on the S curve before 43 so careful there, 43 unplowed and no lane recognition it's a little windy so blowing snow adds to the fun, 285 has not been plowed however there's only about 1/2 inch of snow so just enough to cover the road and keep you on your toes, 73 is unplowed and a bit slick this morning, it's snowing pretty hard in Evergreen at the moment but only about an inch on the ground.

Left Pine Junction at 3:45. Lightly snowing, roads snowpacked with no lane recognition, but not slippery underneath. Got to 470 at 4:10 and Swedish Medical (Englewood, Broadway and 285/Hampden) at 4:30. Saw plows out (Southbound) at Windy Point and (Northbound) at Kipling.

Just drove from Morrison to Como. Roads were wet until just past Platte Canyon HS where snow was coming down & there was a light dusting of snow on the roads until the top of Kenosha. Once I came down Kenosha the snow stopped and roads were just wet again.

Conditions are getting bad around windy point. I’m in a 4 runner with good tires but didn’t have it in 4wd and fishtailed right at windy point.

3:50 left Pine Junction: snowing hard ("sand" consistency). No Lane recognition. Definitely icy in spots like King's Valley and Windy Point. Able to travel around 45 miles an hour. Snow choppy like a south-facing, sun affected ski slope, but just wet when you get to 470. Took about 35 minutes (versus 20-25 minutes normally).

Good morning, As of 4am ( l want my hour back) the roads are pretty slick Shelton is snowpacked and the S curve before 43 is pretty snotty, 43 is of coarse unplowed and its snowing hard (hyperspace) which adds to the excitement, 285 is snowpacked and slushy 73 is in pretty good shape sanded anyway. Plows are out watch for splashback Happy Thursday

Going down:

Slushy, snow packed, little icy, all of it. Worst is Indian hills. Make sure you have plenty of wiper fluid

Left Pine at 6am and moseyed to Kipling on 285SB. Lane recognition hit and miss - choppy, hard packed snow with some icy delight underneath. Normal slippy-whippy culprits at Windy Point and the canyon. Snow seems to have stopped. Avg speed was 40-45mph...right around 470/70 exchange roads turned to just wet.

Travelers report very slick conditions and multiple semis stuck on Hwy 285 SB at Windy Point. Please be careful heading out this morning. Passenger traction law is in effect from Pine Junction to C-470.
