From Stephanie J 4:30am:
2:15 am Pine Junction to DIA. Through security before 4:15 including dropping car at The Parking Spot.

Icy from Pine Junction to Elk Creek then clears a little by Kings Valley. Slushy and slippery approaching Richmond Hill and lane recognition disappears. It’s very slippery. Snow started tapering off through Aspen Park but heavy fog approaching Windy Point until about Sourdough.

Canyon was above freezing and wet. Decent rain started near Morrison and continued through Wheat Ridge. Roads were dry past 225. Speeds were between 30 and 45 mph until after highway 8 in Morrison.

Good morning, this is like a spring storm but not near the snow predicted. Shelton and 43 are snowpacked, 285 is snowpacked and slushy until the magic park county line then just wet until the top of Richmond Hill then back to slush. 73 is snowpacked and a little slick just take er easy and no dents, have a Fantastic Saturday, oh yea the roundabout in Marshdale is slicker than snot be careful

Nikki K 6:30am
Someone’s off in a ditch right off 73 on one of the side streets near Flying J so take care turning off the main roads. 73 is plowed but slippery/slushy heading from 285 towards 70. 285 was clear but with slushy spots starting so don’t let it fool you into going too fast cause the slick spots sneak up. The bigger snow event is through today to late tonight. Safe travels y’all!

Not this morning but I drove [CR 73] around 8 last night and it was slick but not awful if you take you time and have decent tires and vehicle.

Kassie G 5:30am
Just went conifer to Littleton. 285 is plowed and snowpacked, poor lane recognition.

Karen E 3:30am
2:15am - Pine Junction to Conifer

Roads mostly snow packed, with a nice little layer of ice underneath. It is slick at Kings Valley. I didn't have any issues, but I also left early to allow myself extra time.

Have a great day!

Good morning everyone, well the closer ya get to town the more snow you get. Shelton and 43 are snowpacked with a pretty thin layer of snow and ice. 285 is pretty much wagon tracks to conifer. 73 is snowpacked hard looks like a well groomed ski run with a bit of sand, the only place I slide a bit was by the fire dept in Evergreen. 5 degrees here but it sure is Purdy.

From Jess I. 7:30am
I think Cliff beat the snow this morning, so for anyone wondering…

As of 7ish, 43 is dry until the south end of the valley, roads a bit snow packed once you get closer to 285. 285 is covered with a layer of snow, minimal lane recognition, from Bailey to kings valley or so, mostly just wet from there on out. Slower speeds are appropriate, but no significant icy spots of note. Seems likely the afternoon commute is going to be less than fun.

Sorry I’m not funny like Cliff, but hopefully this is helpful to someone! Happy Friday!

7:00 am Just drove Kings Valley to downtown, 285 to 470 to 6. 285 was mostly clear with good lane recognition and just a few icy spots. 470 and 6 are mostly wet. Scariest things are the people driving 60 / 30. Only took an extra 5 minutes to get downtown.
