Per Mari on our Facebook page: Driving up 285 now, icy and low visibility. Please drive cautiously and leave extra distance! BTW I'm a passenger so I'm NOT texting and driving!!!

Per eyewitness: Lots of cars blocking the right lane after you pass C470. Cars sliding. It opens up again before Morrison.

An important, thoughtful reminder I received as a message. Posting with permission:
Hello Sharon. I just wanted to pass this along.. in times like this bad weather. People get in a hurry and upset with other drivers. They, we all think someone should be going faster, slower or what ever people complain about.. I have a son. This is his first year driving in the snow with out me.. And I would rather him drive slower and have his and everyone else's life matter. As I was coming home from the store tonight at Richmond hill it was bad.. but as we got down the hill to realize one car was going 5 mph I was like are you kidding me.. And as I said those words.. I then realized that could be some one else child and I relaxed and enjoyed my safe ride home.. Just my words of thouhht . I didn't know if I could just post this. Hope you can pass it along.

Heard on the scanner a bit ago that it is still like a parking lot between C470 and Hwy 8.

From previous eyewitness who's made it further up the road: Richmond Hill/Fire Station is just snow-packed. Does look like the plows got to it awhile ago but starting to build back up again. No traffic back ups.

Edit to add: another comment on our Facebook page:
Just got home in burland. 1.5 hrs from C470.

Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District just tweeted that Hwy 285 is slick in spots so please take it slow and move over for emergency vehicles.

Per MissChris on our Facebook Page: We just came up 285 & a little past windy Point into Conifer there must be 2-3"s of hail on the roads, making them very slick & slushy. There is a 4 car accident northbound lane across from King Soopers. Please drive slow & careful! ~MissChris
