Reports from travelers this morning:
Martin A 6am
Conifer to 470. 550-605 (ish)

Average speed 40-55

Roads are still decently warm creating some slush and icy spots. No lane recognition.

2 plows headed southbound by fire station homestead area.

Rtd bus in rt lane in Canyon south bound by big dirt pile/turn off

Cdot has 2 pick up trucks running up and down looking for accidents and stuck vehicles etc

Zachary A 5:35sm
Drove from pleasant park to golden starting at 430. Everything is snow packed and it looks like the plows haven’t been out since last night. Nothing was very slick for me but I was definitely driving at a reduced speed. One semi in the canyon appeared to be stopped south bound and all the cars off the road were from last night. So take it easy give yourself extra time and it will be ok.

Travis L 5:15am
The canyon was very slick ice and slushy. I never lied and I got a loose a couple of times going 35m

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

It was a nice few days of no snow for my commute, but back to March in Colorado.

Roads are icy. Not as bad as I expected, but they are icy so drive accordingly! It was lightly snowing the whole way.

PJ to the Kum & Go good lane recognition. The hill just past Shaffer's Crossing is slick and there is a semi going NB that can't make it up the hill in the right lane.

After the Kum & Go to Conifer there isn't much lane recognition, but it's not horrible either.

Off ramps have snow in front of them and the turns are slick.

I didn't have any issues, but I did take my time as driving in this stuff is not my favorite thing to do.

Have a good day & drive safe!

Just drove bailey to Denver. 285 snow packed, shaffers crossing is icy so take it slow! Windy point and the canyon are the same. Canyon is more slushy then snowpacked but don't let it fool you! Rtd bus seems to be stuck on other side going up the canyon. Drive safe everyone!

Per 285 Travelers:
Anita L 6:27am
285 is a disaster. 3 inches of snow (snow/ice/slush) Pine Junction on. No plows have been out. Stay home if you can!

Travis M 6:03am
Do not travel 285 between trout creek and Kenosha. Entirely unplowed. Talked to a CDOT worker and two plows are off the road. I only saw ine plow out.

Good morning folks, Happy moms day to you moms. Shelton and 43 are sloppier than a soup sandwich this morning ( lots of analogies of sloppy this one is rated G) lots of slush. 285 is slushy till about Pine junction then just wet. As of 5am it's raining in Evergreen. Have a fantastic Sunday.

285 in bailey is a mess past deer creek towards conifer. Already saw one spin out and tbone.

Our 4wd car couldn't stay in the lines. The slush sucks your tires in, combine that with traction control and it's really hard to control your car.

Debbie C 8:45am
43 is a mess, deep snow . Cars turning around crossing deer creek going up hill.

Karen E 8:25am
8:00 Pine Junction to Conifer

Side roads are awful. It's not slick, just that deep slush that sucks you into the direction you don't want to go.

There are plows out on 285, but depending on where you are there are patches of deep yuck.

Richmond Hill to Foxton is really slushy and nasty.

If I didn't have to go to work I would not be out. Be safe. Have a nice day!

Pammie D 8am
Windy point to c470 just wet. Conifer aspen park snow packed slush and very icy. Be careful

840am -938am. Will o wisp to Denver West exit 264. The worst part of the drive was from will o wisp to Pine Junction to be honest. Once into Jeffco the roads were more clear and a little slushy. It all converted to rain at Safeway in conifer and it was heavier rain which decreased on the drive down the mountain.Roads were just wet from conifer to denver where it is lighter rain as I write this at my destinstion. Driving a Volvo AWD wagon.

Trip from Bailey to Conifer and back. They’re cleaning up the arrow sign in the left lane of southbound near the Foxton exit. The plows are out but there is standing water in places to be aware of. Definitely better on the way back. That is until you cross over into Park County. There’s slush from turn outs across the road and single lanes where there’s usually two and still a ton of slush.

Caitlin C 10:40am
There’s a truck facing the wrong way on the southbound side across from O Malleys or whatever it’s called now (CSP was present) and we just saw a plow plowing both southbound lanes north of Richmond hill.
