In 30+ years of living in the mountains, I've never failed to make it to the front range, regardless of the weather, if I needed to get there. Sometimes you will need an alternate route, but never totally stopped. Over the years its been a guaranty that if we are flying out of DIA in the winter, and driving down to catch a flight, there will be a major winter storm happening when we leave Steamboat.

then again people think FC is THE greatest place on earth. sure it's good, but not the end all be all. often i meet people who moved west (from the upper mid-west) and hit FC and stopped...and went no further ever.
You'd think Walt Disney had set up shop in Fort Collins.

Went to a Super Bowl party in Highlands Ranch or somesuchplace and thought it felt like the dark side of the moon...

Camped near canyon lands last weekend. It was awesome! Never dropped below 45* and got as high as 64*.
