I am taking my family of 5 to Snowmass from the East Coast in mid March. I'm trying to decide between flying nonstop to Denver and driving 4 hours versus flying to Eagle and driving 1 hour. The flight to Eagle stops in Denver or somewhere in the Midwest.
The flight to Denver is much quicker and cheaper and it's on Southwest which seems pretty reliable. My concern is that a storm could make the Denver to Snowmass drive a huge nightmare. And I-70 could be closed. But on the other hand such a storm might close out Eagle Airport, correct? (I've never been there.)
I don't mind driving a little extra to avoid indirect flights. Especially in the winter.
So what's the bigger risk from a storm: inability to drive from Denver to Snowmass or inability to fly from Denver to Eagle?
Yes I noticed "Getting" is misspelled but can't figure out how to correct mistakes in the title. And I'm a stickler for spelling!
