Here's my dilema:
I have an 8:55 AM flight back east on Wed, Feb 11. I'm in Vail for vacation. I normally have an afternoon flight and come through Denver late morning...no problem; it's ~ 2 hours if no bad weather.
Just how much extra time should I allow for rush-hour traffic? Should I leave the day before, after skiing, and stay in a hotel on Pena? I'd miss a last evening in Vail Village. Is it worth it to avoid traffic? As it is, I need to be at the car rental return ~7:00 AM.
