I am going to be visiting the Denver area and we are going to rent a car. I can't put chains on the car per the rental policy.
Does anyone know if chains are needed at this time? I will be there this Sunday.
That's a pretty drive and could be hairy if there were serious fresh snow, but I don't think the forecast suggests that for Sunday. There could be light snow showers, but I doubt any problem at the elevation level where the road gets into the tightest part of Boulder canyon. Go for it. If you get into trouble, park the car and hitch.
Eldora is a fine, fun little ski area with pretty scenery. 12th is last day party with music and Bunnies.
