Keep up on the weather reports and you'll have a better idea, but it's sorta hard to tell even with that sometimes. It depends how much snow dumps and what its like and how idiotic people are driving. I70 does get shut down, but it's not terribly common. However, it can get pretty dicey before it ever gets shutdown.

spiritualspatula wrote:Also, a pertinent question to ask is...
being that you're from Texas, how much snow/ice driving experience do you have in the vehicle you'll be driving? I'm not saying this applies to you, but lots of people think that 4/all wheel drive means you can go fast and romp over anything... which is nice until you need to slow down, because you won't.

Since I didn't see any mention in the previous posts regarding the starting point for your trek, I thought I'd ask.
Do you know that you'll have to travel approximately 3 miles on foot before you reach the summer TH?

I got caught in a blizzard as I was driving from Taos' NM to Dallas and the storm followed me all the way home, so the 650+ mile trip was a bit of a crash course in snow driving. Other than that just a few instances of rather mild snow conditions, but I guess I have to get experience somehow
