How long does it really take to get from just West of Denver out to the Summit county resorts? Distance from Golden to Vail is listed at 88 miles, but I've heard horror stories of I-70 backing up for hours on winter weekends. What would be the closest ski area drive wise? Berthoud or A-Basin? Thanks for the help!

We live down in Highlands Ranch and it takes us about 1.5 hours to get up to A-basin/Keystone/Breckenridge. I imagine from Golden it would be a bit less than an hour. Of course, that depends on the roads and traffic (accidents).

On the weekends, traffic up the mountains in the morning can be a problem, as well as coming down the mountains after the lifts close. If you get dinner before going down, you can skip most of the traffic going down. In the morning, just leave as early as you can.
