Default Commute time: Golden CO to Denver Airport

Can anyone tell me the realistic commute time from Golden to the Denver airport, both peak and non-peak times? Also interested in the same info for Boulder. Thanks!

non-peak: about 40 minutes
peak: one hour

from boulder, it would be a little longer.

Boulder: probably about an hour. Peak/off peak doesn't seem to make much difference.

Peak and off peak make a huge difference. Not so much west of 25 but as soon as you get east towards colorado blvd. it is a nightmare

From Boulder you can take the toll road (northwest expressway or some such) there's never any traffic, takes 30-40 minutes. No peak/non peak. You just have to pay. Can't help with Golden.

This is what I was referring to.

Golden should ideally be 25-35 minutes in smooth traffic. But that won't happen, so expect an hour to 1.5 hours. God forbid if it rains or snows.

At the speed limit 30-35 minutes without traffic from downtown Denver.

Add 20-30 minutes from Golden.

I've done it in 19 at 4:30AM pushing 170 on Pena with no one else to endanger -- yes stupid.
