Colorado law requires you to buckle up and that all windows be completely snow/ice free so that full vision is possible. More distance between you and the vehicle in front of you is required when driving on snowy/icy roads. If your vehicle is not equipped with anti-lock brakes, you do not want to lock up your brakes - pump them. Avoid braking on curves and remember 4 wheel drive vehicles should follow all of these same basic rules.



There is no foolproof method for avoiding altitude sickness, but drinking extra water and avoiding salty foods the week before you arrive seems to be the most helpful. For more info click :Altitude illness information
