I am headed to Fargo, ND on Friday from Vegas and I am curious about the roads. I am going to take the I-70 from Utah to Denver to the I-76 on up. If the weather is good do they keep the I-70 in Western Colorado open in the winter? Or do they always require chains and 4x4. I am headed up in my Civic. I am used to driving in winter conditions because I lived in the Dakota's but what I am worried about is hitting the I-70 and finding out its closed. Thanks!

I'm watching the morning TV news, they're talking about windy & warm on the eastern
plains but winter storms in the mountains today. It's probably more common for the chain
law to be in effect or the highway closed on I-70 between Vail <-> Eisenhower/Johnson
Tunnels than it is for I-70 to be closed on the eastern plains between the edge
civilization* & Kansas.
The chain law generally only affects commercial vehicles.
* The edge of civilization is... Limon? Kiowa? Dunno, but it depends on road conditions.
