Weather impact on travel: What happens if the weather impacts our ability to travel to the Alpine Villa? We have no control over the weather, and therefore cannot be responsible for it. If your travel to the Alpine Villa is impeded in any way, it is your responsibility. It is rare that it snows so much that the highways or the Denver airport shuts down. When it does, however, there are generally alternative travel routes available. We suggest you check the weather forecast as time gets closer to your arrival date. See Weather Forecast. In the event I-70 closes, Hwy 285 can be an alternative route from Denver to Breckenridge. We also suggest driving a 4-wheel drive automobile if snow is in the forecast during your stay. See www.cotrip.org for current Colorado driving conditions.
