There are no fire restrictions in our area currently, but there are extreme fire danger conditions due to exceptionally strong winds and low humidity values near 15%. Avoid anything that could cause a spark and wildfire.

East and southeast of our valley, the fire danger is HIGH in the San Carlos Ranger District to EXTREME in the Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands (the southeast corner of the state).

The Pike-San Isabel National Forests & Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands covers nearly three million acres from western Kansas and Colorado’s highest mountain peaks along the Continental Divide.

Conditions vary widely and can change quickly in the Rocky Mountain Region. For the most current information please check conditions on the forest where you will be traveling.

Keep in mind that with the high winds there is always a chance for power outages. If you see downed power lines, please assume they are live. Back away and call 911.


There aren’t any local construction or obstructions for today but…

… if you’re heading to Gunnison

Delays and closures began yesterday, March 6th and will continue until July 2023 for US 50 (mile 124-127) between Montrose and Gunnison for major road construction.

Please try to gather information about weather forecasts and anticipated travel impacts and current road conditions prior to hitting the road.


In the Sangre De Cristo District, the chances of avalanche today are moderate below, near, and above the treeline. Remember, moderate does not translate to safe. 

Strong wind has been a theme recently, and snow has loaded in some strange areas well down from ridgelines. Using clues in the snow to recognize which direction the wind has been blowing from is essential to reduce your risk when traveling. Avoid areas where you see signs of recent wind-loading such as fresh cornices, smooth rounded drifts of snow, or a hard, hollow-sounding snow surface.
