Thank you

Completely impossible to predict. Most likely you will have completely clear roads and will be able to drive right to your hotel or condo. You might encounter some snow on the side roads right in Silverthorne and the parking lots. But its also possible that you will land in a snowstorm and be stuck in Denver until it blows over. Check the road status site just before you get on the plane:

March is one of the snowiest months in Colorado so you should be prepared for winter driving conditions. Some tips here: www.coloradodot.info/travel/winter-driving

You definitely want to check road conditions at the website given in reply #1 when you pick up your rental vehicle. The Colorado Dept. of Transportation (CDOT) has a free smartphone mobile application for travelers called CDOT Mobile. To download CDOT Mobile, simply text “CDOT” to 25827 or search CDOT Mobile in your App Store.

If you are uncomfortable driving in adverse weather conditions, you may want to consider one of the express shuttle options. They could transport your group directly from the airport to Silverthorne.
