    Default KC to Colorado Springs, Mar 28 weekend

    The choice is between our 4WD Dodge Durango and our 2007 MINI Cooper S. The MINI has all-seasons; the Durango M+S all-terrain tires...

    Take the hit on gas ($120 savings and much more fun to drive the MINI in the mountains if it's not weather-ridden) to increase my safety factor? The Durango handles like a champ in the snow and slush bits... the MINI can turn into a snow-plow in anything over a few inches, but it does have lots of fancy electronic stability control features that handle great in ice.

    Will it still be snowing in the region then?

    Default play it by ear

    I'd say the odds would favor clear conditions, but you couldn't totally rule out snow at this point. More than likely, I think you'd be seeing above freezing temps, but weather is a fickle thing, especially this year, so I'd plan on taking the mini, but check the forecast before your departure and switch to the truck if things look problematic.
