Again, these depend upon which way you're driving to/from Winter Park...

You can search for these at the above mentioned TrailDamage.com : Rock Creek, Bunce School Road (and Ironclads). Bunce is gated at the southern end'ish but the northern end is open. Rock Creek is about 10 minutes up the highway from Bunce. These are on the front range - west of Longmont you might say. Lefthand Canyon I think is open. Many of the "gulches" might be open.

Yeah, I'll be coming across i70 from Moab. From what I saw on Trails.com it looked like Silverthorne would be a good place to stay for a couple days and run some trails. I was looking a Webster. Although I'd enjoy the scenic, my son would like to do some crawling. Was looking at being there about 8/6 - 8/7.

What better way to spend your birthday, go wheeling. I could even arrange a celebratory beverage.

Grand junction has some sweet trails that will most likely be drive able year 'round (Bangs canyon system, Rattlesnake). Montrose may be use able too(die trying, etc) These trails are not for stock, though... Near Denver there are a few depending on the snow load, Yankee hill, Slaughterhouse gulch... again perhaps not stock jeep trails in the snow.
Don't go alone.
But mostly in winter it is snow, and closures. Snow bashing is hard. Kicks, but work.
(some trails open late July due to snow load, July to September is it on some.)

The Silverthorne area and I70 corridor trails are mostly "scenic" trails. There are some like SOB Hill or Spring Creek that MAY be able to be done in an open diff vehicle. Spring Creek may make for a long day of winching.

Wheeler Lakes just south of Breckenridge can be done in an open diff vehicle. That trail all depends on line choice. It has some great obstacles. I did all but bowling ball hill on 31's with open diffs, granted a dragged a ton on my undercarriage.

I need to update my profile. My son built it up. We're on 35's, D44's front and back, with lockers front and back.

Well that changes everything! Spring Creek, SOB Hill, Wheeler Lake, and all for sure. Holy Cross isn't all that far from Silverthorne. That trail gets write up in the magazines.
