Major disadvantages of Uber from Denver to Vail, Breckenridge, and Aspen

Since majority of the business for Uber within the city limits, Uber drivers don’t have enough experience driving on snow and ice, furthermore they don’t prepare vehicles for driving up to the mountains. Usually you can get around Denver all year around with little front wheel drive vehicle and all season tires, and that’s what 95% of Uber drivers have, but it is not good enough for the mountain transfers. There is a Traction Law on I-70 through the mountain corridor, so all vehicles should have All Wheel Drive or Snow Tires or travelers have to put chains on (you can drive up to 35 mph with chains). Vehicles that don’t comply with Traction Law will not be allowed and will have to turn around.
For the same reason most of the drivers won’t drive to the mountain, so your order can be dropped off several times before you find the driver whom wants to go outside of city limits, and you don’t want to spend time dealing with it on your vacation.
