Winter Storm Preparation

Winter Storm Warning

The Town of Wellington is preparing for the winter storm warning, and you should too! In order for Town crews to be as efficient as possible during snow events, we need help from residents. 


A high-impact snowstorm is in the forecast late Friday through the weekend, with 1-to-3 feet of snow projected. Keep a close watch on the weather/road conditions, and please stay off the roads during the storm. Wellington Fire Protection District recommends gathering supplies in case you need to stay home for several days without power. You should have extra non-perishable food, water, batteries, a flashlight, battery-operated candles, and a radio. Keep in mind each person’s specific needs, including medication. Remember the needs of your pets too! 


Park your vehicle off the street so plows can clear. If you leave your vehicle on the street and there is a major snow event, your car could become buried. Additionally, clear streets make it easier for emergency services to respond when needed. 


Regardless of your destination, get there before the storm hits. If you are planning to travel the I-70 mountain corridor for a weekend in the mountains, head to your destination BEFORE Friday evening. Please visit COtrip.org for road conditions and updates.


Town of Wellington crews will be out in force and plowing roads alongside Larimer County and CDOT. Town plows will focus on priority areas detailed in the Snow and Ice Control Plan. Larimer County will plow county roads outside town limits. CDOT will focus on clearing I-25, I-70 and impacted interstates such as Highway 1 (Cleveland Ave) in priority order. Drivers should leave enough space behind the vehicle ahead of you, and DO NOT PASS snowplows. Plows will make multiple passes on these roads during the storm and will not be able to plow the secondary routes until the worst of the storm has passed. This means many roadways could be heavily snow-packed, making for hazardous driving conditions.


During a high impact snow storm, travel should be limited to emergency and essential reasons with the proper vehicle and tires for heavy snow. Do not attempt to drive in such weather conditions unless you have the appropriate tires with good tread. If you are out in the storm, have an emergency kit with blankets, food, batteries, water, a shovel and survival supplies should you get stuck or stranded.


Learn more about how you can help and view plow priorities with the Snow and Ice Control Plan.
