Denver has maybe 10-15 days when true winter tires are needed. So, these tires are perfect. They give up ice and moderate to deep snow traction for really good dry weather and light snow traction. Best winter tire dry and wet weather traction out there. But, if you spend a lot of time in moderate or heavy snow, or you want good ice traction, these are not the tires for you. Still, a very good high performance tire that will get you through moderate snow.
