I’ll offer Hwy 31A from Kaslo to New Denver, just great.

California 229 would definitely be in my top 3 favorite 510 roads. 1.5 lanes wide, no centerline, tight and twisty, and beautifully cambered. Here's a clip from a run in spring 2009:

Beautiful road, amazingly you had it pretty much to yourself!

Checking out some of my favorite cams to see what the snow level is doing.

That is the #1 Trans-Canada on the far side of the river, one of our cruise routes to the Interior of B.C..

Like a lot of places, we are getting some more snow and cold this week.

The old pass East of Golden was so entertaining - steep with tight corners. Any bits of that accessible anymore?

Not sure what you mean..maybe an original highway pass for #1?

The #1 still goes through there of course.

Been a long time since I have been through any of those areas, so many people packing into the whole Banff and Jasper corridors.

Last time I was up there we stayed in Kootenay National park and day tripped early to Banff. Like so many places it is just overloaded now. Nice highway for a cruise.

Highway 145 between Dolores and Telluride Colorado. Especially in the fall. Feeling adventurous? Take the county road 38 (CR 38) turnoff for the road less traveled.

Highway 14 from Ted's Place to Walden Colorado. BIG fire there last year, sadly the largest in the history of Colorado. Cameron Pass was one of the highlights. Hopefully water erosion isn't too bad and the forest regrows in my lifetime.
