I just skimmed over a few of the comments, but with the colorado dlc coming out. Will scs please address the weather, because colorado would be a very good example of having very different weather in many different locations going on all at once.
Just giving example, there has been many trips that Ive gone through Co, and going up I-25 through colorado springs and it would be raining there, up to denver, then start heading west on I-70 climbing in elevation to the Eisenhower tunnel and just on the west side coming out of the tunnel, its snowing, start going back down in elevation and by the time I would reach Grand Junction, it would be in the high 80's to 90s. All this weather going on in the middle of the summer

The route also carried out in the reverse direction leaving, Crested Butte city and reaching the city of Buena Vista.

I hope it can be useful for SCS when doing the Colorado DLC or later on it is recorded in the information.

Red Rocks Ampitheatre, Morrison, CO, Near Denver.

let's leave a research tip, about an important historical landmark that is very close to the city of Denver.
Maybe it's interesting to put in the game, maybe the use of aerial sockets will allow players in the ATS game to take some good screenshots and make videos on the spot, to have a scenic view of the region and the city of Denver ... or something in that sense. Perhaps it is possible to observe the landscape very well.

Not sure if SCS will still look in here now that CO is out, but I noticed that Sterling, Colorado uses an old street layout. Starting early last year, CoDOT rerouted SH 14 through the town for better traffic flow.

Old layout of Sterling, and what we have in game:

Current layout of Sterling:
