Is there really any difference in mileage between those two options? Of course you might get snow on I25 anytime between Denver and Santa Fe. Traffic in Denver and Colorado Springs on I25 can be bad at the wrong time of day even in good weather. Also, although small, there is Raton Pass between Co. and NM to climb on I25.
