You won't be driving to the top of Mt Elbert, so I wouldn't be too worried about that! lol!
You'll be fine in the altitude with your Trep. Modern, computerized cars aren't affected as much as the old "Carb'd" vehicle with distributors, etc...
I grew up in CO, and I currently live in Utah, so I've got some "winter driving" experience... Every winter, I drive my Trep in the snow, and have made several trips up to the local ski resorts and also several trips through CO in the middle of winter. They keep the roads pretty clean, and if you have a good set of snow tires, or even All-seasons (like me), you should be fine. Just take your time, and enjoy the trip!
Just out of curiosity...why Leadville? It's kinda out of the way of things... lol!
