I can't say that Denver landings are from the North or South more often than another. I would guess that landings from the East and West are the least common though.
The runways all seem to be pretty well utilized. I believe that the pinwheel layout plays a big part. As far as the east-west runways concern, 25 is used quite frequently for departures, as well as 8. 7 is also used quite a bit for landings, but I have yet to land on 26.
Hope this helps!

Flew into SLC once and drove to the airport MANY times on that trip to pick up assorted passengers for a wedding party, and noticed that predominately the traffic goes South to North. This was in May though, and maybe seasonal changes affect this. I don't recall any North to South traffic.

Thanks for the SLC info!
OK, I admit I shouldn't have said criss-cross for DEN. Pinwheel is the right term? What I really meant was that the runways are spread out in an unusual way, but three run north-south and two run east-west.
