It was sunny, then windy, then - SNOWY!
Snow has been falling off and on in Colorado's high country for days, and there's no sign it's stopping anytime soon.
The good news: There's lots of powder. More than some will know what to do with.
The bad news: Most of the roads are slick. Others are clogged, if not closed.
I-70 was closed Thursday morning around Vail Pass. UPDATE: It reopened before noon! So was Berthoud Pass. UPDATE: Berthoud, Loveland and Hoosier passes still closed at noon!
Check cotrip.org for updates. Crews have been working since Wednesday night, but it's a mission to keep the roads safe for drivers.
A few overnight snow totals
Arapahoe Basin: 9"
Copper Mountain: 3"
Beaver Creek: 3"
