If you’ve been around Colorado for long, you’ve probably heard of the blizzard of 1997. Dumping 3+ feet of snow around the state, this blizzard was a true winter storm. It lasted from Friday, October 24 through Saturday, October 25, bringing whiteout conditions to those in the Front Range and beyond. It’s also one of the deadliest blizzards in Colorado’s recent history, resulting in 4 human deaths and 50,000 cattle deaths in the Eastern Plains. Here’s a firsthand look at this storm, thanks to 9NEWS.
