GUNNISON, Colo. (AP) -- An overnight blizzard has left parts of the Colorado mountains covered in new snow.
Whiteout conditions prompted the Colorado Department of Transportation to close U.S. 6 over Loveland Pass around 12:30 a.m. Sunday. Accidents temporarily closed various stretches of Interstate 70 in the mountains early Sunday. Gusts up to 93 mph were recorded in southwest Colorado.
Among ski resorts, Beaver Creek was reporting 15 new inches of snow, and Copper Mountain said it had 13 new inches of snow.
