Wolf Creek gets more than 4 feet of snow from storm

DENVER — Snowfall from the latest storm to hit Colorado’s mountains has already surpassed 4 feet around Wolf Creek Pass.

The Wolf Creek Ski Area says it has received 52 inches of snow as of Tuesday morning from the storm that moved in Friday.

The National Weather Service says another 3 to 6 inches of snow are expected there and other spots above 10,000 feet in the eastern San Juan Mountains Tuesday. A blizzard warning remains in effect there through 5 p.m. because of gusty southwest winds.

Red Mountain Pass remains closed after an avalanche on Sunday left a debris pile 6 feet deep on U.S. Highway 550 south of Ouray.. Loveland Pass closed early Tuesday, forcing hazardous materials trucks to use the Eisenhower Tunnel on Interstate 70.
