Summit County weather report: Resorts boast 15-18 inches with more on the way

We got buried last night. Plenty of plowing, scraping, shoveling and towing is going on this morning. There was even an avalanche on I-70 early this morning on Vail Pass. Avalanche risks are very high.

All road surfaces from Idaho Springs through Vail are under an icy and snow-packed mix. As of 8 a.m., Berthoud, Loveland and Vail Pass were closed. Stay tuned for the latest updates on road conditions and weather forecasts.
