2:45 p.m., Roll over east of Copper Mountain exit on I-70 EB. Expect delays.

2:00 p.m., Traffic flow continues to fluctuate. East bound traffic is starting to increase again quite heavily.

11:55 a.m., Major delays on I-70 EB. Expect travel time of two and a half hours from Silverthorne to Eisenhower Tunnel.

10:10 a.m., Heavy WB traffic on I-70.

The ski resorts are already totaling powder, with Loveland and Arapahoe Basin leading with six and seven inches.

The snowfall counts are only going up from here.

Travel today will be slower than usual due to accidents and avalanche danger.

Stay tuned for today’s updates on the storm.
