Colorado ski areas report up to 18 inches of snow

DENVER (AP) - A weekend storm has dropped up to 18 inches of snow in Colorado, triggering chain requirements on Interstate 70 and other mountain highways.

The National Weather Service reported 10 inches of snow by Sunday morning near Tiny Town, about 15 miles southwest of Denver. Four inches of new snow was reported in Carbondale in western Colorado.

Ski resorts in Vail and Silverton reported 18 inches of snow in the past 24 hours. Arapaho Basin reported 11 inches and Breckinridge reported 10 inches.

The Colorado Department of Transportation says tire chains are required on trucks and buses across much of I-70 and on southbound lanes of Interstate 25 in far southern Colorado.

Chains are also required on trucks and buses on U.S. 550 in southwest Colorado.
