Storm brings more snow to SW Colorado mountains

A storm that brought more than a foot of fresh snow to southwest Colorado briefly closed some mountain passes for avalanche control work, and more snow is on the way.

The National Weather Service said Sunday that a spotter in Silverton reported about 17 inches of snow from the storm, and Silverton Mountain reported 38 inches of new snow in the last 48 hours at the ski area.

U.S. 160 over Wolf Creek Pass was closed briefly Sunday for avalanche control work, and Colorado 65 at Grand Mesa was closed by an avalanche. There was no report of anyone trapped.

Most of western Colorado is under a winter storm warning until noon Monday.
