Lots of snow for Colorado

DENVER, Colorado ” A winter storm has dropped up to nine inches of snow in Colorado, giving skiers and snowboarders a reason to be thankful after a stretch of warm weather.

The National Weather Service says the snow has begun tapering off. The chance for more snow on Thanksgiving Day and Friday is just 10 percent.

Vail Mountain ski resort opened for the season Wednesday with four inches of new snow after delaying its opening from last week.

The Colorado Department of Transportation reports highways are slushy, snowy or icy in spots. No major roads have been closed but chain restrictions are in effect over most mountain passes.

The high in Denver is expected to reach only into the 20s on Wednesday.
