From The Pueblo Chieftain (Matt Hildner):

Wolf Creek Ski Area reported 14 inches of new snow Monday, while provisional snow gauge readings from the Natural Resources Conservation Service indicate 5-6 inches fell along other parts of the eastern San Juans. Trace amounts of snow were reported west of Del Norte and south of Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, according to the National Weather Service…

In Eastern and Northeastern Colorado, about 250 miles of highways were reopened after a winter storm and high winds prompted authorities to halt traffic. Parts of Eastern Colorado remained under a high wind warning or a high-wind advisory Monday. The National Weather Service canceled a blizzard warning issued earlier in the day. Nearly 350 miles of highways were closed Monday morning and about 100 miles remained closed in the afternoon. Eastbound Interstate 70 from Denver to Kansas was among the highways that reopened.
