DENVER (AP) – A storm system that’s been socking parts of Colorado’s mountains with snow has eased up a bit, providing a bit of a break for travelers who want to enjoy the powder.

There was a lull in the system Wednesday morning but the snow was expected to intensify again by mid-afternoon.

Interstate 70 is back open but icy conditions were reported along the highway between Georgetown and Glenwood Springs.

Heavy snow was expected again on Thursday, including lower elevations of between 6,000 and 7,000 feet.

The National Weather Service says the heaviest snow is expected from the top of the Grand Mesa to the Elk and West Elk Mountains, including the area near Crested Butte.

Gothic near Crested Butte has reported getting over 6 feet of snow since Saturday.
