I-70 is now open at Vail Pass, please drive safely
UPDATE (03:05 p.m.): I-70 is now open at Vail Pass. Please drive safely.
UPDATE at 9:53 a.m.: As the Colorado Department of Transportation works to clear snow off the road along I-70, the department has also closed US 6 at Loveland Pass due to avalanche control work.
The Colorado Department of Transportation has closed I-70 in both directions between Herman Gulch and Silverthorne for avalanche reduction work.
CDOT crews conducted avalanche mitigation this morning, which resulted in snow coming across all travel lanes. Crews are working to remove the snow pack at this time. CDOT estimates the closure may take up to four hours.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
