A fall snowstorm dropped more snow than expected causing some power lines to fall, and traffic to come to a stand-still on I-25.

Westbound Highway 24 was closed between Chipeta Park and Cascade due to numerous slide-offs, but reopened shortly after 9:00pm.

Colorado Springs Police are on Accident Alert, meaning those involved in non-injury accidents with no alcohol involved should exchange driver and insurance information and report the accident to police within 72-hours.

I-25 has been backed up all evening, and the worst area seems to be near Monument, where more than 6 inches of snow has fallen in some places.

Snow is hampering travel on Interstate 70.

The highway is closed at Georgetown after some trucks without chains got stuck in the snow. The state transportation department says those trucks are getting chains now and the road should re-open soon.

I-70 is closed westbound from Georgetown to the Eisenhower Tunnel. Eastbound, it's closed from Bakersville to Georgetown.

Up to a foot of snow is expected in parts of the north and central mountains through tomorrow morning. Another system also brought some new snow last night.

The Aspen Skiing Company says 16 inches of new snow fell at Snowmass. Loveland ski area is reporting 7 inches in the last 24 hours.
