A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
An Illinois man hurt during a weekend outing at Breckenridge Ski Resort is dead, after succumbing to massive head injuries sustained during a crash.
Authorities say 28-year-old Lee Robinson of Decatur, Illinois slammed into a tree along Peak Eight's 4 O'Clock run on Sunday.
He was transported to Swedish Medical Center in Englewood, but died Tuesday evening. Summit County Coroner Joanne Richardson says he was not wearing a helmet.
Robinson was the second person to die in less than a week after an accident at Breckenridge.
Forty-three-year-old Air Force reservist Major Stephan K.-Kajah of Monument died February 15th.
Richardson says he suffered blunt force trauma to the chest after apparently making too wide of a turn on Peak 8, and hitting a tree.
