Denver International Airport officials were gearing up for snow in the forecast Thursday night and Friday.

Airport spokesman Steve Snyder said more than 120 snow-removal crew members will work 12-hour shifts until the storm has passed.

John Kinney, deputy manager of aviation operations, said the airport learned from the December blizzard of last year to aggressively prepare for snowfall.

DIA will have more than 100 pieces of equipment available for snow-removal on the airfield, and more than 50 pieces of equipment for the surrounding roadways and Pena Boulevard.
