GUNNISON, Colo. (AP) -- An overnight blizzard has left parts of the Colorado mountains covered in new snow.

Whiteout conditions prompted the Colorado Department of Transportation to close U.S. 6 over Loveland Pass around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, and gusts up to 93 mph were recorded in southwest Colorado.

Accidents temporarily closed various stretches of Interstate 70 early Sunday.

Among ski resorts, Beaver Creek was reporting 15 new inches of snow.
