More snow for Colo. mountains, Denver area

DENVER — An arctic blast is bringing frigid temperatures, wind and snow to Colorado.

Powderhorn Ski Area reported 14 inches today, as did Steamboat Ski and Resort, and the Aspen Highlands and Beaver Creek ski areas both reported 11.

With such deep, fresh snow, Steamboat ski patrol director John Kohnke warned skiers and riders to steer clear of tree wells. The soft, snowy areas around tree trunks can act like quicksand when someone falls in them.

The snow canceled 65 flights at Denver International Airport. Some airlines are offering waivers to customers who rebook their flights.

It also snowed in the San Luis Valley in southern Colorado, where the snowpack has been lagging.
