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 just after midnight, and gusts up to 93 mph were recorded in southwest Colorado.

Accidents temporarily closed various stretches of Interstate 70 this morning. The Colorado State Patrol was investigating a crash that killed three people early this morning on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon, where up to 4 inches of snow were reported.

The National Weather Service if forecasting snow through Wednesday. Most of the state's ski resorts are shutting down for the season, but among those still open all, Beaver Creek was reporting 15 inches.
