GRAND JUNCTION — Portions of Colorado's Western Slope continue to be battered by a winter storm that has dumped more than two feet of snow in some areas.

The National Weather Service said snowfall may be heavy at times through Thursday afternoon in northern Colorado, where gusty winds were expected to make for whiteout conditions on mountain roads. Storm accumulations were forecast to range from 15 to 30 inches.

Skiers and snowboarders were cheering fresh snow Wednesday, with the Steamboat resort reporting 8 more inches of fresh snow in the past 24 hours and 25 inches in the past 48 hours.

But multiple accidents were reported in eastbound Interstate 70 near Vail, and the Colorado Department of Transportation closed Loveland Pass on U.S. 6 for hours Wednesday due to adverse weather.
