Independence Pass closing for season Friday
Independence Pass is scheduled to close for the season Friday afternoon.
The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says a big storm is expected to arrive in western Colorado late Friday, bringing snow to the mountains. The National Weather Service says up to 16 inches of snow is expected by Sunday.
Colorado Department of Transportation officials say it's time to close Colorado Highway 82 over the pass with the storm on its way.
